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”.

Bottle @ Yespr tasting.
[thank you, Myrup]
Pours a light muddy red with a great creamy yellowish head - with super lacing. Aroma is very nicely hoppy, grapefruit and a background of sweet caramel. Super-dry mouthfeel. Flavour i nicely hoppy and includes some spices amongst roasted and caramel maltiness. Super surprise!

JensenTaster (1719) - DENMARK - MAR 4, 2008
(on bottle, thanx to thewolf) Dark colored, beige head. Fruity, minty and a hardpowered maltaroma. There´s an estery and hoppy feel to this, as in US strong ales, even though UK types are used. Even though it has a dark and malted profile, the hops are floating above it all, givin great balance. Warmth up and gets quite peppery in the end. Very nice beer indeed.

yngwie (13214) - 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.

Emil (6066) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - DEC 29, 2007
Bottle. A dark red brown beer with a big beige head. Dusty caramel malt, heavy hopped, pine, peach aroma and taste. Medium body with a dry finish. Even though it´s not realy a X-mas beer but more like a IPA, I´ll drink this for X-mas anytime.

Maria (10133) - Thisted, DENMARK - DEC 24, 2008
It is mahogany-red with a huge, creamy head. The aroma has notes of roasted malt, caramel, fruity hops, citrus and a little raisin. The flavour has a light sweetness and notes of roasted malt, caramel, fruit, different citrus fruits, light raisin, a nice bitterness and a nice caramel foundation. It is an interesting and nice mix of hoppy fruitiness and more traditional, malty sweet Christmas beer.
