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.

DroolYeast (275) - Aalborg, DENMARK - NOV 14, 2013
Tap @ The Cockney Pub. Great aroma of hops. Citrus, pine. Pours cloudy amber. Off-white head, small. Lasting of a very! small head. Strong taste of hops and bitterness. Also same as aroma. Bitter and sweetness in the end. Lasting bitterness. Very good IPA, but I can’t see the Christmas in this.

JanLaursen (3227) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - NOV 8, 2013
Flaske, 50 cl. Let uklar og ravfarvet øl med en lille hvid film på toppen. Humlet næse, lidt udefinerbar, men noter af citrus og gran. Mild sødme, mild bitterhed. Fragant, let. Ok, stilfærdig. Mer pale ale end IPA. Ikke særlig julet.

500 ml bottle, kindly shared by abemorsten. ABV is 6%. Brown colour, moderate off-white head. Pleasant aroma of butterscotch, toffee and caramel - less noticeable hops. The flavour is well balanced between the malts and hops, medium bitter finsh.

Holmen1 (2716) - 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 (4782) - 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.
