Well, the must of all Danish x-mas beers. Has an unmatched sweetness in the taste. The aroma is, however, sour and too yeasty.

Lighter in colour, aroma and flavour than it’s blue brother. The brewery is right when it says that this is for the ladies.

UPDATED: MAY 23, 2004 Bottled: Golden colour with a medium head. Not much carbonation. The aroma is sweet and vague hoppy. The flavour is sweet as well, but dosn't have any bitterness at all. It's a very smooth and easy drinkable beer, but nothing special. One of the older "Julebryg" (christmasbrew) in Denmark, but not as popular as Carl's Jul and Tuborg Julebryg.

Clear orange-golden color. Nothing looks like a special x-mas brew. The bottle says class II brew, which i didn’t hope to taste. Prepared for the worst, i took a smell. Not bad, pilsener like hops and that kind of stuff. First nip: hmm, tastes like a decent strong pilsener. Not the sweetness and warmth you would have thought about when drinking an x-mas brew. Palate is leaving it’s taste, but brings nothing extra in positive or negative way. After all i’m still kinda happy buying this pack of beer at a local gas-station in Denmark, on my way back to Holland. But i cant imagine Danish people are proud of this beer. They rather stick to Tuborg Julebrow (dutch keyboard, forgive me for the bad spelling) or Carls Jul.
