1.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
50 cl alu-can abv 4.5.
Peach-white tight head on an amber-brown body.
Head actually quite durable.
Scents of malts, roasted raisins, grassy meadow.
Tastes malts, crushed raisins, some grass.
Mouthfeel very slick, watery, not spicy, too low carbonated.
Ends in some faint syrup and white bread.
After a good view at start, I at the end became very disappointed.
Ringnes makes 3 under average "Juleøl", including this.
Maybe Tuborg makes their own version next year?

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours a dark copper colour with a small white head. Aroma of chocolate and caramel. This continues in the taste together with some nuts and a light burnt taste. A bit too sweet in the aftertaste, could have wished for some more balance. Light body with a slick mouthfeel. This is a okey low-alcohol christmasbeer, but a bit too sweet for me.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Pours amber brown with a tiny off white head. Diffuse aromas of grain and nuts. Not offensive, grain, nuts, sugar, but too dilute. Tastes more sweet than flavorful.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
50cl can. Pours clear copper with an off-white head. Caramelly aroma with malt and hints of fruits and some lightly roasty notes. Sweet and caramelly with just a light bitterness in the finish. To sweet and flavourless for my taste.
