Transferring older data - can from Sweden. An uninspired amber lager, some hints of spices and dried fruits, rather sweet.

visionthing (3884) - Oslo, NORWAY - NOV 20, 2014
50cl can from Systembolaget, Strömstad. Pours clear copper coloured with an off-white head. Malty and caramelly aroma with hints of dark dried fruits, roasted malt and herbs. Fairly sweet with modest malty flavours and a quite mild bitterness. Fairly standard, too sweet and too boring.

SamTheBarrel (694) - Vallentuna, SWEDEN - NOV 7, 2014
500ml bottle poured into a Tulip glass. Appearance is clear dark copper colored with a large frothy beige head that reduced swiftly leaving some lacing behind on the glass. Aroma of caramel and syrup loaf. Flavours of caramel, raisins and syrup loaf. Taste is medium-light sweet and medium bitter. Palate is medium-light bodied, slightly sticky texture and average carbonation. Spendrups Julbrygd is unexciting, overly sweet and not spicy enough for a Christmas brew.

Kita (1592) - Koper, SLOVENIA - OCT 5, 2014
Can, 0.50l. Clear pale amber color with large frothy off-white head and sparkling appearance. Aroma of cereals, bread, toffee and dark fruits. Taste starts with moderate sweet caramel malt, follows by bready and sour fruity notes, while finish is mild bitter. Light to medium body, slick texture and average carbonation in palate. Pretty average julbrygd...

djoeye (2751) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JAN 23, 2014
Brown clear body, red tunes, beige to light brown tight head, some laceworks. Scents; malt, apple, grass, nuts, faint marzipan - no xmas spices though. Taste; malt, grass, raisin, chocolate or cocoa notes. Ok carbonation and feel to palate. Mild warming end with chocolate malts, dark bread. Overall tasty, but some yuletide spices would defend the "julbrygd" title in a better way. Got a 1/2L can @Systembolaget in Boden City Sweden, brought to Norway and enjoyed@home with druzhyna Annya 2014JAN23.

Senap (512) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - DEC 27, 2013
Som att dricka den ökända svenska klassikern "bayerskt" dvs. en mörk lager med lite högre sötma än vanligt. Ingen upplevelse direkt.

Cool_Bond (2079) - KUNG_AV_OL @ Instagram, SWEDEN - DEC 23, 2013
Good malty aroma. Occasionally with a taste quite bitter. Decent long finish. Okay beer. Follow me @ Kung av öl @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings.

olsvammel (4686) - Örebro, SWEDEN - DEC 15, 2013
Sample at a Systembolaget tasting. Sweet and fruity smel with some dried fruit and light notes of marcipan. Mild taste with notes of wort bread. Not as bad as the other industrial beers but still not very good.
