Lilja (1685) - 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.

Leini (841) - SWEDEN - FEB 3, 2013
500ml bottle. Dark brown with some yellow tones. White foamy crown with a dash of brown. Sweet and fruity flavor with elements of wort bread, citrus and spices. Medium, bitter aftertaste with orange peel and burnt bread. Medium carbonation with small, sparkling bubbles. Medium body. Nice x-mas brew from Jämtlands.
