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

Aass Juleĝl Premium er et overgjĉret sterkĝl som passer utmerket til julens tradisjonelle retter, eller som kun nytes for kosens skyld. Den gode smaken ligger i ĝlets styrke. Fargen er mĝrk brun. Svĉrt rik maltduft med aromaer av julens krydder. Flott fyldig smak med noe sĝdmepreget anslag av mĝrk sjokolade. Avsluttes med en behagelig bitterhet.

yngwie (14170) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - DEC 30, 2008
Bottle. Immediately after popping the cap, a heavy aroma of malty sweetness, some roasted malt and dried fruits escapes the bottle. It pours a nice ruby copper body, clear, with a small, firm beige head. Prunes, sultana raisins, dark grapes, caramel and some alcohol fill in the blanks in the aroma. It’s quite effervescent, full-bodied and with a pleasant warmth from the alcohol. The flavor has roasted malt, raisins and prunes, fruity and slightly piney hops and some alcohol. As the beers warms up, some mocha occurs. The finish has a nice lasting bitterness to balance the sweetness. A quite complex beer that is in the same league as Julebokk from their competitor Ringnes. It’s maybe a bit evident on the higher alcohols, but really pleasant and works nicely as a by-the-fire beer, or with some nuts and a slice of cheese. Don’t let it get too warm, as some notes of cooked vegetables then shows up. (081212)

Koelschtrinker (11070) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUN 3, 2011
Würziger Malzantrunk, der eine nicht unerhebliche Süße beinhaltet. Diese ist aber wohl dosiert und ergänzt das stetig steigende Malz, das weich bleibt und im Verlauf spritzige Schokoladennoten bildet. Wenig herb, nun sehr schokoladig. Die Süße zeigt nun, dass sie vom Alkohol abstammt, dieser verzieht sich aber wieder schnell und gibt getreeidige Beinoten ab. Kräuter, Orange, dezent nach Kaffee. Gut! 8/10/12/11/7/10
