Flaske. Klar karamellfarget. Fyldig skumtopp moderat karbonert. Smaker metall,røstet malt og noe tørket frukt. Er det egentlig noe poeng med juleøl på 3.5%?

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle from ICA Maxi at Eurostop outside of Örebro. Light bready smell with a weird aroma, sulfur but more like outdoor toilette. Similar taste. Not that clean.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
*Bottle from Hemköp in Stockholm. Nice round and quite deep. Fresh but malty. Hints of dried fruit, spices, very easy to drink. Malty depth - especially for this ABV. Round and malty-caramelly brew.

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Beautiful foam that is lasting. The aroma is full of both hard roasted malt and raisins. The taste varies over dried fruits, like raisins, prunes and dates. It is perhaps a little early (or late) to rate Christmas beer, but Mariestads Julebrygd can suitably be drunk all year round. It is clearly comparable with Belgian beer, for its yeast have this peculiar richness and taste as just Belgians have expertise in brewing.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Clear nutty color with a fine off white head. Caramel malty, nutty and a bit fruity aroma. Medium body. Tad sweet and a moderate bitterness. Average carbonation. Caramel malty, a bit bready and mild fruity flavor. Quite decent Swedish 3,5% beer.
[Bottle from EuroCash at Svinesund, Sweden]

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Takie sobie piwo ale o ladnej bordowej etykiecie, ciemno brazowej barwie, pianie sredniej ale mimo to trwalej. W smaku gorycz z palonym cukrem, slodowo toffi ale z domieszka solidnego chmielu. Dziwne zestawienie, nieco ciastezek korzennych tez wyczulem.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Malt and wort in the fragrance. The same applies to the taste. But a little watery, too. Light bitterness in the aftertaste that fills the upper part of the mouth briefly. Not nearly as good. Follow me @ Kung av öl @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings.
