There is something about this beer, about the tradition and the anticipation when it gets released every year. It’s just a part of Christmas.
That being said, the beer while nice is not great. Roasted malts, caramel and spice are the flavors of this copper colored brew.

Can at Maria Pension near Cluj, Romania, March 2013. As Tuborg Christmas Brew. Clear ruby-brown with white ring, sugar, candy, a little malt in the nose, bitter, lagery and a little syrupy taste. Light-to-medium body, carbonated and not very christmasy.

Greatest marketing (hoax) to ever see the light in Denmark, and that’s saying a lot when it comes to Carlsberg. On it’s own it’s a drinkable brew, but in general comparison, it is just bland and uninteresting, at best. The head vanishes before you kan say "Skaal" and the taste is medium all the way and kind of sweet and sour. Aftertaste is somewhat bitter but with a caramel touch. Its really not that complex of a beer (not that a brew has to be), but keep in mind this beer is the hype of the year in Denmark the day it is released to the public and in bars. J-Day is a day of celebration only surpassed by new years. But in reality its not really about the brew itself. That’s just an excuse to go nuts really.
Well a genius psykosocial move by Carlsberg and a marketing stunt like no other. But the beer itself is just o.k and basically a stronger and maltier version of Tuborg Green.

Fin og udmærket øl men uden de store ambitioner. Derfor også kedelig og hverdagsagtig.
