omhper (19953) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - DEC 24, 2002
Canned. Dark reddish brown, very little head. Caramel aroma. Sugary, but not extremely sweet. Mediun bodied with some crystal malt character and slight late bitterness. Still dominated by toffee and caramel.

Amber color with an ok head. There is not much aroma, but maybe it brings some sweetness. Has a rather weak flavor, a boring beer...

bark (255) - Linköping, SWEDEN - NOV 27, 2004
Bottle. The foam is beige, compact and finger thick. The colour is dark ruby.

The smell is quite mild, malty and somewhat sweet sour with some notes of crisp bread.

The carbonation is quite strong with small bubbles as it should be in a Swedish Christmas lager.

The taste is malty with some sweet notes. The slowly growing bitterness got some burned and fruity notes. The finishing taste is gentle and dry.

This is a quite discreet dark lager. On the other hand, if a beer should be able to accomplish the Swedish yuletide smorgasbord with its smoked, salt, sweet, sour and peppery tastes, it might not be too robust.

Finn (4402) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JAN 2, 2007
Bottled 0,33l. Dark red brown coloured. A creamy head. Rich malty aroma and a sweet bitter flavour. Ending in a sweet way. Thanks to Rune for the lunch invitation and the beer.

larsga (6319) - Oslo, NORWAY - JAN 8, 2009
Big yellow-beige coarseish head. Barely translucent dark red body with carbonation. Fruity roasty buttery aroma, kind of weak, with chocolatey papery notes. Dry-sweetish roasty buttery wild berry taste kind of clashes with itself, and with the dry roasty papery cinnamon aftertaste that follows. Some raisins and coke, too. Mid-to-full body. Decent, in a way, but didn’t enjoy that much. (0.5l can, Systembolaget, Charlottenberg.)

DruncanVeasey (7315) - NUNEATON, CONF N, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - JAN 18, 2009
Can, New Year’s Eve. Ruby with white lid, specks of lace. Soap, caramel, cooked malts, possibly faint English hop aroma. Crunch of locust bean. Gentle berry fruit, soapdish, wax, caramel, biscuit. Bit of shampoo bitterness. Polite, competent, dull. Something like a tinned Czech dark. No glaring off-notes. Splash of pasteurised Shep Neame. OK I suppose.

Kita (1192) - 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...

motelpogo (6968) - Plzen, CZECH REPUBLIC - DEC 9, 2002
my mate sebastian bought this at ikea in berlin of all places. looked like coke and smelled of rye and brown sugar. drinkable enough. hinted at rich roasted flavours but never really delivered. if it had a bit more kick to it it could be quite a good beer

oh6gdx (20902) - Vasa, FINLAND - DEC 22, 2005
Canned. Dark ruby red colour with beige mediumsized head, which disappears quite fast. Aroma is like sweaty socks at first, but after the beer has settled for a short while you can tell sweet malts with some spicy and roasted hints. Flavour is strong hops, but at the same time plummy and some roasted malts. Aftertaste mainly hoppy, with also some weak roasted malts. Positive surprise from Spendrups!
