COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Editor’s note: Changed name from Juleøl Premium to Vellagret Juleøl November 2014. The beer formerly known as Juleøl, 6.5%, is now known as Juleøl Premium.

Aass Juleøl Premium er et overgjæret sterkøl som passer utmerket til julens tradisjonelle retter, eller som kun nytes for kosens skyld. Den gode smaken ligger i ølets styrke. Fargen er mørk brun. Svært rik maltduft med aromaer av julens krydder. Flott fyldig smak med noe sødmepreget anslag av mørk sjokolade. Avsluttes med en behagelig bitterhet.

A wonderful surprise from Aass. Brown color, full body, caramel sweetness with some bitterness and a hint of sour. By far the best Norwegian christmas beer I tasted in 2011, and hopefully a sign that the large breweries are finally taking up the challenge from the micro brewers.

tfredvik (1203) - Oslo, NORWAY - DEC 25, 2011
I’m done with the Norwegian christmas lagers I wanted to rate this year, so here’s my first domestic christmas ale! Gorgeous clear dark brown body with a cola tint, supporting a long-lived, light brown head that laces the glass somewhat. Sweet malty aroma with dark fruits (raisin) as expected, but also quite spicy, some alcohol and a touch of liquorice. The taste is medium sweet, with a light to medium bitterness. Very pleasant flavours: (dried) dark fruits, spices, alcohol, herbs and burnt sugar. Medium to full body, oily texture and soft carbonation. Delicious!
[33 cl bottle, from Vinmonopolet Alna, Oslo]

Julen 2011. Pours a dark-dark amber color body with a thin beige head. Aroma of raisins (dried fruit), dates and brown sugar. Sweet taste with a well balanced malty flavour. Quite tasty juleøl from Aass.

Sötmalt åt papphållet. Plommon, söt, klibbig, malt, kola, russin. Allt för obalanserad

gyllenbock (5030) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - DEC 15, 2011
Bottle. Deep, clear red mahogany red color with a creamy head. Better than expected but a bit unbalanced with notes of alcohol both in the aroma and taste. Roasted malt, nuts, caramel and spices. Medium carbonation and body.

Palme (3591) - Bergen, NORWAY - NOV 30, 2011
0.33l bottle. A deep brown body with a red hue and a small bubbly and heavy lacing tan head. The aroma is quite elegant and nice. Sweet with dates, raisins, caramel, chocolate and cocoa hints. Rich mouthfeel with a average carbonation level. A bit sharp on the flavors. Quite obvious and sharp alcohol that dominates the other flavors. Also kinda caramel-metallic, but just a hint. Ends with a nutty-bitter finish and aftertaste. All in all a drinkable Christmas brew from Aass, but I will store a bottle for a year. Suspect it will be better then.

Pours clear deep amber with a off-white head. Aroma has notes of malt, caramel, alcohol and floral hops. Taste is medium sweet and light bitter. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft.
