djoeye (1839) - 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.

The Christmas 2002 had many beers, much more fulbodied than this one, thin with too much sweetness in the end.

olsvammel (3552) - 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.

Sweet, nutty, and grassy aroma with hints of caramel. Taste of grass, white bread, and paper. Dusty aftertaste.

SamTheBarrel (496) - 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.

visionthing (2970) - 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.

fly (1419) - austin, Tejas, Alabama, USA - MAY 25, 2004
Was excited when I got this as a present, but when I poured it out it looked more like a cola than a beer. While it didn’t taste like a cola, it wasn’t much better. Strange tin-like quality and other off flavors masking anything good under it all.

gnoff (7979) - Mölndal, SWEDEN - NOV 19, 2006
(50 cl can from Swedish Systembolaget) Sweet scent, not much else. Clear red color, tan head. Dry roasted a bit metallic and buttery taste. Papery and stale aftertaste. Cardboard oxidated taste. Astringent bitterness.
