1.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Caramel aromas, brown color, non persistent light brown head, really sweet taste, no hints of sourness at all, Light body, medium carbonated.
Definitellly not what i understand an Oud Bruin should be. Maybe mixing it up with a pilsner, as said in the description, would improve it.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
4-Jan-2012 (Warners at the Bay - $4) Light sweet choc malt and very light hop fruit aroma. Dark brown colour, ordinary head out of bottle and no lacing. Simple sweet choc malt flavour. Light bittering, syrupy palate and a stale sick malt aftertaste. I’m glad this beer was a cheapie, but l guess this may true to oud bruin.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Ruby body, persistant tight white head.
Aroma of malt extract and caramel, bit of a vinous red berry edge to it.
Light bodied, lowish carbonation, drying on the finish.
Very sweet up front, almost cloyingly so. Caramel, cola flavours, drops away quickly, funky sort of almost lactic twang on the finish. Low bitterness.
Way too sweet, something to balance out of the sweetness (bitterness/sourness) would be nice. No my thing that’s for sure.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Home 20110529 (30 cl bottle): A clear rubish-red beer with a good brown foam layer. Hardly no smell (malty/caramel and sweet). A strong sweet taste with some brown-malltyness. In the finish slighty hopbitter but still sweet and sticky. Not so nice sweetness.
