Interesting amber. Clear, reddish-amber body with a thin, off-white head. Light lacing on the descent. Smell: Crystal malts, some modest notes of toasted bread and grains with an additional hint of fruit and alcohol. Taste: Amply sweet crystal maltiness with some toast, some graininess, and a hint of light-colored brown sugar. Moderate sweetness overall. Resiny hops, some pithy-accented citrus and fair degree of bitterness. Tiny flourish of berry. Long bittersweet finish. Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation. Slight creaminess within. Coats the back of the throat.

Pint at blue door. Deep amber, tiny tan head. Aroma has a hint of red fruit. Opens smooth sweet and fruity. Finish is strange, spicy and lagery.

wnoble (1251) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - DEC 2, 2012
Pours deep red and clear with some lingering lace. Sweet malt and caramel aroma with a mild note of citrus and spicy hops. Flavor is prominent Aramark malt sweetness with a touch of citrus hop flavor. Sweet finish but not overly cloying. Medium bitterness. Easy to drink and sweet. Not my favorite but not a bad beer.

klas (412) - SWEDEN - DEC 2, 2012
UPDATED: DEC 21, 2012 Bottle from Systembolaget. 26 SEK. Dry hopped. Great hop aroma and taste. Rather bitter. Not filtered - you can see some remainings from the dry hopping (?).

olsvammel (6851) - rebro, SWEDEN - DEC 2, 2012
Bottle from Systembolaget. Musty smell and taste of dried fruit, caramel and some light spices that reminds me a bit about some pumpkin ales. But not at powerful. Fairly sweet, might work well with the salty christmas food. Feels a bit lonely on its own.

Caramel sweet, bold hop smell; Red clear dark amber; slightly sweet bitter but not intense, mild body; smooth and just right viscosity; would definitely drink again

tmongoose (2441) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - DEC 1, 2012
on draft...poured a reddish color with no head at all...tried to get a good aroma but there wasnt much at all except a minimal sweet malt...the flavor was mediocre just that sweet maltiness, minimal hops no bitterness at all...smooth but i was good for one.

Ktwse (4466) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 1, 2012
Pours clear amber with white head. Aroma of barnyard, earth, caramel and ripe fruit. Sweetish taste with a very floral finish, only a hint of bitterness. Nice, but a bit odd. Can't put my finger on exactly what the sweetness resembles. Body is light to medium, somewhat creamy, but with a lively heavy carbonation. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

sfontain (851) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - NOV 30, 2012
Deep reddish brown color; nice looking tan head just after the pour and long lacing down the glass, though the head doesnt persist long. Deep malty aroma, a bit bready and light notes of caramel and maybe roast; floral hops. Flavor is a little lacking in depth; lightly malty but just a tad too heavy on the hops. Medium body; not quite silky carbonation but smooth; lightly sticky on the lips. Good beer overall; doesnt clearly show the 7% abv; bit heavy on the hops.
