DraftDodger (731) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - DEC 29, 2015
Copenhagen 29/12 2015. 50 cl bottle from SuperBrugsen. Pours clear light copper brown with big white head. Settles as thin layer of foam. Aroma is sweetish with caramel, wet cardboard and some medium bitter notes. But the most distinctive odeur is a overwhelming skunky smell. Low carbonation and watery palate. Taste is sweet caramel, burnt sugar and a lot of skunkiness. I have never been very impressed with the "5 gaarde". Their Christmas beer have done nothing to change that disposition.

Light amber color with little white head. The aroma is a bit malty. But the hops bitterness is (sadly) not so perceptible. Overall a bit too normal for the price for the 50 cl bottle.

Ikke megen jul har- mere standard pilsner, som ikke tør meget. Noget konsum-agtigt ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

tbonde (283) - DENMARK - NOV 30, 2015
50 cl bottle@ home in Trappist glass@approx 9 degrees C. Pours orange-brown with off white head with sufficient retention. Faint aroma dominated by caramel and roasted malt with a slight fruitiness. Taste very light again dominated by the malts with just a little fruitiness. Hardly any hops present and the malty aftertaste quickly disappears without a trace of bitterness. Thin texture and mouthfeel adds up to a completely uninteresting, but drinkable beer with very little in the way of Christmas spices or such.

(2) Not worth trying. Not that intersting. There is absolutely no christmas in this beer - it might just be me - but there needs balance and something that makes me think christmas.

Holmen1 (4126) - Stavanger, NORWAY - FEB 15, 2015
Nå selger de juleøl til halv pris på Imra (Nørrebro runddel), et eksempel til, etterfølgelse! Vakker rødlig mahogny med højt beige filmskum. Myk munnfylde, og smaken er preget av malt og en myk bærprofil. Mild og god ettersmak. Et behagelig øl helt uten personlighet. Competent but utterly forgettable.
