Thanks to my daddy-inlaw for this random tick. Pour is clear hazelnutty brown, with a slightly frothy cream-white head. Aroma of hay, slight nutskin, slight spices, slight grass. The taste is pretty bitter, too bitter to be a Christmas beer to me. Average body, with a fizzy carbonation.

Desverger (6997) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - NOV 10, 2013
Bottle from Brugsen - amber pour with small off-white head. Sweet malts, some weak caramel/toffee, slightly watery, bit sweet overall, not one of the better Julebryg’s out there this year to me.

NosirIwont (2266) - Frederikssund, DENMARK - JUN 29, 2013
Bottle. 6.2%. Best before 19.09.13. Pours a clear, deep golden amber with a big yellowish/tan head. Good lacing. Sweet aroma; malt, caramel and cereals with a light metallic overtone. A wee bit cloying. Flavour is malty with dark fruit notes, a light citrusy bitter hop note and a dusty overtone, bordering cardboard. Remote metallic note as it warms. Sweet, malty finish with a mild alcohol burn and a light apple note. Overall okay, if a bit cloying; the finish is the better part. 29.06.13.

Aniela (4207) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JUN 15, 2013
Bottle. Dark amber beer with a small offwhite head. Hoppy aroma. Fruity and hoppy flavour. Feels a bit thin and boring..

Bov (11500) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - MAY 23, 2013
courtesy of Antonio Ruiz - pours a clear red-amber beer with a poor head retention; spicy aroma with notes of malt and caramel; a good malt backbone and lively palate; pretty bitter and with a dry and long spicy and fruity finish; slightly burning with notes of chewy malts

mikkellund42 (730) - DENMARK - DEC 4, 2012
Bottle. Pours clear amber with small offwhite head. Aroma is caramel, citrus and soap. Taste is light bitter and light umami. Body is light oily and dry with average carbonation. Finish is short and dry with notes of caramel and some hops. Rather boring with no associations of Christmas (you wonder why it is called a Christmas brew?).

01-DEC-2012, bottle @Gerts julefrokost. Clear golden with lasting off-white head. Sweet, spice, malt, butter, vegetables, faulty. A little hops on top of the malty caramel stuff. Nah!
