Can at home, not all that enjoyment
Dark copper, big tanned head. Smells of caramel and malts. Body is medium malty with a bit too much sweetness, soon accompanied by some metallic aftertaste.... not nice. Not much bitterness to call home about eigther

Tall can in Oslo. Brown body with short head. Nose of malts and sweet. Taste is roasty and a bit sour. Overall okay but doesn’t stand out. Merry Christmas.

Oysteib (112) - NORWAY - DEC 23, 2011
Clear, color copper/brown. Quite light, a lot of sweetness, with not quite enough bitterness to balance it. Caramel. Not that bad, smooth, but not spectacular.

tfredvik (1700) - Oslo, NORWAY - NOV 22, 2011
Medium brown body, short-lived head, some lacing. Malty sweet aroma with some sour notes. Medium minus sweetness and an unpleasant grainy Tuborgish sourness. Lightly roasted flavours, some fruitiness and a pinch of metal. Not as watery as other christmas beers, but still the worst I’ve had so far this year.

Juleøl 2011. Good looking off white head. Quite creamy. The body is dark amber. Aroma of caramel, brown sugar, bread and a hint of licorice. The metallic aroma is a turn off though, and makes me wonder if it had been better in a bottle? Sweet taste. I think this edition is better than last years.
