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.

thewolf (10781) - Kolding, DENMARK - NOV 24, 2006
Pours fiery amber with abig fizzy yet creamy looking off white head. Aroma is heavy of sweet caramel, some clove, coriander and other sweetness. Quite high carbonated. Sweet and caramelly at first, then turns flowery, adding som toffee flavours before going into a slight dry bitterness.

madsberg (9651) - Søborg, DENMARK - DEC 11, 2005
Bottled: Orange coloured. Unclear. Huge light brown head. Malty, sweet and fruity aroma. Some spicy and chocolate notes. Liqourice, fruits and sweetness in the flavour. Spices is there as well. Medium bodied. Alcohol is detectable in the end which is rather dry as well. Typical Svaneke yeast is detecttable. Thus far I’m not overly impressed wiht the new christmasbrews I’ve tried.

Bov (9050) - 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

yngwie (12682) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUL 17, 2007
Bottle. Deep golden, with a beige head. Matly, slightly roasted aroma with some hops. The flavor has some spicyness, as well as sweet maltyness. Medium body. Sweet finish with a little spicy note. A quite nice beer, but nothing special to it. (070608)

Pinball (10607) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - OCT 26, 2009
clear pale amber or dark orange, smooth large offwhite head. very nice floral medium to strong hoppy aroma, faint caramel, citrussy notes too. quite fresh. hopped enough to make it interesting. flavor is mildly bitter, floral hoppy, faint malty sweet, a little bit boring, but somewhat more bitter and hoppy than your average english beer, which it resembles. flavor indicates craftmanship to me. Nice bitter one.

Bottles as Rød Jul, bottel from yespr, thanks! Orange brown color, malty aroma. Malty, flowery soft hopbitter flavor with a hint of cinnamon. Well balanced, especially for a Christmas ale.
