Surprisingly good and light dark lager Christmas beer. Whatever the label says, it's a dark lager perfect for when you're thirsty. Good with salty food!

500ml can as Pripps Blå Julöl III from Systembolaget Kiruna, kindly brought to Tromsø by djoeye. Clear copper coloured body to an-off-white head quickly reduced to a filmy layer. Minimal lacing. Mild brown malty nose. More burnt than roasted caramel to the taste buds, some moderate impact of dried fruits to the ending with vague hints of cardboard. Medium bodied. Easy to drink. Unvaried, but not that bad (shared with Frau Eva, Tromsø 25.12.2014). Vighals (3996) - Sørumsand, NORWAY - DEC 24, 2014
Mørk orangebrun klar med fingerhøyt beige skum. Lukter kandissukker og malt. Smaker sukkersøtt med en tanke bittersøt brent sukker. Kort. djoeye (4607) - Tromsø, NORWAY - NOV 23, 2014

Dark brown body (extremely dark if amber) with a good off white to fawn head on. Average lacing.
Aroma; dusty hops, flowerdust, mild malts, bitter sour berry peels, faint sour metallic notes.
Taste; dark mild syrupy malts, caramel chocolate juice, small dry hop notes, continues into aftertaste.
Feels easy on palate. Drinkable, but pretty spiceless.

50cl can from Systembolaget, Strömstad. Pours clear mahogany with a tan head. Malty and caramelly aroma with just hints of roast and hops. Fairly sweet and caramelly with some almost sourish and metallic notes. Quite similar to lots of Norwegian shop strength Christmas beer. Hardly impressive, best to avoid, but drinkable if one has to to.
