COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Bottle. Frothy lightbrown good mostly deminishing head. Dark red-amber wonderfull colour. Modsearte malty very light hoppy aroma. Light sweet flavor. Average finish. Oily but thin palate. Not as sweet as danish "Hvidtøl" but that makes it a very nice beer.

pivnizub (8805) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - DEC 24, 2009
Bottle: Clear, deep-amber coloured, rather quickly collapsing fluffy "dirty" head; faint caramelly-fruity nose; light sweetish flavour, light bodied as well; delicate sweetish-malty finish. Not too bad......

JorisPPattyn (7889) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - JAN 25, 2005
Coca-Cola colour and ditto foam; just a bit more stable. Subdued sweet nose, caramely, vaguely grassy. Quite sweet start, immediately diminishing to more neutral, quite woody taste, not acidic. Flavour of water-colour paint, and milk sugar finish. Bit of tartness, rather dry after the initial sweetness. Knowing Dutch Oud Bruin and Flemish Oud bruin are different is one thing, experiencing it quite another. As far as the Dutch go, this one ranks amongst the better. Among the least sweet, too.
