COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Danish: “…rør blot ikke ved min gamle jul..” sådan hører vi hvert år, Bo Bendixen synge fra “Sikke en voldsom trængsel og alarm” Sådan er det også med juleøllet. Det har sin plads blandt mange andre tradtioner. Juleøllet har alle dage været kraftigere øl end hverdagsøllet – Hornbeer Juleøl er ingen undtagelse. Den holder sine 7½ pct. Vi har i år valgt at brygge vores juleøl efter belgisk forbillede. Der er anvendt gær fra belgisk trappistøl, og der er krydret ganske lidt. Der er smag er frugter, karamel og jul. Vi tillader os at citere Carsten Bertelsen fra bogen 24 juleøl. “Juleøl skal tages alvorligt, ellers ka’ det være det samme. For så kan vi lige så godt drikke den øl, som vi plejer i hverdagen. Vore forfædre indviede det godt indbryggede og krydrede juleøl med højtid, så derfor må velsmag og godt håndværk – i det mindste – være vor tids offer til guderne” Vi er helt enige i synspunktet: stå vagt om en god tradition, nemlig den gode juleøl.

Forsberg_dk (258) - DENMARK - DEC 9, 2010
50 cl bottle, pours dark with pretty much no head, aroma of yeast, licorice, spices, caramel and dark fruit, taste follows the nose, smooth mouthfeel, fairly weak finish, pleasant but boring.

fonefan (36036) - VestJylland, DENMARK - DEC 8, 2010

Bottle 500ml.

Unclear medium to dark orange amber color with a small to average, frothy - fizzy and open, fair lacing, fully diminishing, off-white head. Aroma is moderate to heavy malty, caramel, spicy, moderate yeasty, fruity, anis, a mess IMO. Flavor is moderate to heavy sweet and bitter with a long duration, spicy bitter, very messy more like a home brews version of a belgium xmas beer. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft. [20101207]

jesperhammer (3050) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - NOV 21, 2010
20-NOV-2010, bottle @Ekstra Bladets Juleølssmagning. Light brown color, slightly unclear. Very yeasty spicey nose. Sweet, but not overly sweet. Perfect belgian inspired X-mas brew. This is definately better than previous years...and certainly cleaner:-)

Rune (8497) - Tromsø, NORWAY - NOV 19, 2010
500ml bottle shared with Skinnyviking. Nice label design, as always with the bottles from Hornbeer. The content has a unclear brownish body colour topped by a creamy, beige head. Malt-spicy aroma. Sweet caramel in flavour mixed with spices and herbal dryness. Medium bodied. Rather unvaried and lacks the Yuletide spirit (hotel room, Copenhagen 07.11.2010).

Papsoe (25083) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - NOV 15, 2010
On tap. Hazy, dark orangey brown with a beige head. Sweetish aroma of brown sugar, Christmas spices and Belgian yeast. Full-bodied, sweet caramel, coriander, star aniseed and again Belgian yeast. Hardly any hops to balance the sticky sweetness. Many would probably consider this a "true" Christmas beer - to me it’s just a sticky mess really. 091110
