This beer is very popular in Denmark and I really do not understand why?!? To me it is nothing more than a pilsener, just a bit darker and a bit more alcohol. Amber colour with a fast dissapearing head. Both sweet and bitter.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
UPDATED: DEC 22, 2007 (Canned, thanks PWBh!) Clear amber with a smallish head. Grainy-malty, caramely and lightly roasty aroma. Grainy, roasty-malty flavor with quite low bitterness and moderate acidity and some metal. Light to medium-bodied with slightly fizzy carbonation. Alcohol is surprisingly evident considering the ABV. Like bread with 50% oat and 50% rye, served from a metallic plate.

Strange aroma from this one, slightest hint of Belgianlike fruitiness and also roasted malts, but mixed with dishwashing I think. Unlike Eiríkur I got a head but it didn't last much nor was it creamy like the picture leads to believe. The head may be a turn off but the colouring is nice, an amber caramel gold.
The flavour is mostly interesting in the aftertaste, hops and caramel perhaps? Otherwise, it's mostly maltiness, not much detectable roastiness. Nothing particularly special, but OK.

Almost no head, not like pictured at left hand side. This is a very nice brew, nicely balanced and the aroma is nice. But still it not great at any category, nice brew.

Dark amber to copper color, medium head. Slightly sweet and spicy. Not very spectacular, but quite tasty and drinkable.

Bottle. Júlebryg means Christmas beer, and oh what I fine Christmas you can have in Denmark, particularly Copenhagen. If your male and you haven't been yet, then correct it quickly. For the girls amongst us, then the same applies to you...don't waste a second. And in case you were wondering....the beer is good too, but just make sure you get yourself invited to a 'Christmas Lunch’, that all I'll say.

After having tasted Belgian Christmas Brew I realized Tuborg is not the only one, but still though, a very good one
