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.

larsga (6323) - 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.)

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

OleR (4802) - Oslo, NORWAY - NOV 24, 2010
0,75L bottle, courtesy of gunnar. Thanks a lot! A tall fine-bubbled lightly tanned head, upon a near-clear brownish red body. Light ashy, dry caramelly malts on the nose. Some fine spice and fruit notes, and a whiff of earthy and peppery hops. Dry, medium strong malt body. A pleasant flavor of dark unsweetened chocolatey and nutty malts with a light sourish twist. A very light caramel sweetness beneath. Also a mild roastedness. Some earthy and lightly spiced hops in the backbone. Not very full, but balanced and complex. Powdery texture. Lasting malt finish. A very good Brown, and top end Norwegian ’groucery store’ beer.

Beer4000 (4617) - 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.

Flaske 750ml fra ICA Stakkevollan. Mørkebrun. Raskt forsvinnende skum. Aroma av karamell. Smaken er karamell & malt. Passet fint til får-i-kål. Grei brownale.
