Aroma: Smell of dried citrus, some grassy, fruity tones. A metallic hint.fellebag (1476) - Oslo, NORWAY - DEC 24, 2013
Appearance: An amber, dark read clear liquid, rather much foam slowly settling down, with remaining lacerations.
Taste: Clear bitterness but rather fresh and not sweet as most Swedish "julöl" (yule ale, christmas beer).
Palate: Moderate to small sized bubbles, very refreshingly to drink.
Overall: In all a good clean winter brew.
