larsniclas (5745) - Billdal, SWEDEN - DEC 14, 2007

SamGamgee (2452) - down the whirlpool, California, USA - NOV 25, 2007
50cl can on the cruise from Copenhagen to Oslo. Clear light amber, light head. Faint metallic/sweet aroma. A little more caramel flavor than regular Sofiero, but still thin and bland.

   AROMA 3/10   APPEARANCE 2/5   TASTE 4/10   PALATE 2/5   OVERALL 8/20
jacobwennbom (353) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - NOV 23, 2007
Pours pale and non-appeticing, spreads an acid aroma. Then there is nothing. This is a week brew, especially for a christmas beer. There are traces of roasted malt in the taste but the most striking feature of Sofiero’s Julöl is it’s thinness. Some might say though, "don’t forget about the boiled vegetables" that strikes you like the overly ripe tomato strikes the lousy entertainer.

ante (3374) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - NOV 20, 2007
Canned. Clear amber colour with a low bubbly white foam. Faint notes of caramel, vegetables, metal and rice with a just a whiff of toasted malts. Bland and lifeless flavour of vegetables, metal and caramel. Mild finish of caramel and metal
