The smell certainly doesn't give away the taste. I thought the beer would be more bitter, but I was pleasantly surprised. THE BEER BARON (275) - Wisconsin, USA - JUN 10, 2001

Brewed in two versions for the norwegian market. One at 4,5% and one at 6,5%. Both comes in slightly different verions each year. Aass Juleøl is one of the better norwegian 'Juleøl'. But only the stronges version is drinkable. The 4,5% version is the 6,5 plus water. A 'juleøl' should be on the sweet side, with some spice character. One excellent german alternative: Rostock Hansebrau. Oakes (18873) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 20, 2000
Labelled as Christmas beer because Vienna-lagers are the traditional Christmas style in Scandinavia. This is one of the better examples, with a reasonably complex character. PhillyBeer2112 (2896) - Oviedo, Florida, USA - MAY 3, 2000
Labelled as a Christmas beer - unsure why. The description above
is pretty much my review. A really good beer.
