Veer (362) - Landskrona, SWEDEN - DEC 9, 2006
Aroma: nice, fruity with hints of red apples, cloudberry, cinnamon, several different malts. Fruity, fresh hops accompany the malts superbly. Burnt sugar, coconut (vaguely), liquorice, cream & almonds.
Appearance: pale beige head that fizzes away in a matter of seconds, leaving as suspect looking island in the middle. Rusty red brown, clear colour.
Flavour: initial dry spicyness - lovely. Apparent hop bitterness w/ sourish-sweet malt, caramel/hop aftertaste. Overall very balanced, fruity and refreshing. Noticable alcohol.
Palate: really nice considering the high co2. Full-bodied, smooth yet crisp.

jacobwennbom (352) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - NOV 23, 2007
UPDATED: DEC 27, 2010 A bit flat, sweet and with notes of chocolate. That is how I would describe the taste of this x-mas brew. Not as much cascade as I had expected, which is not necissarily a bad thing.

Pours dark brown with a off-white head. A lot of raisins, figs along with a rich caramel base with fudge and chocolate. A light hoppy touch of pine and red berries and a medium bitter ending.

mybestfriend (263) - Gothenburg, SWEDEN - MAR 13, 2008
2007 bottle. Pours a reddish brown colour with a beige head. Winter spices and hoppy on the nose - also some sweet liquorice, dried fruits and coffee. Smooth mouthfeel but a bit watery. Some sweetness. Some roasted and earthy notes - liquorice, spices and coffee. The finish is a bit thin with some bitterness. I was a bit disappointed with this one.

Gorgosh (256) - - NOV 30, 2012
Jämtlands julöl är en av anleningarna till att vuxna kan ha det minst lika roligt som barn på julafton. Perfekt balanserad och går att njuta av avsevärt mycket längre än julklappar och Kalle Anka.
