Danish: En krydret og fyldig juleøl med mange komplekse noter af brændt karamel og nødder samt en let syrlighed. Duften af moden frugt, lakrids og julekrydderier bl.a. koriander og stjerneanis. Farven er mahogni og med råhvidt skum.
Christmas Ale kan nydes til den traditionelle danske julemad og til andre kraftige og tunge måltider. Den serveres ligeledes til braiseret okse- og kalvekød, eller til glaseret og ølmarineret svinekød. Den fine aroma giver nogle harmoniske balancer til maden, som bekræfter det samlede indtryk.

DraftDodger (724) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - DEC 18, 2015
Copenhagen 18/12 2015. 33 cl bottle from Gunnar Madsens Vinhandel. Some decoration from the Christmas tree on the label. Just to get you in the Christmas Mood. Pours lightly hazy copper brown with big off-white head. Settles beautifully as a fat 1 cm thick layer of foam. A lot of lacing. Aroma of sweet caramel with fruity sour notes and some fermentation. Soft carbonation and oily palate. Taste is nicely balanced. Sweet caramel, anis, licorice, fermented fruit. Medium bitterness in aftertaste. Pleasant enough Christmas beer. Presents some Christmas spices without being a parody.

Beer5000 (5469) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAY 26, 2013
500 ml body. A clear amber body with a big, foamy tan head. Aroma has malt, caramel, nuts, toast and some Christmas spices. Flavor is sweet malt, caramel, bread, dry fruit, moderate bitterness and spices in the background. Medium body and decent aftertaste. Quite OK, but rather anonymous and easy to forget.

OleR (4804) - Oslo, NORWAY - JAN 5, 2013
0.5 L bottle from Vinmonopolet Nettbutikk. A layer of big-bubbled beige foam, over a misty red-shaded amber body. Low aroma level for a belgian-styled ale. Bready nutty malts with malt drops and hint of jammed berries. Taste is sugar sweet malty, with prominent anise-seeds, hint of tinned fruits, and an underlying spiced bitterness. Light in body for the style. Spiced sugary-malty endnotes. Drinks ok, but not quite there.

abemorsten (3439) - Mosterøy, NORWAY - NOV 24, 2012
Shared bottle from Vinmonopolet Kvadrat. Small beige head on a deep golden body. Fruity, toasted, aniseed nose. Caramel, bitter, aniseed mouth. Medium to full body. Dry tongue.

alfhansen (35) - Bryne, NORWAY - NOV 10, 2012
50 cl bottle. Slightly underwhelming aroma. Weak head. Taste like I envision a Christmas beer should, but doesn’t last forever. A nice allrounder for the season, but it’s not my choice for Christmas dinner or dessert.

stouby (4186) - Holbæk, DENMARK - NOV 9, 2012
