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.

Cunningham (7055) - Halden, NORWAY - JAN 27, 2015

Palate: Medium body. Moderate sweet and a moderate bitterness. Average carbonation.
Taste: Caramel malty, bready and a maybe some roasted notes.
Overall impression: Easy drinkable, but will not at all give you some Christmas beer feeling.

Surprisingly good and light dark lager Christmas beer. Whatever the label says, it's a dark lager perfect for when you're thirsty. Good with salty food! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Rune (11365) - Tromsø, NORWAY - DEC 26, 2014
500ml can as Pripps Blå Julöl III from Systembolaget Kiruna, kindly brought to Tromsø by djoeye. Clear copper coloured body to an-off-white head quickly reduced to a filmy layer. Minimal lacing. Mild brown malty nose. More burnt than roasted caramel to the taste buds, some moderate impact of dried fruits to the ending with vague hints of cardboard. Medium bodied. Easy to drink. Unvaried, but not that bad (shared with Frau Eva, Tromsø 25.12.2014).

Mørk orangebrun klar med fingerhøyt beige skum. Lukter kandissukker og malt. Smaker sukkersøtt med en tanke bittersøt brent sukker. Kort.

djoeye (3835) - Tromsø, NORWAY - NOV 23, 2014
Dark brown body (extremely dark if amber) with a good off white to fawn head on. Average lacing. Aroma; dusty hops, flowerdust, mild malts, bitter sour berry peels, faint sour metallic notes. Taste; dark mild syrupy malts, caramel chocolate juice, small dry hop notes, continues into aftertaste. Feels easy on palate. Drinkable, but pretty spiceless. [50cl can, abv5%, B@Systembolaget Kiruna, 1€80c, BB29APR15, T@höme]

visionthing (4831) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - NOV 18, 2014
50cl can from Systembolaget, Strömstad. Pours clear mahogany with a tan head. Malty and caramelly aroma with just hints of roast and hops. Fairly sweet and caramelly with some almost sourish and metallic notes. Quite similar to lots of Norwegian shop strength Christmas beer. Hardly impressive, best to avoid, but drinkable if one has to to.

SamTheBarrel (777) - Vallentuna, SWEDEN - NOV 6, 2014
500ml can poured into a Tulip glass. Appearance is clear dark copper colored with a large frothy beige head, that reduced quickly leaving some lacing. Aroma of metallic notes, minerals, caramel and bread. Flavours of processed sugar, alcohol, syrup loaf, caramel and toffee.Taste is medium-light sweet and medium bitter. Palate is medium-light bodied, slightly sticky texture and average carbonation. Pripps Julöl is overall a poor unbalanced Christmas beer, the aroma is unpleasant and taste is dominated by sweetness.

Kavu (4187) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAR 7, 2014
