Slight malts, sugar, sweet, that’s it.

Ruby/brown beer with a fast disappearing off-white head.

Sweet and malty, nothing else really.

0.3 l bottle from local AH, bottled just over a month ago. Clear, very dark red with a medium large, soapy, quickly diminishing, tan head. Musty, sweetish-malty aroma of nuts, sugar and caramel. Sweetish-malty taste of sugar and caramel, followed by a short, minimally bitter finish. Medium body, slightly creamy to sticky mouthfeel, soft to average carbonation. Less sweet than expected, apart from a musty note in the aroma quite enjoyable. One-dimensional of course, nevertheless okay.

Bottle at home. Aroma of sugary malt, caramel, sugar, coca-cola. Flavour is insane sugary sweetness. Weak watery body. I wouldn’t force this upon my worst enemy.

Of all the styles in beer this is the only one I detest. So sweet and sickening.

The beer is pitch black at first sight. A little more investigation reveals a red is glow. The beer pours a thick layer of light brown foam, which disappears to leave almost nothing. The smell isn’t that great. It smells oxidizes and has a metal hint. There is a unpleasant bitternes. The first taste impression is: added sugars. The beer tastes unnaturally sweet. It is to sweet, it isn’t in balance. There isn’t much good to say about the taste. I expected a brown ale like beer, don’t ask me why. This is a moldy old beer, the name doesn’t surprise me (oud bruin = old brown). There is a bitterness in the beer that reminds me of the fact that I am drinking beer. The palate is also rubbish. The amount of gas is to low. Blegh.

Dark brown, no foam. A: sweaty socks, cane sugar, caramel, hint of prune, hint of cough syrup. T: very sweet, almost liquid sugar. Sour undertone, bock. Development is sweet. Low abv works against it. Aftertaste is sweet.

Appearance: Deep dark color with a tan head. Ok lacing. Aroma: Very Sweet Caramel. Taste: very sweet caramel, brown sugar, rasisins light bitterness. Medium light to medium body and below average carbonation,.Oily texture. It’ might be toosweet, too one dimensional and yet I can appreciate it moer as the standard Heineken. .The only problem for me is, is this a beer while it’s very close to a good German Malt drink.

Dark brown color with nice light brown foam head. Very thin smell and very non beer like taste. A lot of caramel without being too sweet. Impressive, but not worth getting your hopes up, since you thought you were buying a beer. (However the Heineken tag could have warned you).

Brown color with okay beige head. Aroma of metal and caramel. Taste of caramel, malt, sugar. Tastes mostly like karamalz. Drinkable, but just... meh.

As bad as all the reviews suggest. I should have read them first. It does not taste like beer in any way at all. It tastes like chalky mineral water with caramel and sugar added. Even as a non-beer drink it is not nice. Aparenty a traditional product can be realy realy bad.
