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.

GreatDane (101) - Skævinge, - JAN 23, 2005
A Christmas Beer unlike most other Danish Christmas Beer. Dark Amber Brown color, with a long lasting head. A taste of toffee in the beginning turning into a light bitter anise taste.

Nevalainen (393) - FINLAND - DEC 27, 2015
Hazy amber color with tall creamy head. Aroma of caramel, anis, christmas. Taste is medium sweet with alcohol and licorice notes. Nice strong beer, which is well balanced with alcohol and spicies.

Flaske. Her er så endelig en juleøl, der faktisk smager af jul. God mørk øl med julekrydderier. Tak.

Oelbas (255) - DENMARK - DEC 11, 2015
Lidt uklar rødbrun med holdbart, cremebrunt groft skum. Duft med alkohol, svedsker, malt og kraftig sødme. Smagen er meget blød og fyldig med mørk malt, lakrids og tørret frugt. Kraftig men ikke påtrængende sødme der fortsætter i eftersmagen. Næsten ingen bitterhed.

TorbenJensen (1408) - Valby, DENMARK - SEP 6, 2015
Lovely red-brown ale. It smells not so violent, but the taste is incredibly rich and filling. Good spicy flavors of lots of things, among cloves. Fine malt rich caramel notes and a sufficiently long-lasting hop bitterness.

DraftDodger (724) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - FEB 18, 2015
Copenhagen 20/11 2014. 63 cl bottle from Netto. Pours reddish brown with yellowish head. Subsides slowly. Aroma is distinct and malty with some overripe fruit, caramel and alcohol. Quite soft carbonation. Taste follows the nose. Dark and rich with very distinct notes of alcohol. It's not a thirst quencher.

Flavor is slightly sweet at the beggining, ripe fruit, spiced notes mainly anise and coriander, alcohol hidden by candy notes. Slightly bitterness in the final with yeasty and caramelish notes.

gorkogrlo (276) - Zagreb, CROATIA - NOV 26, 2014
Bottle 0.63 l, bottled: 2014. Dark red color. Medium head. In nose cherry, rum, dust. Very strong smell, something liquor/prosecco like. In flavor again rum, dust, dark fruits, alcohol. Complex. Sweet. Probably medium body. Overall: good beer, but maybe too much spices. Too alcoholic off flavors also.
