Can from Systembolaget. Best before date May 2012. I thought I better drink this before getting far too old. Didn’t really like it last Christmas, but with low expectations it was a bit better now than expected. Maybe gained of beeing stored a bit. However a bit too sweet. gyllenbock (10033) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - OCT 29, 2012
Sample at a tasting at Systembolaget in October 2012. (labeled as Pripps Blå Jul) Clear copper with a small white head. Sweet with caramel, malt and some dark bread. Drinkable but not exciting at all. mzaar (3747) - Varberg, SWEDEN - JAN 6, 2012

Sample at a tasting at Systembolaget in October 2012. I am not sure if this is the same beer as Pripps Julöl, but with a new name?
Clear copper with a small white head. Sweet with caramel, malt and some dark bread. Drinkable but not exciting at all.
En högst ordinär julöl. Varken dofter eller smaker sticker ut. Knäck och sirap, och mycket vattnigt. berlinoise2go (689) - NORWAY - DEC 16, 2011
Bottle (50cl) at Arlanda airport, Stockholm. Small offwhite head, quickly diminishing. Clear, dark brown colour. Aroma of malt, cola, caramel, hint of licorice. Body is medium/light, average carbonation. Semisweet taste with malt and cola, finish is papery. Best consumed cold - as the beer warms up the sweetness appears more cloying and less ’integrated’, and the beer appears more like a mix of lager and cola. BeerSkull (1372) - SWEDEN - NOV 8, 2011
Aroma of roasted malt and possibly some chocolate. The taste is quite sweet and soft, and consists mostly of malt, but there are also some spices in the background. Fairly good and easy to drink!

Bottle. A dark brown colour with a high tanned head. An aroma of caramel, fruit and spicies. The taste is sweet with a light bitter finish. A medium body and avarage carbonation. Usally I do not like Pripps beer but this one is ok. Koelschtrinker (22074) - KÃ¶ln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAY 8, 2011
Malziger, sehr künstlich süßer Antrunk, der auf Süßstoff hindeutet. Dazu passt das besonders zum Ende hin auftretende dumpfe und trockene Aroma. Weiter süß, zu süß. Dahinter wenig herb, unspektakulär taucht eine einzelne Kräuternote kurz auf. Ölig, zum Ende gar leicht muffig, dazu wie beschrieben trocken. Tut nicht Not! 8/6/5/5/7/4

A very average xmas beer. Dark but transparent when held against a light. Malty nose. Taste is sweet and malty with only little bitterness.
