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.

Some samples from a 0.75l bottle @ Kai-Sindre’s (InBreak) wedding. This one pours a deep almost murky brown body with a lasting light tanned creamy head. Aroma has lots of dry cocoa, some chocolate malts and it’s lightly sweet. Really nice actually. Lively carbonation, it has a thin and somewhat watery mouthfeel and it’s quite light-bodied. Flavors are also dominated by that dry chocolate/cocoa found in the aroma, light yeast and it ends with some nice mild nutty flavors. Dry and kinda lasting aftertaste. Yeah, I quite liked this one, although it’s not your "standard" Christmas ale. Did suffer a bit on the palate because of only the ABV 4.7%, so I’m really looking forward to trying it’s big brother!

yngwie (14008) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUN 29, 2011
Bottle, 75cl. A gusher, producing an unclear, brown body and a foamy, two-finger head. Pleasant nose with roased malts, some chocolate and coffee and notes of hops. Big, malty flavor with chocolate, roasted malts and a little bitterness trying to bring balance. Not that it’s balanced, but it’s very tasty anyway. Full-bodied and nicely carbonated. A pleasant and tasteful beer indeed, but it didn’t bring thoughts of Christmas. Not that I will refrain from drinking it just because of that. 110311
