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.

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.

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.

500 ml can. Dark reddish brown colour with a tall fluffy off-white head. Crystal clear and the head clings to the glass. Clean aroma with a hint of münchenermalts. Quite dry with just a hint of dark malts. A little drying bitterness in the finish. Well-balanced and clean, but boring.

Some beers and food at a late lunch gathering with Finn and Catweazle during Die Stadezeit. A 330ml bottle of this Swedish yule beer came first and stood forth in a clear, red-brown coloured body with a moderate brownish head. Malty aroma with notes of plums. Balanced flavour of roasted grain with taste of dry bitterness in the ending. Rounded mouthfeel (28.12.2006).
