Bottle. Chestnut with a nice red shine. Neutral sweet aroma. Dark sugar sweetness with a hint caramelized roast. Light spicy finish. Medium body mellow mouthfeel.

McWorta (721) - LUXEMBOURG - JAN 25, 2015
Clear dark amber colour with a fine pillowy head. Noses sugary, caramelised malt like. Softly carbonated light slick with a medium body. Sweet is the dominant flavour here with a chewy finish. Actually this is the theme of the beer, sweetness. And with the classic danish christmas ris a l’amand a classic match. By itself unspectectular with a too pronounced clogging sweetness, so get it with the dish...

Clear, red brown. Small offwhite head. Sweet, malty, caramely aroma. Super sweet flavour, something like prunes or cola... Pretty disgusting.

Again one of those traditional Danish low alcohol dark christmas beers. This one is less sweet than others I had before - that’s a good news, so I don’t have to pour it! Still, it stays a veeeery sweet beer, full of sweet malt aromas and with hints of coffee and caramel. This one has even a (tiny) hint of hops. Well, I tghink I know why this tradition never made it to the rest of the world.... If you are someone sweet (like eating Nutella with the spoon), this one might be for you. But just to be clear, it’s the best of all those sweet low alcohol X-mas beers from Denmark I tasted. Still I don’t like it.

20-NOV-2014, bottle @home, from Kvickly. Clear, dark brown with a hint of red hue and quickly dying tan head. Nice sweet aroma of brown sugar and bread. Taste the same. OK body, but turns watery. Medium carbonation or perhaps a bit softer. Short finish. Almost no bitterness. I like this companion with Risengrød.

NordicV (1242) - Malmö, Sweden, SWEDEN - DEC 28, 2013
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 (3571) - 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.
