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.

Tim Webb (226) - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - FEB 22, 2011
On draught, 50 metres from the brewery. I am not sure this one is made with Minnesota or Caracas in mind! Medium-dark lager with a hint of spice most likely from yeast, caramel in the nose, not enough punch to be warming. Remarkable in its context.

ClubGonzo (3854) - Bergen, NORWAY - NOV 8, 2010
Bottle. Pours a deep bronze body with a medium beige, creamy head. Aroma is caramel, hints of molasses and roasted malts. Taste is caramel, roasted malts with an OK sweetness level. A quite all right Christmas beer; nothing out of the ordinary but all right for an industrial, I guess.

zeke626 (418) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAR 1, 2010
Bottle shared by akevitt. Pours a clear, orange-red body with tan foam head. Aroma of sweet sugary malts, dark fruit and maybe a hint of wine. Flavor is more of the same with a spiced cake flavor near the back of the palate. Light to medium bodied with a slightly syrupy mouthfeel. This one was tasty and easy to drink.
