Danish: Juleøllet har sin sikre plads blandt de danske juletraditioner. Juleøllet har alle dage været kraftigere øl end hverdagsøllet – Hornbeer Juleøl er ingen undtagelse. Den holder lige knapt sine 9 pct alkohol. Vi har i år valgt at brygge vores juleøl efter belgisk forbillede. Der er anvendt gær fra belgisk trappistøl og lyse og mørke malte, så øllet fremstår med en let karamelsmag og lidt brændte noter. Målet har været, at gøre vores juleøl rigtigt velegnet til den danske julemad. Og så har vi lige krydret den med lidt med enebær, en smule anis og andet godt – det er jo jul !

Defreni (2314) - Husum, DENMARK - DEC 25, 2013
Flaske: Brunrød let diset øl med et fint skumhoved. Duften er klassisk dansk-belgisk juleøl med en god gærnote og en del anis i duften. Smagen er næsten for domineret af anis, men et godt humlebid gør at øllen er balanceret. Klassisk dansk juleøl uden nogle dikkedarer.

mikkellund42 (490) - DENMARK - DEC 13, 2013
Bottle. Pours murky brownish black with small light brown head. Aroma is rye bread, sour dough, Vegemite and "øllebrød". Taste is initial very sweet then medium acidic and light bitter. Body is milky to oily with soft sparkling carbonation. Finish is long and sweet with notes of sugar, lactose, fudge, rye bread, dough, cinnamon, cocoa, light orange and sweet grapefruit, overripe plum, hints of nuts and mint. Very sweet but it’s not nauseating - has some resemblance to milk stouts. Surprisingly good and different than your average Christmas ale!
