Slick (1969) - Thief River Falls, Minnesota, USA - FEB 14, 2004
Good straw color,small white head that lasted for a decent time and managed to leave a light lace behind.The aroma was malty lemon grass and maybe a faint spice with the taste being sweet and malty with a nice mellow fruit presence of lemon and maybe a mild spice.The alcohol seems to be fairly well hidden,with just the faintest of hints.Hops are there in a mild way.Fairly decent brew in an American way i guess.Thanks go to Love_caissa for sending this brew my way.

stouby (4107) - Holbæk, DENMARK - DEC 28, 2004
UPDATED: JAN 18, 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.

Bottle. Nice yellow color with a big lasting white head. Aroma: Straw, hops, malt and alc. Taste: The sweetness from the malt is balanced well by the bitternes. Medium high carbonation. The high alc gives a warming finish. I like it.

PapaVillum (677) - Valby, DENMARK - DEC 19, 2013
33 cl, flaske (årgang 2012), 7,9 % ABV, købt i Irma på Roskildevej i Valby, 19. december 2013. Gylden ravfarvet julebryg med flot hvid skumtop, ca. 1 1/2 cm tyk. God lidt sødlig duft af malt. Lidt citrus. Det sødlige har mindelser om abrikos. Smagen er rund, let sødlig og bayersk pilsner-agtig, når det kommer til det bitre. Men sødmen gør øllet fyldigt. God lang eftersmag, som aldrig bliver for sød. Middel indhold af kulsyre, og alligevel en fin afstemt mundfylde. Denne - i KBH - "halvsjældne" øl smagte jeg første gang på Christiania's Jukemarked for ca. 8 år siden - de har den stadig, og hvert år, og den skuffer ikke! God, solid LYS juleøl! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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

highlandlad (1434) - 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)
