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.

Bottle. Clear light to medium amber red color with a average, frothy, good lacing, mostly diminishing, off-white head. Aroma is moderate malty, caramel, hay, dust. Flavor is moderate sweet and light bitter with a average duration. Body is light to medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft. (221207)

yespr (31470) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - JAN 24, 2007
50 cL bottle. Pours amber with huge light brown head. Aroma is malt and caramel and the classical Svaneke yeast which is also present in the taste. Sweet flavour. Nothing special, I which that had their real Christmas brews on the shelves.

Ungstrup (29473) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - NOV 26, 2005
A hazy orange-brown beer with a huge brown head. The aroma contains notes of caramel, esters, and a dusty hop note - could be Goldings. The flavor is pretty much like the rest of the Svaneke beers - no mistake could be made, it is sweet with strong notes of caramel and esters from warm fermentation of a lager. I really can’t find anything Christmas about this beer.

Papsoe (25085) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - NOV 20, 2005
(Bottle 50 cl) Hazy amber golden with a warm, underlying orange glow. Huge and frothy off-white head that only dissipates very slowly. Malty, caramelish aroma. Rustic and somewhat artisanal touch. Sweetish malty yet with a faint underlying tartness. Hops do appear to add a bitter finish. Not bad, just a bit flawed and inharmonious. 201105

saxo (14089) - Højbjerg, Aarhus, DENMARK - DEC 16, 2005
Bottled. Amber coloured. Malty aroma with notes of caramel. Sweet and malty flavour. Rather light bodied. Should have stayed with their regular christmas brew.

Dedollewaitor (14036) - Odense, DENMARK - NOV 21, 2008
50cl bottle as "rød jul". Pours amber/brown with a large fluffy head. Lots of grain, hay & caramel. Medium to thin palate. Allright . quite mediocre!
