COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bryggingen av juleøl er ekstra viktig for et bryggeri. Enhver bryggerimester med respekt for seg selv forsøker alltid å forbedre smaken fra året før. Mack Juleøl Sterkøl har en rødlig og dyp farge, og har et meget godt skum. Smaken er søtlig, med en hentydning av krydder. Mack Juleøl Sterkøl skal serveres med en god og fyldig skumtopp, og er ypperlig til julematen.

Albertsen (70) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JAN 6, 2013
Deep readly color, light, minimal foam. Almost no smell. The taste starts of very bright, but fails to keep up. Its aqueous. Had big expectations. Thats a shame. At its best an average christmas beer.

Snegurochka (385) - Tromsø, NORWAY - DEC 30, 2012
330ml bottle with pinnekjøtt@Mother-in-law’s place. Brown-reddish body, prunes, plums, dates and sweet malts, some spices. I like the new bottle-design and I really enjoyed this with my food. Better with pinnekjøtt than Aas. (Tromsø 28.Dec.2012)

Pours hazy red/brown with a brownish head. Sweet malts on the nose. Aroma of light caramel and spices. Weak aroma. Another macro brew, but OK if you’re out of other stuff.

Holmen1 (2293) - Stavanger, NORWAY - DEC 14, 2012
UPDATED: JUL 12, 2013 Flaske hjemme: rubinrød, noe uklar. Beige skum, nokså kortvarig. Behagelig munnfylde med smak av lett røstet kaffe of karamell. Kompetent juleøl, men kommer ikke til å huske det som spesielt. Flaske på Utheim, delt med Johnne: nesten ingen aroma, smak av gammeldags hjemmebrygg/tomtebrygg og en ettersmak som forsvinner fortere enn du kan si "verdens nordligste bryggeri". Ned fra 3.0 til 2.3. Kan det ha tapt seg så raskt?

TyggaBrown (383) - NORWAY - NOV 11, 2012
330 ml bottle. This is too much of the dried fruites, but the body and level of bitterness is close to perfect.

Bottle. Dark brown body, small beige head. Aroma of raisins, fruit, caramel. Taste of rye, prunes and chocolate, hops. A bit thin, but a nice beer overall.

On tap in Olhallen, Tromso. Clear dark red - brown beer. Small cream coloured head. Smooth palate with fine carbonation. Creamy malt. Dark toffee. A little molasses - marmite. A whisper of spiciness. Lacto. Good tart fruits bringing up the rear. Figs, prunes and berry fruits. Semi dry finish. Another decent Mack beer.

Benjii (3049) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - APR 13, 2012
In bottle at Craig’s. Pours a brown colour with a lacy beige head. A spicy aroma of cinnamon, nutmeg, caramel and treacle. Similar flavours with mild carbonation and an oily mouth-feel.
