Vi og våre kokkevenner har vært på jakt etter den beste smakskombinasjonen tilpasset norsk julemat. Smaken har vi hentet i villmarken rundt Atna, og mattradisjonene passer vi på sammen med deg. Øl til julemat er brygget på maltsortene Pale Ale, Munchner, Crafa, Caramunich og Hvete. Humlesortene Admiral og Amarillo. Amerikansk lagergjær. Ølet er ikke filtrert eller pasteurisert, og du vil oppleve at det har en større smaksrikdom enn vanlig industriøl. Oppbevar flasken stående. Lagres ølet kaldt og mørkt vil det fortsette å utvikle seg, gjærrestene på bunnen er en naturlig del av denne prosessen. Server ølet ved 6-8 C, og la det få bygge en skumtopp i glasset.

Cunningham (6052) - Halden, NORWAY - DEC 19, 2011

tfredvik (1501) - Oslo, NORWAY - DEC 16, 2011
What? No aroma? How is that even possible? Ok, one more sniff… Well, I get some extremely faint malty notes, so this is probably a beer. I pour the odourless liquid into my glass, and find a medium brown body topped with a small, very short-lived head that ends up as a thin film. On the bottom of the glass there are big lumps of yeast. Ouch. The taste is almost as vague as the aroma: light sweet and light bitter. The flavours are, believe it or not, rather faint. I get mostly yeast and some citric notes. Not bad, but certainly a bit strange. All the yeast also gives a slightly metallic feel. Sorry Atna, I’m certainly not letting this accompany my christmas food.
[33 cl bottle, from Meny Carl Berner, Oslo]

Mezcalmannen (395)
- Oslo, NORWAY - SEP 26, 2011
UPDATED: OCT 2, 2011 Caramel in the aroma and taste. Light on the palate, abrupt finish. Dark amber colour, almost red. White to tan head that disappears quickly. I drank this about 10 months after bottling, that might explain my lack of enthusiasm for the brew. Even though it was well within the expiration date, by a couple of months. (33 cl bottle)

31.05.2011. 0,33l Bottle. Safari Lagunen, Bergen. Brown colour with off-white head. Hazy unclear beer. Aroma is malty with malt sweetness. There is also some grassy hops and some dry bitterness at the end. Fairly good beer this one.

abemorsten (3378) - Mosterøy, NORWAY - MAY 10, 2011
Shared bottle at Cardinal. Hazy orange with a creamy, light brown film. Roasted malts and pine on the nose. Bland first impression. Light to medium body. Acidic and metallic mouth.

gunnfryd (13324) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAR 3, 2011
Bottle. Brown colour with a beige head. Aroma is caramel, malt, hay. Flavour is caramel, hop, malt, fruit, hay. Medium body. A little bit boring.

Beer5000 (5310) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - FEB 26, 2011
330 ml bottle. Nice amber body with a medium, stable tan head. A bit weak aroma of caramel malt. Flavor is light caramel malt, moderate bitter with a faint hint of roast. A thin body with a short aftertaste. A bit plain in flavor, not much taste, but no faults and a decent thirst-quencher.

Odland (137) - NORWAY - FEB 19, 2011
Bottle from Vaaland, Bryne. Pours amber with moderate foam. A watered down malted flavor with a bitter finish. Is there Amarillo in here? Really? Where? In Atnas defense, it seems really hard to make a decent Christmas beer under 4.7ABV.

Palme (3603) - Bergen, NORWAY - DEC 14, 2010
0.33l bottle. Pours a hazy brownish body with a thin side-hanging foam. Fresh nose with lots of malts, some berries. Lively carbonation, roasted chocolate malts, long aftertaste. Chocolate, smokey, quite different, somewhat watery and to light bodied. Could work with food, not that super alone.. Some hidden hops comes forward in the ending.

Ungstrup (31462) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - DEC 8, 2010
Bottled. A hazy red beer with a thin beige head. The aroma has notes of vanilla. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt and caramel, leading to a dry finish. The mouthfeel is thin and carbonated. Sorry, I’d not choose to drink this with my Christmas dinner.
