Mit McTapps geteilt. Durchaus trinkbar mit seiner milden Mischung aus Getreide, Rosinen und ein paar Pflaumen. Recht simpel zu trinken, angenehme Sueffigkeit und ein milder, leicht getreidiger Abgang. Alles ok.

Bottle from trade with gunnar - thank you :) The beer has got a deep, dirty brownish colour with an steady head and medium body. Aroma of malt and christmas spices. Taste of mild malt, ginger, christmas spices, nutmeg, liquer, wine and light cinnamon. Hints of ripe fruits like plums, but actually I guess it is more like an old and dried one. Drinkable and good.

Quite good, but not very good. Notes of IPA, but also christmas spices and an oily and nice texture.

0,5l bottle. 2014. Red,brown. Minimal white head. Strong aroma of hops. Fresh,astringent flavour of hops, but more pilsner than pale ale. Far from what I associate with an Xmas brew. More refreshing and light than most metallic Norwegian pilsner,though. Disappointing Xmas brew,alright for a hoppy pilsner or pale ale.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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

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.
