Magnumbottle 1,5 liters from Ølbutikken, Copenhagen. Have had this on tap at Ørsted before and found it sooo dilicious and very unlike the traditional way of thinking Christmas beers - and thats cool. Lets expand the view on christmas beers in Denmark to be more than a belgian inspired dark sweet and heavy thing with orange peel etc - you know the stuff. Lets agree on hat a christmas beer can and should be something more and something else than that - just look to what they do in the states - Yulesmth for example. Well On to the beer. This one is bottled and is beeing served to some tradition danish stuff that also kinda belong to christmas time. Good old Medister Pølse. The pour is hazy dark amber with an impressive golden white head that is fluffy like head. A true beauty. The nose is citric with a lot of herbs and yeast notes. On top of that there a hints of some mango, grass and pine. The mouthfell is light with a medium creamy palate that is very smooth. Tastes of oranges and american hops with a fistfull of pine cones with an farm stables attitude. The finish is smooth and bitter and you sense the alcohol. For sure the best danish christmas brew 2009 in my opinion.

daknole (8559) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - MAR 16, 2010
Amberish pour. Citrus hops, honey, and spices. Flavor is dominated by hops but has enough malt to balance it. Pretty good stuff.

UPDATED: NOV 8, 2011 150cl, new exclusive Danish brew Anno 2009, from De Hopduvel Gent, complex bitter X-Mas brew, yet easy to drink, balanced, cloudy, rocky head, very good brew, yet expensive!

Bottle. Pours an unclear, dark amber beer with an offwhite head. The aroma is hops with peach and citrus. The flavor follows the nose with hops with peach, citrus and grapefruit. The palate is bitter. Overall a good beer.

MesandSim (7119) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 17, 2010
A Mes rate. Bottle at Chris O’s Night of the Gaylords.
A very attractive orange amber with a thin but lasting white head. Just utterly incredible hops. Spruce, cranberry, red current, marvelously tropical, faint spice and pepper and just all round bloody outstanding. Glorious palate, long dry finish. Yet another reason to love Mikkeller.

Bottle at Chriso Gaylord tasting 09. Massive thanks to Fonefan for this one. My beer of the tasting, even though there was a lot to choose from. Lots of hops on aroma. Lovely. Really really good. Like the Festival 2009 beer. Lovely. Hops are stunning. Would happily dirnk the whole 1.5 litre bottle to myself. Have I mentioned the hops????
