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.

punainen6 (93) - FINLAND - AUG 18, 2008
Bottle. Dark brown color with a small head. Tiny carbonation with a refreshing bite, malts, bread and caramel. Maybe abit lacking on the taste and alchocol comes off abit too strong.

raymondwave (931) - FINLAND - DEC 19, 2007
Bottle 0.33 l. Nicely dark amber looks, smallish head. Malts, caramel, some syrup. Alcohol sweetness. Not that different from milder version, except for the alcohol sweetness. Not bad, but quite characterless and thinnish for such high alcohol.
