Amber coloured beer with a big head. Sweet malty aroma. Dry, slightly bitter, rather flat taste. Bitter aftertaste.

screwball (1099) - Motala, SWEDEN - DEC 25, 2006
Red-brown in colour. Begie creamy head. Comes with a sweet burnt sugary armoma and taste. Also malty. This is a boring X-Mas brew.

mithe (1018) - Opava & Brno, CZECH REPUBLIC - NOV 13, 2009
UPDATED: DEC 8, 2010 (Can 0,5l) Light hops, caramel, weak aroma. Brown-red color. Minimal white head. Medium sweet, light sour, caramely taste. Light fizzy. Light bodied to 5.3 ABV. Light astringent finish. (In 2009 seemed to be better than in 2010. But maybe, I get used to better beers:) )

mullet (849) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - NOV 28, 2004
An Ikea-bought present from my Swedish housemates. Looks like Coke with head (decent head retention). Toasty, caramel, chocolate aroma. Loads of thick crystal malt flavour without being overly sweet. A bit earthy even. Quite nice.

Ingevara (832) - SWEDEN - DEC 19, 2002
Malty and sweet, deep nice color. Lingering palate. Like it.

SamTheBarrel (544) - 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.

rozsoma (524) - Győr, HUNGARY - NOV 30, 2008
UPDATED: FEB 11, 2009 can (500ml), it has fruity aroma, floral hops, red color, clear liquid, frothy and red head, medium sour taste (remind me a little bit to rodenbach grand cru) carbonation: fizzy, thin body and texture with a long sear finish in the nose and in the roof of the mouth it is a good northern beer (bought in the ikea)

eManu (476) - Kuala Lumpur & Brussels, BELGIUM - FEB 18, 2009
Maybe the mistake I did was to buy this 50cl can in IKEA, I wanted to try it and I should have just kept buying furniture there. Pours brownish with no foam no head almost flat. Aroma is quite metal and a bit sweet. The flavors, well what flavors, its really very terrible. I had one sip and my gosh its wost than a flat coke, then its appearance looks really like a coke. Its even wrost than the worst soda, its not really drinkable. I had a second sip to make sure and it did not help so it was DOWN THE DRAIN!! Is 0.5 the lowest this can go?
