A great christmas beer. Drier than usual but this just adds to the overall drinkability.

omhper (19376) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - JAN 17, 2002
Ruby coloured. A rather dry, malt dominated and unusually complex lager. Loads of subtle flavours, flowery hop aroma, and a well balanced bitterness.

rarbring (1371) - Linköping, SWEDEN - DEC 5, 2012
Aroma: The smell is malty with dried fruits, which is well reflected in the taste which has tones of apricots, caramel and a malty richness.
Appearance: A dark amber beer with a light rich beige head the leaves much on the glass.
Taste: A nice bitter tone complemented with acid.
Palate: Good envigouring carbonation.
Overall: Not as sweet as most traditional "julöl".
Note: bottle Reviewed 2009-12-27.

Hildigöltur (5103) - København, DENMARK - DEC 23, 2002
[Draught, Den Tatoverede Enke, Copenhagen, 2002] This is a very good bottom fermented brew. Very malty and full bodied. Slightly spicy and fruity and rather complex. I was lucky to try the draught version of this brew. All of this beer is bottled except for six barrels which was made available on draught. Den Tatoverede Enke in Copenhagen got one barrel.

JorisPPattyn (7910) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - DEC 16, 2004
Fully ruby red, cola-like carbonation to amber-yellow head, fast gone. Fruity (dark fruit as plums) and bread-malty nose, Bocklike. Sweetish, liquorice. Bready taste, blueberry, tobacco, little hint of piney hops, but mostly dark, sweet malts. Rather thin, watery body. Carbonation gets fast exhausted. Lets one down after some time, after a very good start. German character, Scandinavian MF.

<i>Bottle (50 cl) from Systembolaget</i>. Clear reddish brown, rich beige bitter head. Malty aroma with soffe roasted chocolate notes. Light to medium bodied, very soft but lively carbonation. Quite dry with low to moderate bitterness. Close to being very good, but something is lacking.
