COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Julefred er eit mørkt koparfarga øl i skotsk stil. Ølet har moderate mengder humle for å gje rom for ein rik maltsmak med karamell og litt rosintonar. Det er bryggja spesielt med tanke på salta og tørka julemat, men høver óg som sjelevarmar for ein frossen skrott.

Julefred er korkje pasteurisert eller filtrert og har difor gjærrestar på botnen. Bør lagrast ståande og serverast ved 10-12 grader C. Lat gjæra bli att på flaska.

Pours a clear brown with an inch of offwhite head. Fruity yeast notes on a malty background. Some toast and bready notes as well. Taste is mellow, moderate malty with a toasty, bready touch. Somewhat lacking in body, but since its the "light" version that was sort of expected. Decent.

75cl bottle from Meny Kolsås. Pours caramel brown to amber with an off-white head. Malty aroma with fruity and mildly bready and roasty notes, moderate caramel. Medium sweet with mild roasty flavours and a nice bitterness in the finish. Easy to drink and quite flavourful. One of the nicest shop strenght Christmas beers in Norway in my opinion.

IPAgutten79 (766) - Skui, NORWAY - DEC 6, 2013
Fra butikk, denne savner fyldigheten til storebror fra polet. Når ikke opp, blir for tynn og smakløs, men greit alternativ fra butikk.

Beer5000 (5052) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAY 12, 2013
750 ml bottle. Slightly unclear reddish brown body with a dense beige head. Aroma has malt, caramel, dry fruit and cellar notes. Flavor is a bit mild malty, hint of caramel, toast and moderate bitterness. Medium body and moderate aftertaste. Decent, but a bit straight forward British brown ale/bitter style ale.

oh6gdx (22531) - Vasa, FINLAND - MAR 21, 2013
Bottled (shared by omhper, thanks!). Amber colour, small off-white fluffy/bubbly head. Aroma is fruity, a bit wooden, resiny and sappy with quite strong caramel notes. Flavour is wooden, mildly toasted toffee, some caramel and a bit fruity as well. Pleasantly bitter flavour.

Nice aroma of fruits and nuts and chocolate - known as the norwegian milk chocolate "Fruktnøtt". Brown color, and cloudy. Really soft and mild and good.
