330ml with pinnekjĝtt@Mother-in-laws, 28.Dec.2012
Red-brown body with tiny head. Sweet prunes, caramel, dates nose. Sweet, but balanced. A bit better in itself than Mack Juleĝl, but Mack was better with pinnekjĝtt.

Not the best christmas beer I know. A tiny hint of caramel, the rest isnt christmassy at all, no spices or malty notes. Quite refreshing, and not thin at all.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.

2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Brewed in two versions for the norwegian market. One at 4,5% and one at 6,5%. Both comes in slightly different verions each year. Aass Juleĝl is one of the better norwegian Juleĝl. But only the stronges version is drinkable. The 4,5% version is the 6,5 plus water. A juleĝl should be on the sweet side, with some spice character. One excellent german alternative: Rostock Hansebrau.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tasted from the bottle, on 12/01/2013.
Pours of amazing ruby brown, with a healthy foam, which has an ok retention.
Aroma is of candy sugar, spices, mostly cloves and coriander, with faint honey notes in the end.
Taste is overly sweet, honey character dominates, topped with different spices.
Aftertaste is a bit tart.
Worth to try.
