COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Julefred er eit mørkt koparfarga øl i skotsk stil. Ølet har moderate mengder humle for å gje rom for ein rik maltsmak med karamell og litt rosintonar. Det er bryggja spesielt med tanke på salta og tørka julemat, men høver óg som sjelevarmar for ein frossen skrott.

Julefred er korkje pasteurisert eller filtrert og har difor gjærrestar på botnen. Bør lagrast ståande og serverast ved 10-12 grader C. Lat gjæra bli att på flaska.

visionthing (4954) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - DEC 10, 2013
75cl bottle from Meny Kolsås. Pours caramel brown to amber with an off-white head. Malty aroma with fruity and mildly bready and roasty notes, moderate caramel. Medium sweet with mild roasty flavours and a nice bitterness in the finish. Easy to drink and quite flavourful. One of the nicest shop strenght Christmas beers in Norway in my opinion.

On bottle from Ica Hasle, bb date 20710/2016. Brown color, some offwhite foam- quite low carbonation. Medium aroma intensity; malt, hops, dried fruits, slightly roasted notes. Medium body & complexity. Some immediate sweetness, but the following bitterness balances well. Enjoyable

OleR (4804) - Oslo, NORWAY - NOV 24, 2010
0,75L bottle, courtesy of gunnar. Thanks a lot! A tall fine-bubbled lightly tanned head, upon a near-clear brownish red body. Light ashy, dry caramelly malts on the nose. Some fine spice and fruit notes, and a whiff of earthy and peppery hops. Dry, medium strong malt body. A pleasant flavor of dark unsweetened chocolatey and nutty malts with a light sourish twist. A very light caramel sweetness beneath. Also a mild roastedness. Some earthy and lightly spiced hops in the backbone. Not very full, but balanced and complex. Powdery texture. Lasting malt finish. A very good Brown, and top end Norwegian ’groucery store’ beer.

Palme (4330) - Bergen, NORWAY - SEP 5, 2011
Some samples from a 0.75l bottle @ Kai-Sindre’s (InBreak) wedding. This one pours a deep almost murky brown body with a lasting light tanned creamy head. Aroma has lots of dry cocoa, some chocolate malts and it’s lightly sweet. Really nice actually. Lively carbonation, it has a thin and somewhat watery mouthfeel and it’s quite light-bodied. Flavors are also dominated by that dry chocolate/cocoa found in the aroma, light yeast and it ends with some nice mild nutty flavors. Dry and kinda lasting aftertaste. Yeah, I quite liked this one, although it’s not your "standard" Christmas ale. Did suffer a bit on the palate because of only the ABV 4.7%, so I’m really looking forward to trying it’s big brother!

djoeye (4130) - Tromsø, NORWAY - DEC 25, 2014
Aroma of brown malts, caramel, apple’ish hops, berries, spices and dust. Fawn big head, deep amber-brown-red body, somewhat hazy, and particles. Lacing; some fields. Tastes spicy malts, hops, roasted malts, dark bread, roasted raisins, dark caramel notes all over the place. Finishes malty with spices, juniper, oak - a fine "brown" malty ale’ish aftertaste. Normal feel, quite good body. Overall nice and good brew. Good for heavy yuletide dishes. [75cl br btl, abv4.7%, [email protected], BB11/2015, #510, [email protected]]
