Bottle. Pours a slightly hazy light nougat body with a large cloudy off-white head. Nose is grains, hay, nuts, caramel and hints of straw, nougat and mild fruity tones. Taste is caramel, nuts, nougat, grass and hints of red fruits, brown bread and grains. Medium body, high to medium carbonation. Decent Christmas ale emphasizing grainy-nutty flavors. Likable, though not outstanding in any way. In either case, it is a long way from this beer to the samples I’ve had earlier from Oslo Mikrobryggeri.

Fra fat på bryggeripuben: godt at ikke alle juleøl er søte. Denne bitterheten kan fint skjære igjennom pinnekjøttfettet. Tynt filmskum, og karboneringen/munnfølelsen er også slank. Bitter og tørr avslutning. Tror denne versjonen kunne vært et ok helårsøl.

altonbrownd (5770) - Chevy Chase, Maryland, USA - DEC 26, 2011
On tap at brewery in Oslo. Nice amber body with small head. Nose is malty, fruity and sweet. Taste is a nice Christmasy vienna style with sweet and malts throughout. Also quite hammy and Smoked-like. Quite light though after the imperial stout I just enjoyed.

Cunningham (7049) - Halden, NORWAY - DEC 10, 2011
UPDATED: MAR 1, 2012 On tap at brewery pub 09 des 2011. Amber colour with a small off white head. Fruity and hoppy aroma. A solid malt background with a fresh hoppy flavour. Very fresh and good tasting beer, but not as dark as I would have expected from a christmas brew, I could drink this the whole year around :-)

On tap at the brewpub. Pours dark amber with a small off-white head. Dark malty aroma, toffee as well.Nice and balanced beer, not too sweet, but a good example of a Norwegian Christmas beer.

On tap. Overall I was really impressed with this beer. When I was drinking it I tried to pay more attention to the ingredients that could have possibly gone into it. I thought it tasted like a good ESB without knowing what style they were going for. Nose was spicy, slightly herbal and flowery. Poured with a slight haze too it, beautiful color though, and nice creamy head that stayed a little while. There was some slight yoghurt to the nose as well that I associate with british styles. Taste was very nice clover honey with that hop spice. Very well balanced. I think this is a brilliant jule øl compared to some of the other stuff I’ve sampled. I’ll have to keep this one in mind when I sample the stone nøgne Ø. but thats not till xmas.

berlinoise2go (688) - NORWAY - NOV 27, 2009
On tap at Mikrobryggeriet, Oslo. 5.6% ABV. Reddish amber color. Distinct toffee/butterscotch aroma which made me a bit skeptical initially. Fizzy carbonation. Taste is dominated by toffee, red fruits, malt and hoppy bitterness (skepticism vanished). Nice bitterness in the finish. Well balanced, drinkable beer.

Svesse (7932) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - NOV 7, 2009
(Draught at the brewpub, 5 Nov 2009) Reddish amber colour with frothy, beige head. Malty nose with dark fruit, caramel and spicy hops. Malty, fruity taste with notes of dried fruit, citrus and earthy hops in a finish with a generous bitterness. The aromas are a bit closed in the nose, but come through better in the full-flavoured taste. Nice and well balanced beer.
