Bottle from Utobeer, London. Nose of honey, malt, hops and spices. Pours a golden amber colour beer with a reasonable head and some lacing. Taste is quite sweet with citrus and spicy notes. Finishes quite dry. Quite average. MoritzF (10018) - Ottobrunn, GERMANY - JAN 8, 2008
(25cl bottle) Clear, golden colour with a medium-sized, slowly lacing foamy white head. Slightly dusty, moderately sweet pale malt aroma, slightly wheaty and honey-fruity with notes of lemon. Sweet-bitter flavour, medium bodied with slightly fizzy carbonation. Pale malt character, moderately fruity, zesty taste; quite dry, slightly bitter and spicy finish. Nothing special.

Bottle from beers of europe. Aroma is sweet pale malts and candy sugar, peppery more than spicey. Taste is a similar bag of banter, good carbonation, very drinkable. KimJohansen (10510) - Frederiksberg C, DENMARK - DEC 25, 2007

25 cL bottle, Kerstbierfestival 2007 in Essen/Belgium as #78 Noël/Christmas/Weihnacht. Pours clear and golden yellow with a lacing white head. Slight mouldy aroma. Flavour is sweet malty with a little metallic edge. Ends with a mellow yeasty and mild mouldy note. Nice but close to mediocre. JoeinDahlem (1584) - Berlin, GERMANY - DEC 8, 2007
Leave it to a brewery known for its old browns to mark the holidays with a freshly hoppy blonde. My 25 cL pours old gold with a receding lacy head. Somewhat faint aroma is sweetish, caramel-malty. Flavor has a refreshing, earthy bitterness (for a Belgian) and light sweetness. Nice balance. Average carbonation is tight and leans toward lively. Maybe not special, but not bad at all.

Gold with a small white head. Herbal but also sweet aroma. Balanced flavor: a bit sweet and spicy with a bitter and alcoholic end.
