Danish: Juleøllet kan godt blive for sødt og kagekrydret. De volumiøse og fede retter den danske jul er kendetegnet ved, vil faktisk hellere have en sprød, humlet og frisk øl. Hoppy Christmas er en 5,9 % IPA med masser af appelsin. Tørhumlet selvfølgelig.
No more sweet sticky christmas cakes bottled and labelled as the most appropriate for the season. Rich and fatty foods want hoppy, bitter and fresh beers! It´s an orangy, lemony fresh IPA. Yeah, that’s right – we used a load of oranges! 5,9 % alk gives the beer just the right punch and the malty back bone mingles well with the aromatic and bitter hops. We used Chinook and Galaxy by the way. Dry hopped of course. Hoppy Christmas everyone!

Bottle 0.33l from Angleterre, Helsinki. Colour is copper with white head. Aromas and flavours are fruits, grassy hops and malts. Quite dry, one-dimensional and dull.

Hazy amber, thick white froth. Grapefruit aroma with notes of pine. Flavour has juicy grapefruit with good malt backing. Crisp, clean and dry. Nice.

DerGantzel (139) - Aarhus, DENMARK - NOV 14, 2015
Fresh hoppy aroma. Frothy white head, unclear golden appearance. Crispy taste with medium sweetness and bitterness. Soft carbonation, medium body. Not very much Christmas in the bottle, I find it more like a regular fresh hoppy pale ale.

rekvium (160) - Odense C, DENMARK - NOV 5, 2015
From tap. Pours hazy amber with an off white head. Aroma of caramel, resin, spruce, very light citrus, light hay. Taste is light resin, caramel, bit of citrus. Too much caramel/crystal for my taste.

Beergaard (242) - Aarhus, DENMARK - MAY 19, 2015
Not your traditional sweet and spicy christmas beer. Clear golden orange beer with a red tint. Floral and hoppy on the nose with notes of orange and something slightly tropical. Taste is moderately bitter with notes of citrus, orange and some malt. Not bad at all.

Draught at Fermentoren, Copenhagen, 14.1.2015. Cloudy dark amber. Mildly hoppy, tropical fruit aroma, very bitter, a little black pepper in the mouth. Medium body, quite carbonated, rather short hoppy finish.

Draught . Orange pour with offwhite head. Very nice fruity aroma. Taste has strong notes of orange which is kinda odd. Light pine and citrus.
