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 enjoyed and shared at christmas eve
Deep red murky, big tanned head. Smells of malts, yeast and caramel. Taste is quite malty with a nice sweetness, also some grain. Quite dry on the palate. Finish has nice tones of bitterness from both hops and malts

djoeye (2241) - Tromsø, NORWAY - DEC 25, 2014
Aroma of brown malts, caramel, apple’ish hops, berries, spices and dust. Fawn big head, deep amber-brown-red body, somewhat hazy, and particles. Lacing; some fields. Tastes spicy malts, hops, roasted malts, dark bread, roasted raisins, dark caramel notes all over the place. Finishes malty with spices, juniper, oak - a fine "brown" malty ale’ish aftertaste. Normal feel, quite good body. Overall nice and good brew. Good for heavy yuletide dishes. [75cl br btl, abv4.7%, B@Eurospar, BB11/2015, #510, T@YuleEvening]

tfredvik (1322) - Oslo, NORWAY - DEC 21, 2014
Clear, deep cooper to brown body with a small, frothy, short-lived, beige head. Rather strong aroma of coffee, ash and a pretty burnt overall feel. Strong flavour of lightly burnt malt, coffee, ash, hints of smoke and some generic fruits. Light-bodied and dry. Light sweet and light bitter taste. Too boring, too expensive.
[75 cl bottle, batch 631, enjoyed 2 years before BB date, from ICA Ullevål, Oslo]

75cl bottle. Pours a small white head. Raw natural red brown color. Barely carbonated. Aroma of dark syrup, raisins, hint of pear. Taste of grain, cookies, touch of earth. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
