Nonshaugen (421) - Fetsund, NORWAY - NOV 16, 2015
50 cl can, 2015 vintage. Dark reddish amber, two-finger off-white to tan head, crystal clear, low cabonation. Really a nice looking beer. Not much aroma. Dry and bitter mouthfeel, probably from the hops. It’s a weird one, this beer. It don’t smell much, and it don’t taste much. The only footprint is the dry, fizzy carbonated mouthfeel and a great look. Would probably benefit from beeing stored for a year or so.

Mezcalmannen (395) - Oslo, NORWAY - JAN 15, 2012
A clear dark amber/brown colour, whilst the head is off-white. Moderately malty aroma, taste is also malty, some roast and a slight cardboard feel. (Bottle)

330ml with pinnekjøtt@Mother-in-law’s, 28.Dec.2012 Red-brown body with tiny head. Sweet prunes, caramel, dates nose. Sweet, but balanced. A bit better in itself than Mack Juleøl, but Mack was better with pinnekjøtt.

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.

HansJM (358) - NORWAY - DEC 31, 2000
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 Juleøl is one of the better norwegian ’Juleøl’. But only the stronges version is drinkable. The 4,5% version is the 6,5 plus water. A ’juleøl’ should be on the sweet side, with some spice character. One excellent german alternative: Rostock Hansebrau.

Kasteelfreak (341) - Fallbrook, California, USA - DEC 29, 2002
Nice color. A little skunky with a boring tobacco like aftertaste. Won’t buy again

Bottle. Sweet aroma - honey and some pine. Taste subtle but not with too many tones. Short. Not too nice.
