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.

zeke626 (437) - 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.
