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 (7251) - 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.)

KnutAlbert (6675) - Oslo, NORWAY - JAN 17, 2011
Bottle. A gusher. Coffee, caramel, cocoa and Christmas spices. Nice balance, but lacks a little depth and body.

Sigmund (6645) - Tau, NORWAY - DEC 1, 2010
750 ml bottle, kindly shared by gunnar. Dark brown colour, moderate beige head. Fairly nice aroma, moderately spicy notes, also notes of brown malts and leather. Flavour of brown malts and brown sugar (without being very sweet), moderate hops. An okay brown ale!

Finn (6284) - Tromsø, NORWAY - NOV 23, 2014
Flaske 750ml fra ICA Stakkevollan. Mørkebrun. Raskt forsvinnende skum. Aroma av karamell. Smaken er karamell & malt. Passet fint til får-i-kål. Grei brownale.

Beer5000 (5865) - 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.

ClubGonzo (5406) - 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.

thebeertourist (5179) - 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.

OleR (4804) - 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.

On bottle from Ica Hasle, bb date 20710/2016. Brown color, some offwhite foam- quite low carbonation. Medium aroma intensity; malt, hops, dried fruits, slightly roasted notes. Medium body & complexity. Some immediate sweetness, but the following bitterness balances well. Enjoyable
