500ml can poured into a Tulip glass. Appearance is clear dark copper colored with a large frothy beige head, that reduced quickly leaving some lacing. Aroma of metallic notes, minerals, caramel and bread. Flavours of processed sugar, alcohol, syrup loaf, caramel and toffee.Taste is medium-light sweet and medium bitter. Palate is medium-light bodied, slightly sticky texture and average carbonation. Pripps Julöl is overall a poor unbalanced Christmas beer, the aroma is unpleasant and taste is dominated by sweetness.

Köpt på baren på elite hotell i Jönköping. Skrapat bort datum medvetet då den uppenbarligen gått ut. Påminner närmast om en belgisk dubbel Linnet (1941) - Karlstad, SWEDEN - MAR 8, 2013
Skunky malty aroma and murky Brown/reddish colour, medium head.
Flavour is the same, thoroughly disappointing.
Palate is unpleasant.

Can from Systembolaget. Clear dark amber with an off-white head. Aroma is sweet, malty and caramel. Flavor is medium sweet and light bitter. Sweet finish. 231212 rarbring (2290) - Linköping, SWEDEN - DEC 5, 2012
Aroma: The smell is weak and mainly dominated by sweet tones, like candid sugar, some malt and a metallic presence.olsvammel (7313) - Örebro, SWEDEN - NOV 9, 2012
Appearance: The beer pours with a beige foam that quickly resides leaving little marks on the glass. The color is dark amber/brown.
Taste: The taste is very much dominated by a bit too much sweetness and a metallic feel. A quickly receding bitterness is noted when swallowing.
Palate: The liquid is rather carbonated and gives a soda feeling (like "julmust" - a sweet typical Swedish malt non-alcoholic soda).
Overall: There are better ones!
Note: Can 500 ml Reviewed 2010-01-03.
UPDATED: NOV 11, 2012 Bottle as a sample from the brewery. It has a very weak smell with a note of metal and some wort bread. Similar taste, also weak. Drinkable but not exciting at all.
