UPDATED: JUN 28, 2005 (Bottle 33 cl) Dark brown beer with a tall, thick, brownish head. Pronounced maltiness (probably from loads of münchener) adding a sweetness well-balanced by the hops. Very, very classsical Swedish christmas beer. 180703

grefwen (7) - Jämjö, SWEDEN - JAN 14, 2004 does not count
I'm not fond of christmasbrews, and this was no exception. It doesn't taste very much, and gave an overall boring impression. I'm not saying that it should be avoided at all cost, but I wouldn't be sorry if the store was all out of it when I came to make my purchase.
