I am happy to report that Jubelale is back for the 20th year and still tasting great. I was able to land a first batch sixer from Johnís Market, and although the label has certainly been better in years past, the beer stills holds its status as a superior Northwest winter ale. Jubelale is a staple winter beer, and I look forward to enjoying it as the weather gets colder!!!

Had this beer on 1/2/2006. Aroma is a sweet roasted malt scent. Color is a deep orange brown with good carbonation and nice head. Taste is rich, roasted and bitter. Starting with a medium body goes down with a sharp feel. Finish comes out of this sharp feel with a malty flavor that is backed by a full bitterness then leaves you with a warm feel. Overall I think its a nice Winter brew but not as balanced as I like a beer.

A little over popular if you ask me. Donít get me wrong I like this very flavorful big winter warmer, and it does give you what you ask for. But I find that in order for me to deem something festive I have to be able to drink more than one of them...and I havenít wanted a second Jubel yet. Good first beer of the winter.

GeneralGao (3614) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - AUG 22, 2007
12 oz bottle. 2006 vintage. Poured a hazy brown color with orange highlights. Attractive aroma of molasses, plum, and raisin. Slightly sweet on the tongue and medium bodied. Tasted of light molasses, toffee, crushed pine needles, and dark fruits. Well suited for colder months.

Bottled. Cloudy mahogany body with a thin, tan head that faded out about 1/2-way through--no lace. Body was medium-fullish with lots of light, foamy carbonation, that faded away with the head. Lightly dry finish and some watery character. Aroma was big malts and alcohol with a lot of toffee and caramel, and some spicy hops. Flavor was a wallop of toffee and toasted malts, with some alcohol and a surprisingly bitter, hoppy finish. Enjoyed drinking it. Flavor is very good.

2006 vintage. Pours to a deep mahogany/garnet body with a tall and lasting foamy tan head. Awesome lacing. The aroma is nutty and is strong with wreaths and dusty earthy spices. The flavor is spicy with nutmeg and mace and a dash of Chinese 5 spice. Light pine hops, spruce, and nuts. The palate is spicy with a lingering bitterness and earthiness. Really quite festive.

Geez, they describe this as English?? Orange rind, mint, pine and egg aroma which reminded me of something from Anchor, plus spicy, puddingy malt. Lots of thick and sweet crystal malt toffee but malt flavour is otherwise a touch hollow It doesnít matter too much because itís swamped with fantastic hop flavour and quite a strong bitterness which is perhaps a little rough. Very, very nice. Didnít expect to like this one nearly as much as I did, and I could definitely see myself downing a few of these at Christmas. You should be able to figure out where I got this from by now.

This is a good malty brew that even this certified hop-head can appreciate. It has a good look to it, having a reddish brown body with a tall & creamy beige head. Its aroma is full of malt, roasted & toasted, sweet with toffee, and balanced with a light floral hopping. The flavor is rich and tasty, malty and having some soft nuts in it. And to make me happy, thereís a solid level of floral and herbal bitterness that intensifies as the drinking progresses. All in all, a well crafted brew.
