COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Danish: Ny humlet juleøl. Hvis du på et tidspunkt synes, at du har fået tilstrækkeligt af den søde juleøl, julegodterne og de andre ting vi går og nyder i julen, så skal du prøve en Hornbeer Julehumle. Det er ikke en voldsomt humlet øl, men en mild IPA der er godt tørhumlet. Det er derfor en meget forfriskende øl, der gør rigtigt godt som en afveksling til den mere traditionelle juleøl.
Humle er det gode modspil til den kraftige mad, og du kunne jo prøve med et glas Julehumle juleaften til anden eller flæskestegen. Hvis du er typen der traver omkring juletræet og afsynger 10 julesange – herunder alle vers i “Et barn er født i Betlehem”, – så vil en kold Julehumle være en lise for sjælen efter alle strabadserne.

Holmen1 (1984) - Stavanger, NORWAY - MAY 10, 2013
Flaske hos Ole Anders mai-13: uklar brunfarge med nokså beskjedent gardinskum. Aroma har en toffeeaktig sødme. Mildt humlet. Smaksrikdom og balanse som gjør at jeg gjerne skulle hatt en av denne til julemaden.

Cunningham (4000) - Halden, NORWAY - MAR 1, 2013

Appearance: Cloudy brownish amber color with a off white head. Ok lacing.
Aroma: Caramel malty, fruity and a bit grape hoppy.
Palate: Medium body. Slightly sweet and a fine bitterness. Soft carbonation.
Taste: Unusual dominant caramel malty taste for an IPA. Mixed with a nice fruity and hoppy flavor.
Overall impression: At last there is some tasty nice new Christmas beer coming up. Really tired of the usual dunkler bock. Looking forward to next Christmas and another Julehumle!
Personal stats: Bottle from Vinmonopolet Oslo - Vika in Oslo, Norway.

n0mel (250) - FINLAND - JAN 20, 2013
31.12.12. Bottle. Aroma is a strong American hops; very nice. Tastes good, a fruity and bitter combo. Probably not the best winter beer, but I’m a fan of these kinds of IPAs.

k0mpsa (937) - Järvenpää, FINLAND - JAN 19, 2013

Foffern (1061) - Bodø, NORWAY - JAN 13, 2013
Bottle at home. Pours a hazy dark orange colour with a off-white creamy medium head. The aroma is both spicy and fruity with hops, peach, mango, honeydew melon and some citrus. Well-balanced. The flavour contains more hops, grapefruit, pine and herbs. Has a soft and slick mouthfeel, and a medium bitterness. A great and balanced IPA.

Linnet (1029) - Umeå, SWEDEN - JAN 5, 2013
Ar: Burst of tropical fruits, pineapple, mango, citrus, resin, grapefruit, strawberries, sweet malts, just lovely! Ap: dark amber colour, big beige head, lacing. T: aroma Wrote checks that the taste can’t fullfill, grapefruit, resin, medium bitterness for the style, caramel, ABV well hidden, dangerously easy to drink. P: low carbonation, medium fullness. T: solid, but if the flavour had matched the nose, this would have been a slam dunk.
