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.

Lilja (2608) - Malmö, SWEDEN - DEC 11, 2012
UPDATED: APR 15, 2013 En frisk och lagom söt julöl. Smak och doft av malt, torkad frukt, lätt kolsyrad och besk. Välbalanserad. Har provat denna öl sedan 2006, står sig gott.

UPDATED: DEC 18, 2005 Rerate - previously sampled at the RBESP 2004, but it had a hard time to push through in that line-up, I was happy to be able to try it again
Red brown, tanned creamy head. Roasted notes, nut , chocolate, minerally strawberry. Slightly cardboardy bready malt. Good body, mellow mouthfeel. Milk chocolate and nut aftertaste. Vey nice harmonious brew.

anchr (18) - Trondheim, NORWAY - MAY 28, 2010
Great malty character. Somewhat sweet, bready, spicy, and with a large body and decent light brown head - all of which fits the Christmas beer style. Though, can be slightly overpowering due to its full-bodied sweetness: should be drunk to food, not as a stand-alone. Some bitterness that lingers on, and a reminiscence of strong Scottish ale. Nice dark brownish-red color. Good to great-ish, but far from extreme.
