Vienna? Didn’t seem to "Vienna" to me. Nice nose, very woody and malty with residual spiciness. Has the usual caramel malts, but they’re quite good here.

color is reddish/amber. head is initially quite large but thins out...lasting though. oak, malts, caramel and a touch of nutmeg was picked up by this nose. flavor is sweet with some woody notes as well. overall, surprisingly thin, but did have a decent aroma in my opinion.

Very light aroma, sweetness and not much else discernible. Sweet flavor, hints of oak and malt, but pretty light for a winter. Not bad, but nothing special.

sweet with dark fruit. medium red / brown in color. little hopping. not much malt - but not really thin either. reminds me of their aass bock. a different spin on the winter beer style - I like it - but it needs to be stronger.

Deep brown color with a ring around the collar looking dirty white head. Rather sour milk-like aroma. Quite sweet with a very restrained hop presence.

BillKismet (3502) - Seattle, Washington, USA - DEC 4, 2002
Amber with a thick creamy head and a delicate, but nice malt smell. The flavor was of malt and carmel. A well-balanced, highly drinkable, good tasting vienna.

Try the stronger ’klasse F’ version of their Juleĝl instead. Rerate 2002: Has the good caramel sweetness, maltiness and spiciness a Norwegian Christmas beer should have - there’s just too little of everything! And 4,5% ABV is simply not enough for this style. The ’klasse F’ (6,2%) is still A LOT better!! I believe the version sold in the US is 5,9%.

Dark brown color, large head. Dark malts. Light tasting, light bodied. Light malt and hops. Mouthfeel is full. Finish is clean. Aftertaste is malty and slightly bitter.

This was a decent beer, but didn’t make me think of a Vienna. Sweet on the tongue and almost wood like. Not their best.
