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.

Nice aroma of fruits and nuts and chocolate - known as the norwegian milk chocolate "Fruktnøtt". Brown color, and cloudy. Really soft and mild and good.

God og fyldig smak av humle. Litt karamellsmak og fin rødbrun farge. Godt matøl og varmer godt i skrotten ;) ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

gunnar (5213) - Sandnes, NORWAY - NOV 12, 2010
0,75 l bottle from the brewery, thanks to Kai. Pours lear deep amber with a huge frothy tanned head. Aroma of dark caramel, some spices as well. Taste is minimal sweet, nutty caramel which lingers to the finish. Nice easy drinkable brown beer.

OleR (4799) - 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.

Rune (7943) - 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).

yngwie (13345) - 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

thebeertourist (4777) - 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.

tarjei (1954) - Bryne, NORWAY - DEC 20, 2010
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. Aroma is caramel malt, fruit, some spices. Flavor is more than medium sweet, low bitterness, some fruit and roasted malt. Fine carbonation and fine balance.

Palme (3240) - Bergen, NORWAY - SEP 5, 2011
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!
