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 (6924) - 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.)

ClubGonzo (4900) - 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.
