Pours a slightly opaque dark amber appearance.

Smell is incredibly sweet, full of ginger,coriander, and cloves.

This is very drinkable, and yet it tastes like few other beers. A previous reviewer compared it to soda, and that seems quite accurate. It's amazingly sweet.

If you ever want to get intoxicated on Coke (the drink), this is for you. Otherwise, this is quite simplistic yet agreeable.

The nice smell of cardamom leaves place to a dissapointing more cola-like taste.

The color of the beer is dark brown , pours with a off-white compact foam that leaves residues in the glass.

The smell is very sweet and full of cardamom, some dried fruits like raisins and dates.

The taste follows the smell very much, extremely sweet, tons of cardamom and some malty tones. Very little bitterness.

It behaves more like a soda, tingly and sweet.

If you're looking for a traditional Swedish Christmas beer this is far too sweet for most food, however at it's own as a sweet dessert it's quite good. Especially for a cardamom junkie like me ...

The colour is clear, deep brown with a tint of red. The finger-thick beige foam is quite compact.

The smell is sweet with a very strong spicy touch of cardamom and cloves. There are also some minor flavours of dark bread and aroma hops.

The carbonation is sort of soda-like, maybe a bit too strong.

The taste is very sweet with notes of spices like cardamom, cloves, ginger and cinnamon. It feels not so much of a beer than a “mixed malt” drink or a soda. There is a weak bitterness and a chemical-sweet note in this brew. The cardamom dominates the long lasting aftertaste. It is rather un-complex and the sweetness is so strong, that my lips felt sticky after drinking it.

The “mumma” is a traditional Swedish yuletide drink dating from the late 19th century. The details differ between the families, but a basic recipe is the following: Mix equal parts porter and lager (or ale) in a large jug. Add some Sockerdricka (kind of a lemonade without the lemons). If you want to, you could add Madeira (or another sweet strong wine), vodka or maybe a small amount of spices, whatever you fancy. Serve immediately. In other words, this “Mumma” from Falcon (AKA Carslberg Sweden) is quite far away from those traditions.
