2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Even though a seasonal, this christmas ale wins upon cellaring for one or two years. Drink it young, and it’s slightly boring and to the sweeter side, drink a year after it’s a good and somewhat complex bitter ale with hints of cinnamon, lemon and ginger. It’s supposed to accombany food, and goes well with traditional danish lunch like hering, pickled gherkins, apple-bacon and liver pate. Due to the slight oily feel, it gets too much on it’s own.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
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.

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.
