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.

Good clear brown with a long lasting beige head. Quite malty nose, with malt dominating the palate as well. It is pretty sweet, but it’s not too cloying and adds to the overall " full rich " taste. I liked this!

JorisPPattyn (9474) - Ursel, 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.

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
