The night before Christmas

In Denmark we have a brew for every occasion. This one surfaces around Christmas, a sweet, white beer, made for the temperamental and teaseful little creature, we call "nisse". About the size of a 10 year old boy, this guy (and his wife and his children) are rumoured to create havoc with your life, should you neglect to serve him his annual white porridge, with butter. And his brew. This is the night before Christmas, and most supermarkets are out of nearly all staples. True to seasonal behaviour, the Copenhageners are stocking up on everything like there is no tomorrow. Get your nisse brew while you can, or else...
