COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
An unconventional Christmas brew that departs from the tradition of Winter warmers being sweet and malty. Our Christmas brew is abundantly hopped with the four American C's: Cascade, Chinook, Columbus and Centennial. Cinnamon and coriander provides the Christmas spirit and adds to the merriness.
Brewed on Maris Otter ale malt, crystal malt, wheat malt, soft brown sugar and Demerare cane sugar. Ølfabrikken Jule Ale is, of course, unpasteurized, unfiltered and cask conditioned like all of our beers. Introduced on 'Fynske Øldage' 2005.

Frovigalning (2908) - Örebro, SWEDEN - DEC 15, 2013
Sample at a Systembolaget tasting. The smell feels artificial and boozy, but there is some dried fruits there as well, apricots. Rough and annoying carbonation. Feels like an industrial beer, reminds me of the typical swedish ones.

Cool_Bond (1218) - Kung av Öl @ Facebook, SWEDEN - DEC 14, 2013
Very bitter beer with fine hints of fruit. Sweeter taste with a bit more fruit flavor but no taste of alcohol, which is good. Slightly bitter putting himself atop the tongue for a while. I liked this beer. My kind of American Strong Ale. Follow me @ Kung av öl @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings.
