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.

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

500 ml bottle. A nice, clear amber body with a fine beige head. Aroma is malty with spices like cloves, anises and maybe some cinnamon? Not so easy to detect the type of spices, but it gives a nice impression of Christmas without being to overwhelming, I think that’s important with a beer at this low alcohol level. Flavor is mild caramel malt, moderate bitterness and the same spicy feeling that comes from the aroma. Medium to thin body and the aftertaste gives some kind of dry/powder feeling from the spices. A decent Christmas beer that are allowed to sell in Norwegian groceries.

OleR (4804) - Oslo, NORWAY - FEB 16, 2013
0.5 L bottle purchased @Varnaveien Mineralvann, Moss. A slow gusher, leaving a massive lightly tanned head, atop a translucent deep ruby brown body. Weak but clean aroma of cocoa and milk chocolate. Dry cocoa-accented malt flavor. Some pretty nice milky/yoghurty tones. Mild peppery bitterness. Light to medium full. Sparkling choco-malty finish. A good one.

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.
