Jol: i Norge har det helt siden vikingtiden vært en tradisjon "å drikka Jol". Sterkt, maltrikt og gjerne smaksatt øl ble brygget, og drukket som et offer til de norrøne gudene, og for å feire solas tilbakekomst. Vårt juleøl kombinerer gamle og nye tradisjoner, og krydres med kanel og nellik. Jol er et middels fyldig øl som gjerne kan nytes alene, eller med tradisjonell julemat.

Editor’s note: The spiced Christmas beer from Amundsen.

Beer5000 (5319) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAR 31, 2015
500 ml bottle. Unclear amber body with a small off-white head. Aroma has malt, caramel and Christmas spices. Flavor is medium sweet malt, some caramel, unbalanced spicy and some kind of slightly sour and harsh citric zest. A bit light in body and this probably makes the heavy spice mix kind of unbalanced. The hint of sourness actually makes it a bit more interesting, but not sure it’s intended, at least it’s a rather original idea for this kind of beer. This one was nothing close to the best beers from Amundsen.

varanid99 (763) - AUSTRALIA - MAR 1, 2015
Brown, slightly hazy pour with a thin beige head. Slightly spicy, malty, dark fruit aroma. Sweet, christmas cake fruit and spice flavour, a little sourness. Preferred the Mork Jol

ClubGonzo (4903) - Bergen, NORWAY - JAN 31, 2015
Bottle. Pours a dark hazy nut brown body with a large creamy white head. Aroma is band-aids, grains, caramel, banana and hints of brown sugar and clove. Taste is sour grainy tones, caramel, cinnamon, clove and hints of burnt sugar and brown bread. Medium to light body, medium to high carbonation. The spices in this one makes it seem almost infected with astringency and sharpness, compared to the light body and moderate sweetness in general. Not the best of attempts at a spiced Christmas beer from Amundsen.
