Mörkt brun öl med ljusbrunt skum. Kväljande söt i både doft och smak. Hvidöl är helt enkelt inte min typ av öl. Det enda positiva jag kan säga är att den smakar mycket och är fyllig för att vara en lättöl.

Takie zwyklutkie piwo przypominalo nasze karmi. Prawie bezalkoholowe i w dodatku swiateczne i przwdziwei sezonowe. Co mnie dziwi bo np belgijskie piwa swiateczne maja sporo mocy a tu prawie nie ma. Przez to piwo jest mdle i slodkawe, powiedzmy nawet ze przesadnie, maltozowe takze w przesadzie ze wzgledu na ten ochydny syrop. Chmielu nie uswiadczych, winnej wytrawnosci tez, zimowego rozgrzania wraz z przyprawami. Zastanawiam sie co tu oprocz tego mikolaja na etykiecie jest swiatecznego i zwlaszcza tradycyjnego piwa ale, bo raczej smak jak piwo dolnej fermentacji. Odradzam

Bamsen78 (3155) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - DEC 4, 2013
Bottle. Pours clear very dark brown with ruby shades and small tan head. Faint aroma of raw malt, with some dusty notes. Sweet flavour of caramel, mollases and sugar. Grainy, bready, and roasty notes. Sweet aftertaste. Definitely not my kind of beer, but not the worst nisseøl I have tasted!

This is how beer was made in Denmark solely up until the mid 1800’s, before Carlsberg started brewing classic bavarian style beer. KB Juleøl is probably the best known of it’s kind and it dates back to the year 1443. A tad sweeter than the Ceres equivalent, but just as god.

Koelschtrinker (10710) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JAN 23, 2013
Süßlicher, deutlich brotiiger Antrunk, ähnlich einem Malzbier. Geringe Bitterkeit und Herbe, die Süße wird eher schwächer. Mild brotig, rund. 6/9/8/9/7/8

brnandersen (1933) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - DEC 7, 2012
Sample from 33 cl. bottle - yes, I am a guy with a lot of moderation... Dark brown colour with a reddish hue, thin tan head. Sweet aroma with lots of brown sugar, caramel and roasted malts. Also a hint of licorice. Taste is medium to heavy sweet. Thin body and texture, no wonder it´s a 1,7 %, soft carbonation. Short, sweet finish with brown sugar and a pleasant licorice. Wow, I actually like this thin, sugary stuff. Surprised. Positively.
