Beautiful amber color; generous creamy head. Malt aroma, bread. Smooth, quite malty, a lot of caramel, some sweetness in the front, correctly balanced at the end, without being outstanding.

(Bottled) Clear, dark amber color with medium, tanned head. Dry and slightly burned-malty aroma with rye bread and cookies. Malty, ashy flavor with some dark-toffeeish caramel. Even some licorice notes when warmer. Quickly fading, smooth finish. Very easily drinkable. Medium-bodied, slightly sugary and carbonated palate. Not that bad for the style, and probably accompanies a christmas dinner just fine. Clearly better than the Finnish vienna-style bulk christmas brews. TimE (6353) - Tokyo, JAPAN - DEC 13, 2007
Dark brown color, caramel and spice in the nose. Slightly sour, caramel, milk chocolate in the mouth. Caramel raisin finish. This would be better if it just wasn’t so sour. OleR (4801) - Oslo, NORWAY - DEC 27, 2008
Canned. A big airy, lightly tanned head upon a clear brownish red colored body. Clean, nutty caramel aroma with sugary notes. Sweet , burned sugary malt flavor. Not sticky, quite crisp actually. But there is almost no bitterness to deal with it, only a touch of acidulous fruits. Well-bodied. Slick mouthfeel. Sweet finish. SaintMatty (7650) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - DEC 10, 2010
500ml Can - Copper/red with a foamy head. Malty, fruity and slightly sweet aroma with caramel and dried fruit detected. Fruity and malty taste with raisins, caramel and marzipan. The finish is fruity, malty, sweet and moderately bitter.

Can from IKEA rated from notes. As a winter beer the lack of spicing was a bit disappointing but as a Vienna Lager it was alright, plus the price was cheap. Vighals (4597) - SÃ¸rumsand, NORWAY - NOV 5, 2016
Mahognifarget klar med høyt beige skum som ligger bra. Lukter pepper, noe anis, toast og kandissukker. Søt maltig smak, kandis, brent karamell med en lett kort bitter avslutning. Geiserich (4713) - Linz, AUSTRIA - OCT 31, 2005

Malty aroma, pronounced malt roastiness. Light brown, thick head. Chestnut brown color. Flavor is malty, few sweet with roasted malt notes. Light caramel and dark chocolate flavor. Dry, light to medium bitter finish.
Bottle, at home.
Redbrown with a small head. Aroma moderate malty and hoppy (caramel). Flavor moderate sweet and light bitter. Light to medium body, soft carbonated. Not that much Christmas in this beer either! larsniclas (7321) - Billdal, SWEDEN - NOV 17, 2006
Dark amber. Small, short head.
Some chocolate and toffee in the aroma.
Also present in flavour with licorice added. Not bad.
