COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Nils Oscar Brown Ale är en rödbrun överjäst öl med rik maltkaraktär. Den har en lätt knäckig ton från karamellmalt, en rostad avslutning samt balanserad beska från de båda humlesorterna Fuggles och Amarillo. Nils Oscar Brown Ale passar utmärkt till mustiga grytor, grillat kött och även sallad. Naturligtvis går det alldeles utmärkt att njuta av en Nils Oscar Brown Ale utan något som helst till. Det kan hända att en vacker utsikt och en skön fåtölj kan förbättra stunden något, men det ska vi låta vara osagt. Drick och njut!

Bottle 0,33 l. Clear brown, short beige head. Nose is malty, some dry coffee and cocoa. Flavor is pretty light and could pass as a dark lager or dryish dunkel. Doesn’t pack the full chocolate and coffee notes that I usually like in my brown ales. Not a bad beer, but mediocre for the style. Fizzy carb, quite light body.

Karamellig och en trevlig och god Brown Ale. Lagom söt och med en behaglig eftersmak.

str0mma (21) - Gothenburg, SWEDEN - MAY 26, 2012
1.5 y old bottle which also leaves only one bottle left in my storage. A Brown Ale that doesn’t taste like 1.5 y ago at all. Both the aroma and taste of hops has faded even though they’re still there. The aroma is most toffee and malt. It’s looking very nice, dark brown body with a nice lasting light brown head. Taste is caramel, malt and there’s also hints of amarillo. It has matured by time. Aftertaste is spelled amarillo, not very intense but it’s there.

Cunningham (4342) - Halden, NORWAY - JAN 22, 2012
Bottle from Systembolaget. Dark brown colour with a light beige head. A bit weak aroma but it contains some sweet dark malt and a bit roasted malt. Some sweetness in the flavour. Like toffe and cocolate. Mild roasted and light hoppy.

rosenbergh (6588) - Helsinki, FINLAND - NOV 21, 2011
330 ml bottle. BBE Apr 11. Thanks Timo.
Dark brown colour with small creamy tan head. Roasted/toasted caramel malt, some dry hoppy bitterness, chocolate and liquorice in aroma. Flavour is very dry with roasted/toasted malt, liquorice, moderately bitter hops and mild notes of coffee. Ash in aftertaste. Surprisingly tasty for a Brown Ale.

stefannilssons (1455) - SWEDEN - NOV 19, 2011
En välbalanserad öl med huvudsaklig maltig ton, beskan gör dock inte mycket väsen av sig. Men det är i huvudsak en ganska så lätt och slät sak som jag hade kunnat dricka fler gånger.

Vignale (2004) - Malmö, SWEDEN - AUG 30, 2011
Rödbrun färg med ett cm-tjockt skum som bildar ett lock. Blommig, lätt parfymerad doft och nybakt mörkt bröd. Viss sötma med lite karamell, blommigt åt det lite unkna hållet som Fuggles bidrar med men också en tydlig lätt parfymerad kådig ton av Amarillon, lite bränd eftersmak och aningens metallsmak, en lätt behaglig efterbeska. Fin balans mellan malt och de båda humlesorterna. Inte någon typisk brown ale kanske men en snygg nytolkning som jag gillade.

jesperhammer (2843) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUN 20, 2011
17-JUN-2011, bottle @Erik. Pours brown with low head. Very malty in the form of bread, charamel, chocolate and nuts. Not much hops here but a long soft malty ending. I guess it does have some age, Erik? Well, anyway it is quite mellow and nice.

Chiswick (159) - Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 8, 2011
has a brown cola-like colour and quite clear liquid with a white creamy minimal head mainly focused on the sides of the glass. not a special looking beer. the aroma is surprisingly complex with coffee, malt, a bit of caramel, chocolate, a roasty feel to it. the problem is that the aromas aren’t that strong and are rather raw in a weak way. has medium bitterness and sourness which i find surprising. also light sweetness with a happy sour twist. a very interesting taste spectrum for a brown ale of this %. the body is light with a thin texture but that works well with the bitter twist of the taste. a fizzy and lively carbonation supports this. overall this is a nice beer that made a statement of it’s own, but didn’t have that much power to impress me more. still, a nice mixture of things going on.
