Danish: Så er det juletid og dermed også tid til at nyde nogen af de dejlige juleøl som vi plejer. Men i år er der derudover mulighed for at nyde en lokal juleøl fra Frederiksodde haandbryggerlaug. Denne gang har de to fæstningsbryggere valgt at lave en lidt utraditionel juleøl, der i modsætning til de mange stærke juleøl kun ligger på lidt over 5 %. Dette gør at man sagtens kan nyde den uden at blive tung i hovedet. Det er en undergæret øl, der er brygget på pilsner malt, aroma malt, rug malt og hvedemalt, som tilsammen bidrager med en passende maltsødme. Humlen der er brugt til juleøllen er en god blanding af de bedste amerikanske humle sorter. Der er blandt andet brugt de to aromatiske humle sorter Amarillo og Cascade som giver en duft og smag af fyrnåle og citrusfrugter. Årets julebryg er med andre ord en spændende sammensætning mellem de søde elementer fra malten og den amerikanske humle som udover den gode smag giver den en kraftig bitterhed, som modspil til den gode julemad. Motivet på årets julebryg, er i modsætning til de andre øl fra Frederiksodde Haandbryggerlaug, ikke fra Fredericia, men er derimod tegnet af den danske kunstner, Vilhelm Pedersen (1820-1859) der blev berømt for sine illustrationer til H.C. Andersens eventyr. Tegningen på etiketten stammer netop fra H.C. Andersens eventyr ”Nissen hos spækhøkeren”.

yespr (30902) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - DEC 29, 2007
50 cL bottle, thanks to Myrup. Pours hazy brown with a dense light brown head. Slight soapy fruity/floral hoppy aroma. Flavour is dry hoppy with a fruity note and a sligt soapy note towards the finish. Mellow bitter finish of a quite fruity hops note and little bitterness. Slight liqourice edge in the far finish. Unusual hoppy Christmas brew, I wonder if this was intended as an X-mas brew initially...

Papsoe (25088) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JAN 9, 2008
(Bottle 50 cl) Courtesy of Myrup. Hazy, dark brown, muddy and opaque with a huge sediment and a creamy, beige head. Fresh, citrusy aroma hops in the nose. Medium body with lightly sweet caramel accents and then this distinct citrusy hoppiness that also leaves a dose of bitterness. If it wasn’t bottom fermented I would’ve considered this an APA. Not bad at all, and a very unusual choice for a Christmas beer. 281207

yngwie (13345) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - APR 6, 2008
Bottle, thx to thewolf. Copper-colored, unclear beer with a beige head leaving lacings. Lovely aroma of American hops with pinecones, citrus and grapefruit, as well as a malty sweetness. Nice sweet and malty flavor with caramel and loads of piney and citrusy hops. Quite low on bitterness. Medium body. A bit thin and sure not a Christmas beer in my book, but besides that, it’s a great beer. (080301)

Bottled (vintage 2008)
Deep ruby, a bit murky, off-white head. Woody, American hoppy, a bit sweet nose. Caramelly, Amarillo hoppy flavor, quite mellow mouthfeel, aged quite nicely. Balanced. Not very Christmasy.
