MartinKubert (862) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUN 6, 2003
A little light coloured for a x-mas. Sweet, hoppy aroma, though with a delicate hint of orange shells. OK balanced brew.

LoveCaissa (873) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - DEC 19, 2002
Golden colour, decent white head. Sweet and vaguely hoppy, but somewhat unpleasant aroma. Flavour is quite (too!) sweet and IMHO unbalanced. Low carbonation. An old and afterall easily drinkable Danish Christmas Brew, but try the Blue instead.

Mads Langtved (2244) - Copenhagen K, DENMARK - NOV 22, 2002
Pretty well-balanced and harmonic. A pretty regulary Danish Christmas brews. Not as heavy and alcoholic as the blue version.

Ungstrup (30936) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - NOV 19, 2002
A light amber beer with an OK head though it disappears very quickly. The aroma is sour and like brewing cereal (the beer is partly brewed on corn) - I don’t like the aroma. The flavor is sticky sweet almost like a sodapop but without the gas. It finishes of with a weird bitterness - probably because of the hop used. But the bitterness doesn’t balance the sweetness. Much too sweet for my taste - and therefore not a beer I can recommend.

Hansen (7803) - Assentoft, DENMARK - NOV 18, 2002
Well, the must of all Danish x-mas beers. Has an unmatched sweetness in the taste. The aroma is, however, sour and too yeasty.

Hildigöltur (5104) - København, DENMARK - NOV 16, 2002
Lighter in colour, aroma and flavour than it’s blue brother. The brewery is right when it says that this is for the ladies.

madsberg (10888) - Søborg, DENMARK - NOV 8, 2002
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.

caesar (5878) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - DEC 10, 2001
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.
