Very much macro, with flavor toned down considerably across the board, this is still a good beer due to its interesting balance of malt and light spice, great sepia-toned appearance (and blue bottle), and clean finish

40 cl from tap@Vanløse Kulturhus in Tuborg footed glass@approx 5 degrees C. (too cold). Pours dark amber/brown with small off-white head with rather low retention. Subdued malty aroma with a hint of sourness. Taste dominated by roasted malt but again weak and uninteresting with not much else happening. Medium texture and carbonation. Where this Danish classic scores - albeit not very high on points - is in the aftertaste, where the added licorice kicks in and leaves you with a quite distictive flavour. Not great by any means, too weak and one-dimensional, but it does have that little "surprise" as a saving grace.

Denne julebryg har et klart rød-brunligt udseende med et medium skum. Øllen har en sød og karameliseret smag. Medium karbonering.

Thanks to very good marketing, this beer has become the symbol of Christmas beers in the Nordic countries. The only Christmassy thing with this beer is the label. Otherwise just a malty beer which could be for any season.

Tæt på bunden inden for juleøl. Trist at denne kedlige øl skal have æren for J-dag

From can. Pours clear brown’ish with a white head. Aroma of sweet caramel, malts, nothing to it. Taste is sweet caramel, grainy, asparges.

(2) Not worth trying. Boring. There is no excitement. There is no christmas. There is good marketing - and for that - A+

Glimrende standard juleøl - ganske som vi kender det/har kendt det gennem mange år...

Slight liquorice, malt and dark fruits. Not too shabby for a macro christmas beer...
