Danish: Hemmeligheden bag en god juleøl er at begrænse sig – der er så mange muligheder for at komme smag i brygget, at man hurtigt kan komme for meget af julens krydderier i. ‘The Pros and Cons of Christmas’ er en balanceret Brown Ale, med julen bagerst på tungen og den gode, runde Ale-smag forrest, hjulpet godt på vej af amerikanske og engelske humletyper, samt vores hjemmelavede maltsirup der er karamelliseret i 10 timer.
Indeholder: Byg- og hvedemalt, umaltet byg, vand, humle, gær og julekrydderier.

Beer5000 (5900) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - SEP 30, 2010
Sampled @ Copenhagen Beer Festival 2010. Hazy, dark brown body with a medium off-white head. Aroma is slightly spicy, light roasted malt and dry fruit. Flavor is malt, caramel, some chocolate, dry fruit and balanced bitter. It’s quite straightforward, but very nice, balanced and well made. I just really, really like this one.

rarbring (2259) - Linköping, SWEDEN - JAN 1, 2013
Aroma: Smelling of bread, apple, oranges, nuts and hay.
Appearance: A hazy brown colored beer. A off-white head with small lacing and some curtains.
Taste: Tasting sweet dark bread, toast, orange marmalade and red apple peel.
Palate: Medium low carbonation, a coarse texture. A medium body with a long dry finish.
Overall: Not bad at all, very much of both malt and hops. Balanced.
Note: Bottle 500 ml. (Vintage 2011) Reviewed 2013-01-01.

jamaty (1867) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUN 10, 2015
Marrón muy oscura, opaca, sin espuma. Marcado aroma a café y cacao. Cuerpo moderado y carbonatación media. Excelente en boca, muy agradable, mezclando bien un ligero toque de dulce caramelo, toffe, con el predominante seco y amargo de café y de chocolate. El postgusto, muy duradero va alternando ambos, en un conjunto fascinante.

Faurschou (7) - DENMARK - NOV 16, 2009 does not count
A "pleseant" and soft structure with the real taste of X-mas brewed by a "2-man" brewery in Denmark. First beer from these guys - well done a very good beginning.
