Ungstrup (31419) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - OCT 13, 2004
A deep red beer with a fine brown head. The aroma is roasted. The flavor is very slightly sour on a sweet background, and the body is thin. An OK beer without being anything special.

bierkoning (11526) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - DEC 7, 2003
Sweet, sugary, cola, caramel and glue. Nothing more, nothing less. This one is at least drinkable.

Countbeer (5587) - Best of E-Town mit 2 Brauhausen, NETHERLANDS - JAN 18, 2012
Bottle: And here’s another Dutch sweet beer, rather go for the Flamish Oud Bruin. A medium off white to light tan head on top of a ruby brown colored beer. Smell sweets, some malts and darker fruits. Taste is also sweet, brown sugars, sweet darker fruits and sweet malts. All these Dutch Oud Bruins’ seem to taste so much like eachother, not interesting and just too sweet.

Hildigöltur (5104) - Křbenhavn, DENMARK - OCT 10, 2004
Reddish brown coloured. Aroma of dark slightly burnt bread. Very sweet and sugary flavour. Quite thin and watery.

jbrus (4991) - Delft, NETHERLANDS - OCT 27, 2002
Cola and light horseblanket aroma. Very dark ruby colour, nice head, good lace. Very sweet and thin, maybe a little cola flavor but that’s it. Very short finish.

altonbrownd (4591) - Chevy Chase, Maryland, USA - FEB 19, 2009
Ruby body with smallish head. Sweet nose. Sweet flavour, more than usual perhaps due to low ABV. Light. Not my thing.

Alengrin (3670) - BELGIUM - AUG 19, 2014
Typical Dutch oud bruin, not to be confused with the totally different Flemish oud bruin style; close to the equally mass-produced Dommelsch Oud Bruin in terms of appearance, aroma and taste, but a bit less sweet and a bit more metallic. Serves its purpose as a daily low alcoholic, I guess.

jerohen (2083) - Bussum, NETHERLANDS - DEC 24, 2002
The worst of the Hertog Jans, but that’s just because of the style: Oud Bruin is a beer that is made by most large Dutch breweries, but it’s not very popular. The sweetness (brown suger) and the practical absence of alcohol gave this brew a reputation of a ’womens beer’ (no offence ;-)). Not a very good style.

Lunkie (1640) - Glen Iris, AUSTRALIA - JUL 3, 2005
Sweet hop malt aroma. Dark red brown colour with poor head. Sweet malt lolly flavour. Fizzy palate.

vanvenlo (1538) - Glen Iris, AUSTRALIA - AUG 28, 2005
28 May 2005 - Big malt aroma and damn sweet. Clear brown-red colour poor head and lacing. Lots of caramel and too sweet given that it lacks some complexity. Sweet lingering malt finish, but too sweet.
