villevav (509) - FINLAND - OCT 14, 2013
Kuparinruskea, kirkas. Tiheä, joskin nopeaa häipyvä vaahto. Tuoksussa makeaa maltaisuutta. Maku on mieto ja siinä on makeaa, limppumaista maltaisuutta. Suutuntumaltaan Joulu III on keskiolutmaisen kevyt. Kyllä tämä toki kotimaiset vaaleat lagerit voittaa, mutta ei tätä "kunnon" jouluoluiden korvikkeena juo. Varsin virkistävä ja helposti lähestyttävä tumma lager "keskarin" ystäville. Ruokakaupan parhaita kotimaisia, joka tosin ei kovin suuri meriitti ole.

33 cl bottle @ Nurmo as ”Lapin Kulta Joulu III”. Rated on 09.11.2008
Aroma is rather light with sweetish malt and some caramel. Flavour is sweet and malty with roasted notes, some vegetables, metal and hints of chocolate. And you call this a dunkel?

Pours pale golden color with a small head. Aroma of grass, starch and grain. Flavor of mild malts, grain and hay.

This, now retired, Lapin Kulta Talviolut ("Winter beer") was sold as a chrismas seasonal beer. In 2011 this is replaced by Lapin Kulta Jouluolut Luomu (Organic Christmas Beer).

330ml bottle from Sale

Light, bulky dark lager. Can’t locate the christmasness in it, though.

White 0,33l bottle. Actually says jouluolut on the bottle. It means that it is supposed to be a christmas beer. Anyway... the off white head goes down fast but what is left of it in the end is rather stubborn. Malty aroma with notes of vegetables and caramel. Hajussa tuntuu jostain syystä myös olevan lihakuutiota. :) Flavour is some roasted malts.

Nordcore (1698) - Lyngen alps, NORWAY - OCT 16, 2010
(Lapin kulta Joululut III?) Deep red with a small white head. Aroma; sweet malty with a hoppy sence. Flavor; sweet malt and some dark fruits.

lusikka (7833) - Tampere, FINLAND - SEP 28, 2010
330 ml white bottle. Rated @ 23.11.2009.
Brown colour with a beige head. Weak aroma of malts and some grains. Flavour of malts and bread. Light bodied with a thin mouthfeel. Drinkable.

wunderbier (1434) - Tampere, FINLAND - AUG 26, 2010
from old notes Red-tinted brown hue under a fluffy, buff head. Moderate malts with raisins and brown sugar; grassy and toasty on the side. Soft malty sweetness, a bit of hop-prickle then toasty and perhaps a bit of paper. Fluffy carbonation, oily texture and a touch thick.

Somewhat surprisingly flavorful, even if slightly below average.

50 cl can, best before April 2009.
