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.

Bottle. A gusher. Coffee, caramel, cocoa and Christmas spices. Nice balance, but lacks a little depth and body.

ClubGonzo (3509) - Bergen, NORWAY - JAN 9, 2011
On cask tap @ Nabokjelleren, Bergen. Slightly hazy copper body with medium, enduring off-white head. Nose is roasted malts with hints of hazelnuts and caramel. Taste is sweet caramel malts with some roastiness. Very low carbonation, even for a cask tap. Some floral hints in the aftertaste. An OK Xmas ale, but not too impressive.

larsga (5962) - Oslo, NORWAY - JAN 3, 2011
Gusher. Huge beige head. Hazy reddish amber body with strong carbonation and small floaties. Earthy spicy aroma is sort of flat. Dry-sweetish roasty earthy chocolatey taste with fruity resiny notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, faintly oily mouthfeel. Dry roasty nutty spicy aftertaste with earthy chocolate notes and faint mealy coffee grounds. Nice, but unspectacular. (0.75l bottle, Fenaknoken, Oslo. Batch #42.)

75 cl bottle at home - bought at Vaaland, Bryne. Brygg nr. 42. Brown, mahogny color. Big, foamy, beige color. The beer comes out of the bottle some seconds after opening.

jikvig (269) - NORWAY - DEC 11, 2010
Aroma; Some chocolate, coffee, also some christmas spices; cinnamon and allspice Flavour; Same as the nose, but not that focused.. Focus on the cinnomon/coffee notes. Really like the carbonation aswell Summary; I like it, I just wish there was more! I guess the 6,3% version got more kick to it. A good beer, non the less!

Rune (7349) - Tromsø, NORWAY - DEC 5, 2010
750ml bottle, brygg nr.42, from Fenaknoken. Light brown head that stayed well and left spotty lacing to the glass. Partly cloudy, dark-brown body. Aroma displays chocolate and caramel malts. Fine blended taste of brown malts, raisin hints and dusty hops. Rounded bitter sweet tail. Medium bodied. Pity that it is not more widely distributed in Norway. Would have been perfect with our traditional Yuletide food. (at my hotel room in Oslo, 25.11.2010).

thebeertourist (4651) - Oslo, NORWAY - DEC 3, 2010
Bottle from Fenakroken. Dark brown with a healthy head. Caramel and chocolate aroma. Dry chocolate flavours throughout. A bit watery texture, but overall a very good brown ale.
