Dark red color, little beige head. Very thin aroma: estery and mildly sweet. Medium bodied. Flavor has medium caramel, estery tones and aftertaste lasts with sweet and mildly roasted tones. rickgordon (3874) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - DEC 17, 2004
Dark ruby brown, big head. Sour nose is what I first interpretate. Sweet, raisiny in flavour with a papery bitterness. Soft malty mouthfeel. A decent example of a Julöl from Pripps. No bitterness, but then its a Vienna. bark (255) - Linköping, SWEDEN - DEC 11, 2004
Bottle. The colour is dark brown and the very thin foam is beige.larsniclas (7040) - Billdal, SWEDEN - DEC 21, 2003
The smell is a little sweet with some malt. At the same time, I found it prickly and weak. Odd.
The carbonation is too powerful, in a sharp way.
The taste is thin and a little sweet. There are notes of malt with some dry hops. The aftertaste is short with some sweetness and almost chemical hops.
This is, for better or for worse, considered as the model for a “julöl” (Christmas brew) for the man on the street in Sweden: Dark brown, sharp carbonation, sticky sweetness and no aftertaste. Which is a shame as there are lots of better alternatives, both imported and domestic.
Dark brown with an ok head.
Thin and way too much carbonation.
A sour and metallic flavour. Yes, it's a Pripps! ante (3373) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - NOV 30, 2003
Dark amber, small bubbly head. Sweet aroma with some malty notes. Sweet and slightly roasty flavour, hints if malt. Not good at all...
