Danish: S er det juletid og dermed ogs tid til at nyde nogen af de dejlige julel som vi plejer. Men i r er der derudover mulighed for at nyde en lokal julel fra Frederiksodde haandbryggerlaug. Denne gang har de to fstningsbryggere valgt at lave en lidt utraditionel julel, der i modstning til de mange strke julel kun ligger p lidt over 5 %. Dette gr at man sagtens kan nyde den uden at blive tung i hovedet. Det er en undergret l, der er brygget p pilsner malt, aroma malt, rug malt og hvedemalt, som tilsammen bidrager med en passende maltsdme. Humlen der er brugt til julellen er en god blanding af de bedste amerikanske humle sorter. Der er blandt andet brugt de to aromatiske humle sorter Amarillo og Cascade som giver en duft og smag af fyrnle og citrusfrugter. rets julebryg er med andre ord en spndende sammenstning mellem de sde elementer fra malten og den amerikanske humle som udover den gode smag giver den en kraftig bitterhed, som modspil til den gode julemad. Motivet p rets julebryg, er i modstning til de andre l fra Frederiksodde Haandbryggerlaug, ikke fra Fredericia, men er derimod tegnet af den danske kunstner, Vilhelm Pedersen (1820-1859) der blev bermt for sine illustrationer til H.C. Andersens eventyr. Tegningen p etiketten stammer netop fra H.C. Andersens eventyr Nissen hos spkhkeren.

JensenTaster (1719) - DENMARK - MAR 4, 2008
(on bottle, thanx to thewolf) Dark colored, beige head. Fruity, minty and a hardpowered maltaroma. Theres an estery and hoppy feel to this, as in US strong ales, even though UK types are used. Even though it has a dark and malted profile, the hops are floating above it all, givin great balance. Warmth up and gets quite peppery in the end. Very nice beer indeed.

Bottle. Cloudy orange-brown colour. Fruity, pine hoppy aroma. Nice mouthfeel. The flavour has a very soft pine fruity hoppy spiced flavour. Great brew!

[thank you, Myrup]
Pours a light muddy red with a great creamy yellowish head - with super lacing. Aroma is very nicely hoppy, grapefruit and a background of sweet caramel. Super-dry mouthfeel. Flavour i nicely hoppy and includes some spices amongst roasted and caramel maltiness. Super surprise!

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JAN 9, 2008
(Bottle 50 cl) Courtesy of Myrup. Hazy, dark brown, muddy and opaque with a huge sediment and a creamy, beige head. Fresh, citrusy aroma hops in the nose. Medium body with lightly sweet caramel accents and then this distinct citrusy hoppiness that also leaves a dose of bitterness. If it wasnt bottom fermented I wouldve considered this an APA. Not bad at all, and a very unusual choice for a Christmas beer. 281207

Bottled. Murky amber coloured. Light brown head. Citrus, flowers, herb s and ligth caramel in the aroma. Flavour as well has the same notes. Is somewhat citric as well. Medium bodied. dry. Sharply bitter in the end, which unfortunately makes it a bit unbalanced.

Emil (6065) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - DEC 29, 2007
Bottle. A dark red brown beer with a big beige head. Dusty caramel malt, heavy hopped, pine, peach aroma and taste. Medium body with a dry finish. Even though its not realy a X-mas beer but more like a IPA, Ill drink this for X-mas anytime.

yespr (44223) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - DEC 29, 2007
50 cL bottle, thanks to Myrup. Pours hazy brown with a dense light brown head. Slight soapy fruity/floral hoppy aroma. Flavour is dry hoppy with a fruity note and a sligt soapy note towards the finish. Mellow bitter finish of a quite fruity hops note and little bitterness. Slight liqourice edge in the far finish. Unusual hoppy Christmas brew, I wonder if this was intended as an X-mas brew initially...
