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.

I really never thought I would rate something this low, but I have to stick it to this "beer" (innocently ordered off a menu in Amsterdam). Syrupy sweetness (think Coca-Cola) with nothing resembling beer appearance, flavor, or mouthfeel. Avoid like the plague.

Sweet malty taste with a tinge of milk chocolate and caramel and a sweet sticky finish with no bitterness to speak of. A malt beverage with 2.5 % ABV.

2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Dirty yellow-brown head, gone in secs; beer like dark cola. Liquorice sweets ("zoete drop"), slightly herbal aroma. Quite sweet tablebeer, again sweet liquorice flavour, ever so slightly sour finish (probably the CO²). Very thin texture and light mouthfeel, appropriately boring. Not much else to say. J., Flemish Oud bruin and Dutch Oud bruin have at most a colour in common.
