COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Danish: Præget af en behagelig grundsødme fra ikke at være helt nedgæret. Malt- og humlenuancer forstærkes således og indtryk af bl.a. passionsfrugt og urter venter den hengivent smagende. Rundhåndet humlet med Hallertauer og Columbus. Rød som Rudolfs tud.
Velegnet til julens mad og hygge.

Slightly opaque dark brown amber with a big frothy head that left lots of lace. Aroma is mostly cherries with some sweet caramelly malt. Nicely balanced flavour that tended towards sweet, but had some bitterness to complement. A good honest drink. (Thanks to highlandlad)

Despite its modest ratings I enjoyed this as much as any of the Danish Christmas beers that I’ve had the pleasure of trying thanks to the estimable Papsoe. It’s not as sweet as some and has a light smoky flavour that gives it some complexity IMO. Looked great - cloudy copper with a towering shaving foam head that hung around like a fruit fly on jam-making day. The aroma is very sweet, with oodles of malt. It sparked a childhood "smell memory" from the 1970s when my ould Scots ma discovered the German rumtopf and we had a long summer of raspberries, cherries and strawberries soaked in rum. This julebryg has rum-soaked cherries and a pinch of cinnamon. There is more body here than in many dunkels. It’s sweet, but not cloying - the more I drank, the more I liked. It has many of the characteristics of the Xmas style, plus a little extra oomph. Among the flavours were cinnamon, maraschino cherries, coriander, Xmas spices and a whiff of fireplace. Of course, I’ll defer to local raters who have more experience of the style but I enjoyed this one. (50cl bottle courtesy of Papsoe - thanks Henrik; best before 10/7/06)

Bov (10123) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - FEB 2, 2006
hazy amber-brown colour with a bad head retention; earthy aroma with light notes of caramel and peanuts; medium-bodied and rather on the sweet side; high carbonation, the finish is very earthy and malty, moderately dry - a pleasant beer which reminds me the BFM Cuivrée

TBone (13539) - Pori, FINLAND - DEC 21, 2005
Bottled (BB 07/2006)
Hazy red color, good creamy tan head. Light metallic and chocolaty aroma. Medium-bodied, but palate is quite watery. Malty, a bit sweet, some roasty notes in the finish. Creamy mouthfeel. Some bitterness in the aftertaste mixed with hints of sugar. Ok brew but quite simple.
