highlandlad (1474) - Blue Mountains, AUSTRALIA - JAN 21, 2006
An untypical Christmas beer out of Denmark. Feels a bit like a Duvel clone but without as much character. Intense gold colour with a solid, lasting plug of foam. Surprisingly soft aroma for a 7.9% abv bock. Very light pale malts, a hint of sticky wine and some grassiness. Remiscent of Duvel or perhaps Carlsberg Special Brew. Still, there’s not a great deal going on there. Medium bodied, with quite an oily mouthfeel. Nice soft carbonation. The flavour mix is as subtle as the aroma: sweet and malty, with faint spices, tropical fruit and some peppery bitterness in the finish. Again, very much like Duvel. Very drinkable for its strength but a little short on character. (33cl bottle, trade with Papsoe - thanks Henrik!, bb 23/4/06)

yngwie (16517) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JAN 15, 2006
UPDATED: MAR 22, 2010 Bottled. Golden with a small off-white head. Light malty aroma with some hay. Sweet malty flavor with too much hops for a christmas beer. Stinging bitterness in the finish, and some alcohol. Rating:4-2-5-3-11-2.5. 061115

Bottle, courtesy of fonefan. As Jul i Underhuset. A clear, golden beer with an off-white head. Alcohol, malty sweetness and fruit notes in the aroma. Quite weak. Sweet, fruity flavor with some alcohol. Medium to full body with a certain warmth. Decent bitterness in the finish. A rather uninteresting beer, but maybe with some sandwiches. 091024

UPDATED: FEB 16, 2009 Bottled. Very bright golden. Almost no head. A pleasant sweet taste and aftertaste. Went well together with cheese. A different Christmas beer. KI=0

Pours dark golden. Aroma rather skunky, but gets better as the beer warms. A nice bitterness in the flavour.

onystrom (1333) - Magellan Hunter! - Skanderborg, DENMARK - NOV 25, 2005
Light golden color with okay head but dimishing a bit too quickly. Fine full fruity taste not so sweet but x-mas enough for me.

saxo (16960) - Højbjerg, Aarhus, DENMARK - NOV 13, 2005
Bottle, at home. Some taste of malt and hops. The head disappears quickly. The ABV is not felt immediate! Yellow colour? This is not a Christmas beer according to Danish traditions.
