2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Aroma: The smell is weak and mainly dominated by sweet tones, like candid sugar, some malt and a metallic presence.
Appearance: The beer pours with a beige foam that quickly resides leaving little marks on the glass. The color is dark amber/brown.
Taste: The taste is very much dominated by a bit too much sweetness and a metallic feel. A quickly receding bitterness is noted when swallowing.
Palate: The liquid is rather carbonated and gives a soda feeling (like "julmust" - a sweet typical Swedish malt non-alcoholic soda).
Overall: There are better ones!
Note: Can 500 ml Reviewed 2010-01-03.

UPDATED: NOV 11, 2012 Bottle as a sample from the brewery. It has a very weak smell with a note of metal and some wort bread. Similar taste, also weak. Drinkable but not exciting at all.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Can from Systembolaget. Best before date May 2012. I thought I better drink this before getting far too old. Didn’t really like it last Christmas, but with low expectations it was a bit better now than expected. Maybe gained of beeing stored a bit. However a bit too sweet.

Sample at a tasting at Systembolaget in October 2012. I am not sure if this is the same beer as Pripps Julöl, but with a new name?
Clear copper with a small white head. Sweet with caramel, malt and some dark bread. Drinkable but not exciting at all.

En högst ordinär julöl. Varken dofter eller smaker sticker ut. Knäck och sirap, och mycket vattnigt.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle (50cl) at Arlanda airport, Stockholm. Small offwhite head, quickly diminishing. Clear, dark brown colour. Aroma of malt, cola, caramel, hint of licorice. Body is medium/light, average carbonation. Semisweet taste with malt and cola, finish is papery. Best consumed cold - as the beer warms up the sweetness appears more cloying and less ’integrated’, and the beer appears more like a mix of lager and cola.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Aroma of roasted malt and possibly some chocolate. The taste is quite sweet and soft, and consists mostly of malt, but there are also some spices in the background. Fairly good and easy to drink!
