Grolsch Oud Bruin is a very thirst-quenching dark beer. It is brewed following the classical brewing method of bottom fermenting. This results in a full, rich taste. Such is the skill of Grolsch. The beer is bestowed a mildly sweet taste by addition of natural sugar.

1/1 5/2007 7:14:22 PM Bottle at Bekeerde Suster. When I asked for this the bartender asked if I was pregnant. It’s a low beer alchol and apparently good for pregnant ladies. (I’m a guy.) It’s very sugary and sweet. Not much too it. Didn’t finish it. Strong caramel flavour.

Alengrin (4529) - BELGIUM - AUG 18, 2014
Typical Dutch oud bruin, which is a totally different thing from Flemish oud bruin and which would be called brown table beer in Belgium; thin, watery body as expected, stable, off-white head, chestnut colour, irony and caramelly main character with not much else. Industrial, but it serves a certain purpose as a daily, domestic beverage, like the Belgian table beers.

Shaney (2423) - Köln / Cologne, GERMANY - OCT 26, 2012
#770 Ein typisches Malzbier, das sich schnörkellos einfach trinken läßt und bei sommerlichen Temperaturen wohl auch ziemlich durstlöschend ist. Etwas dünn zu Beginn entwickelt es eine malzig Süße mit etwas Würze im Abgang. Keine Perle unter den Dunkelbieren, aber auch nicht grottig. Test vom 15.11.2008, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 8,8,9,9,9,9 - 8,75
