COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Juleølet er mørkt rødbrunt i fargen og oser av Jul med en anelse nellik i både smak og lukt. Den har en avbalansert maltkarakter og lav/middels humleprofil. Ølet er fyldig med masse smak, men samtidig lettdrikkelig og med en passe god sødme. Passer utmerket til alt fra kromkaker til ribbe, eller bare til kos i Juletiden.

Pours deep mahogany with a fairly good tan head that lasts. Aromas are malt, yeast, cocoa, and spices, as well as some caramel and brown sugar. The taste is somewhat sweet. The mouthfeel is a bit thin, and the carbonation is medium-low. Lindesnes Juleøl feels like a watered down version of Nøgne Ø’s God Jul, and would make a great beer if they didn’t opt for a <4.7% variety.

0.5l bottle from Meny Oslo City. It clearly smells like a Christmas ale this. In the glass it has a deep dark brown colored, not black at all more murky-ish. It also has a big bright ideas lacing head. Really nice chocolaty aromas here, cocoa and mild vanilla-ish spices. Yeah, I kinda like it. Slightly acidic flavors. It’s mild oily in the mouth and it had a soft prickling carbonation level. Again, mild chocolate in the taste. Not overly spicy in any way but it has a mild cardamom hint. Yeah, moreish and quite good. I’ll be having this again someday. 23.05.2014

RuneStumo (2184) - FØRRESFJORDEN, NORWAY - FEB 21, 2014
19.02.2014. 0,5l Bottle. Spesialbutikken Vaaland, Bryne. Dark brown amber colour. Very nice a little unclear deep colour with pale off-white head. Aroma is first very sweet malty and lots of yeast. Gets softer but there is still lots of sweetness and brown sugar. Caramel and toffee as well. A little to sweet overall. Yeastyness gets better after a couple of sips. Not as rich as I expected from the aroma and the colour. Probably because it lacks alcohol, abv only 4,7%. Aftertaste is very smooth with nice malty tones and soft tender bitterness.
