COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Julefeiringener en skikk fra Tor og Odins dager. Da Olav den Hellige kristnet landet gikk folk med på å skifte tro, men "Drekka Jol" ville de ikke gi slipp på - samme hvor mange armer Olav Digre kappet av.

djoeye (1206) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JAN 20, 2014
Borg Juleøl 6.5% brown 330ml bottle. Purchased@Vinmonopolet, 2014-January. Beige apricot-ish head. Brown clear body with red tunes. Scents; mild roasted malts, some hops, some dried fruit. Tastes caramel malts with some chocolate and fermented prunes, in a sweet way. Normal and a bit grainy to palate. Ends with chocolate malts and some dry raisins. This Yule-Beer goes well to salty yuletide dinners, as "pinnekjøtt" (salt lamb meat), or just with crispy salted potato flakes "potetgull".
