1.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
Bottled. A very dark brown flat looking beer with no head. Thea roma is pretty much non-existant, and the taste is like sugared water. Caramel notes dominate. Little quality and little to enjoy. Not refreshing in any way.

Black, brown brew. Too much sugar. Way too sweet. Tastes like non-cold cola without bubbles :)
Don’t like it.

UPDATED: AUG 3, 2006 Happy happy joy joy. The beer, unfortunately drank from bottle (shame on me) has a big bouquet of flawors, ranging from Dumle to tar sauna. Beat that if you can. Long aftertaste which may be intidimatingly sweet.

Dark color (caramel) very thin head, the first thing in the aroma is cola to me!, very thin, it is many years an old tradition fore "on age lady’s) and my grandmother used to drink thise always , finely i had the guts to rate it.
I understand that the low alcohol and the sweed taste did a special thing that time,..but now its done.

This beer has a dark brown body - hue apperance and a fine light brown scum collar. I have drunk the beer from the bottle and it had a lot of carbonic acid. The initial flavor taste is sweet with a sweet afther tast.

1.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
Sweetish, malty, dark. Too sweet, cola feeling, light bodied, weak. One try is enough.

An oud bruin, eh? And I thougt "Oud" was a protected term in the EU ... guess not -- or guess someone should be suing Heineken! Although this isn’t the worst beer in Heineken’s quiver, it certainly has nothing, other than the color, that approaches what one would think of for an "oud" style beer. Way too smooth. Hugh bubbles producing a fizzy head that dissipates to nothing almost immediately. Sour? I think not! A malty aroma definitely with a bit o’ dms, perhaps, but nothing approaching lactic or acetic sourness! Watery. No body to speak of. A metallic aftertaste. In the end, definitely less than the sum of its parts.

2.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle. Dark amber brown colour; fizzy but small, quickly dissipating head. Sour, malty aroma. Sweet and watery flavour. Not too bad; I’d actually rather have this than a "normal" Heineken.

Bottle: Very dark amber coloured, unvisible head; sweet malt, a bit roasted or toasted, in the nose; faint sweetish, malty flavour, a bit sourish (citrusy ?), too; watery and thinnish; short, sweet finish.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottled (BB 01/2007)
Dark ruby color, small ruby head. Malty and sugary aroma. Ditto the taste: very sugary sweet with malty notes. Aftertaste is mainly malty. Carbonated mouthfeel. Not so bad as a low alco, just very very sweet.
