German Christmas Market in Birmingham (West Midlands): 5th Dec 2012. Draught pint into a 'Lowenbrau (Munich) glass tankard.

Looked good in the sunlight on a really cold, crisp afternoon: Deep amber/mahongany in colour, clear and clean: on top a thin off-white covering that turned into a small wisp and a collar fairly quickly.

Pleasant malty aroma and taste: semi-sweet with hints of winter/Christmas spices, cinnamon? Nice surprise to see this at the huge 180+ stall annual event: most places just sold 'German Lager' and didn't even give the brewery name or ABV: I hate that, it is worse when the staff don't know what beer it is either!

Highlight of the tasting was the stall next door with its Hams being cooked on rotating spits and the talking/singing reindeer head above the next nearest beer hut.

Serving type: on-tap

I bought this 15 days ago, almost two months after Christmas and I was waiting for the perfect opportunity to drink it. No, not really, it was just sitting in my fridge and when I decided to drinikit, the TV happened to play the Christmas special of one of my favorite shows. Coincidence? Certainly!
Bottle of 330 ml.It pours a light brown colour, transparent, brownish head, 2 fingers. Lots of bubbles.
Smell of chocolate, caramel.
Taste is of bitter chocolate. Alcohol somewhat traceable although not that high. 4
Medium thickness on the body and average carbonation.
I may look for it next Christmas if I am anywhere close to Germany.

330ml bottle poured into Leffe chalice. Dark copper colour, slight haze, one finger head. Not much of an aroma, slight maltyness if anything. Tasted sweet and malty, had a grainy aftertaste. It was a bit unbalanced. Fairly smooth without too much carbonation. Nothing special.
