Bottle from Systembolaget. Clear reddish brown with a lasting beige head. Aroma is sweet, malty, caramel and moderate hoppy. Flavor is medium sweet and moderate bitter. Dry and moderate bitter finish. A nice surprise. 081212 rarbring (2295) - Linköping, SWEDEN - DEC 5, 2012
Aroma: Smell of dried citrus, some grassy, fruity tones. A metallic hint.Furseth (2165) - Kungälv, SWEDEN - DEC 4, 2012
Appearance: An amber, dark read clear liquid, rather much foam slowly settling down, with remaining lacerations.
Taste: Clear bitterness but rather fresh and not sweet as most Swedish "julöl" (yule ale, christmas beer).
Palate: Moderate to small sized bubbles, very refreshingly to drink.
Overall: In all a good clean winter brew.

Am a fan of Wisbys beer but this years Julbrygd tended to be a bit too flat for my taste but is still a very good beer compared with a lot of others Ktwse (5026) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 1, 2012
Pours clear brown with minimal tan head. Aroma of citrus hops, spices, some malt. Taste is quite hoppy with an initial fruity sweetness followed by a gentle lingering bitterness. Light body, low to medium carbonation. A bit boozy.

(Bottle). Sweet malt aroma with a fruity tone. The taste is fruity malt and hops. Fresh and bitter hops in the finish, which also has elements of slightly smoky roasted malt. Good and nice beer! wkalle (263) - SWEDEN - FEB 12, 2012
Pours dark brown with a large brown head which lasts long and laces the glass. Aroma of raisins with a complex background. Smoky flavor yet fruity and refreshing, nicely balanced. NordicV (2361) - Malmö, Sweden, SWEDEN - DEC 30, 2011
Mahognyfärgad öl med kraftigt ljusbrunt skum Doft av rostad malt, knäck och mörkt bröd. Bra balans mellan knäckig sötma och rostad bitterhet. Klarar av julbordet på ett bra sätt. thomat (3930) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - DEC 29, 2011
Dark amber with a medium tan head. malty with spisy notes. malt, hops, spices and chocolate. Medium body with a balanced, bitter finish. Redpointed (69) - Colorado, USA - DEC 24, 2011
Aroma was sort of lacking, nice malty appearance. Taste led with a burst of hop bitterness, but quickly faded into an almost too sweet malty finish. Not bad but not my favorite.
