mzaar (1614) - Varberg, SWEDEN - NOV 20, 2012
Guldfärgad öl med vitt skum. Smörkola, karamell, frukt och bär i aromen. Mycket besk smak. Det riktigt drar i smaklökarna. Smörkola, grape, citrus och bär hittas. Några julkryddor hittas dock inte; att sälja detta som julöl är i det närmaste falsk marknadsföring. Fast med det sagt: mycket trevlig öl!

Fruity, malty taste with note of apricots, orange, bread, citrus peel, a soft and chewy malt character and fresh floral/citric hops in a finish with a certain bitterness. Medium body, with a slight sweetness. Fresh and tasty, could easily drink this all year round. Nice one.

Tjoxen (167) - SWEDEN - NOV 23, 2012
Pours clear copper with lasting white head. Aroma of ripe fruits, orange peal, esters (strawberry) and hops. Taste is dry and bitter with grape fruit, some berries. Low carbonation. I have to say the same as my swedish friends. This is nothing for the christmas dinner, but its good thanks to the bitterness. I find now spices or anything that reminds me of christmas.
