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.

Furseth (1947) - Kungälv, SWEDEN - MAY 15, 2006

Palme (3163) - Bergen, NORWAY - DEC 1, 2011
0.33l bottle. This one pours a deep deep ruby-brown body with a quickly fading and heavy sidesticking beige head. The aroma is not to bad, it has some light burned caramel notes, banana both sweetness and fruitiness, thin chocolate paper, cardboard hints and it also has a flower-water touch over it. Not horrible at all. Average to lively carbonation level and it has quite a nice oily to light sticky mouthfeel. Flavors even better than the aroma with lots of sweet caramel, tones of dates and raisins also and it’s quite malty but still well balanced with bitterhops before it ends quite mouthdrying. I’m sold on this one. Did not expect it to taste this good.

KnutAlbert (6013) - Oslo, NORWAY - NOV 8, 2005
Bottled 2005 version: Quite good, but not really there. Taste of dried fruit, I would say plums. Molasses sweetness which lasts long. Rather fizzy.
