A dark amber beer with a light rich beige head the leaves much on the glass.

The smell is malty with dried fruits, which is well reflected in the taste which has tones of apricots, caramel and a malty richness. A nice bitter tone complemented with acid. Not as sweet as most traditional "julöl".

Good envigouring carbonation.

The colour is dark amber; the two finger airy head is beige. Lots of lacing.

The inviting smell is a bit malty and lightly roasted. Worth, hints of spices. Some nuts and raisins.

The taste got a mild metallic-bitter background flavour. There are some sweet malty flavours of raisins and dried fruits. Medium body. The aftertaste is medium bitter with notes of fresh fruits and loaf.

The carbonation is medium strong with lots of bubbles. The liquid is mid-smooth.

This is a beer that begs to accompany the Swedish Christmas cuisine with those fat, smoked and salty flavours, bringing a good balance between character and drinkability.

It pours a ruby red colour inte the glass. The head is creamy white and long lasting. Smells alot of malt, hints of caramel and some fruits too. The taste is also malty and with hints of fruit. I find it a little thin and watery. It also have a little metallic aftertaste, very little bitterness in the aftertaste too.
