Light amber color. A nice head, although it disintegrates in a matter of minutes. Sweet aroma with hints of caramel and malt. Flavor is sweet also with hints of malt. Not my favorite but a good Juleøl!

2.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pretty light amber colour, but the head on the picture wildly exaggerates! Disappointing aroma (if any). Flavour is lightly malty and lightly sweet with a hint of licorice. Medium bitter finish. A fairly boring Danish Christmas brew, but the marketing sure deserves an A+. For some (party loving) reason all Danes (myself included) celebrate the release heavily...

An amber beer with no head. The aroma is very faintly sweet. But the flavor is a lot better: it has a nice sweetness of a nice malt blend (caremel malt) with a little bitterness that lingers. A very nice beer for consumption in the time before christmas. As the years have passed I like it less and less. 10 years ago I loved it for the sweetness but now I don’t like too sweet beers and therefore is turning away from this beer. But it’s still a really good beer.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
UPDATED: NOV 14, 2004 Bottled and draught: As much as I’ve loved this in the past, I must say, that my palate has outgrown this brew. It still looks beautiful, but flavours and aroma now seems very bland and unnuanced. Some vague spiced and malty flavours are present, but not much more. Original rate 3,1: Has a wonderful light amber colour. Aroma is caramel and sweet. In the flavour theres alcahol, caramel and some notes of liquorice. Has a light bitter aftertaste. This tecnically might not be the best beer in the world, but theres something about it that pleases me. First friday 20.59 in november it’s released (and today is the day!!), and theres a big party going on around copenhagen. I’m sure, that i will have an awful lot of these in the next couple of month. Party time!!!

The most sold beer for christmas in Denmark. Looks very good, but tastes of allmost nothing, except for liqorice.

Drinkable yet forgettable. Boring lager. There’s no ’Christmas’ about it whatsoever!
