COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Danish: Christmas Ale blev i 2004 kåret som Årets Ølnyhed af Danske Ølentusiaster. Her oplever du en krydret og fyldig juleøl med mange komplekse noter af brændt karamel og nødder og en let syrlighed. Duften bærer moden frugt, lakrids og julekrydderier. I glasset står den rødgyldent mahognifarvet med et råhvidt skum.

English: Star anise and coriander, combined with a Danish ale yeast give the beer a distinct Christmas flavour of ripe fruit, liquorice and spices.

En dejlig krydret juleøl, med en pæn alkoholstyrke. Dejlig ledsager til den danske julemad.

A long lasting pepperish finis indeed. But it is so unfinished, it makes me sick. The brewery states that the beer has been worked on for a year. Well, Carlsberg should have saved on all the ingridients and all the colorfull words on the website and taken the year to brew a dicent christmas beer.

Funny enough, this brew has alot of layers in turms of nose and flavour. Cream, bit spicy, sweet nose and a very warming, pepperish mouth. A long lasting pepperish finis indeed. But it is so unfinished, it makes me sick. The brewery states that the beer has been worked on for a year. Well, Carlsberg should have saved on all the ingridients and all the colorfull words on the website and taken the year to brew a dicent christmas beer.

Nice offwhite creamy head. Cloudy. Cloves and a bit of citrus on the nose. Taste is on the bitter side, with christmas spices. Top 5 in christmas beers

NORSAND (31) - - DEC 21, 2013
2008 vintage (in 66cl bottle). Nose: Wonderful and complex nose with "everything" a Nordic Christmas Ale should have: caramel, liquorice, chocolate, coffee and more. Taste & Palate: Rich, smooth, velvety, malty, yet fresh and lively, semi sweet, wonderfully balanced. Christmas Ale doesn’t become any better than this 5 year old, just different. A beer to remember!

For 9.år i træk = en fantastisk juleøl med masser af krydret smag. Koriander og stjerneanis dominere den komplekse smag. Let sødlig ale med god eftersmag. Passer til det meste julemad. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
