ClubGonzo (4164) - Bergen, NORWAY - JUL 15, 2012
Bottle. Light bronze body, small white head. Nose is nuts, roasty caramel and hints of something reminiscent of manure (first!) and grains. But in a good way. :-) Taste is burnt sugar, nuts, hints of the characteristic cellar must (which I often find in Swedish micros and most particularly in Nils Oscar’s beers) and wood. Dry finish with hints of caramel. Smooth and nice mouthfeel. Pleasant, though not very challenging.

Bov (9683) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - JUL 1, 2012
courtesy of Per - clear dark reddish beer under a persistent beige foam; pretty aromatic nose of flowers and caramel; medium-bodied, quite tasty; some late earthy tartness and a low bitterness; long and charming flowery and earthy finish - very nice

berkshirejohn (4645) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - JUN 27, 2012
33cl bottle from Westholme Stores, Goring. Deep amber in colour with a thin cream head; the aroma is amazing, a fresh almond croissant, complete with a dusting of icing sugar - sweet and malty; soft in the mouth with fruity malt flavours, that don’t reaaly live up to the aroma; and dry, herbal, bitterness to finish. I’m not entirely sure that this is an Alt, but it’s very good whatever it is.

33 cl bottle from Systembolaget, BB SEP 2012, sampled on June 25, 2012
Clear copper "Trocadero" color, medium sized lasting tan head, rather pretty and pleasing to the eye. Sweet, candy, fruity, herbal, malty, caramel, grainy, refreshing scent. Malty, metallic, caramel, bitter, herbal, hoppy, bread, grainy taste. Dry grainy finish. Medium mouthfeel, medium bitterness that is a bit dry and chalky. Nice, drinkable, fresh, malty, tasty.

BeerSkull (1309) - SWEDEN - JUN 16, 2012
Aroma and taste of grainy malt, raisins, fruit and hops. Bitterness is nice and a little grassy.

mike_77 (3327) - Breda, NETHERLANDS - JUN 8, 2012
Copper colour. Malty aroma with a sweet fruity edge. Nice malty taste with fruity hop in the finish. Great thirst quencher.

dnoaksson (700) - , SWEDEN - JUN 3, 2012
Det är möjligt att produktnamnet är en sublim form av självironi. Det är också möjligt att den ska tolkas på ett mer raffinerat sätt än vad den initialt inbjuder till (typ att ölet är en omstart av ens inre operativsystem). Men Ctrl Alt Delete är det snabbkommando jag önskar rikta mot hela smakupplevelsen för att se om Nils Oscar har infiltrerats av något spionprogram. Hur ska man annars förklara att den laggar så?

Marduk (2885) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUN 3, 2012
330ml bottle. Clear dark yellow color. Thin layer of froth. Good lacing. Hops, metallic, bit dusty notes in aroma. Slight bitter, hops in flavor.

Rune (8348) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JUN 3, 2012
330ml bottle bought at Systembolaget Kiruna. Concrete-like, off-white head, some of it remaining all the way. Laces well. Clear, golden-brown body. Malty aroma, nuances of bread and nuts. Malty taste giving way to leafy hops and added by mild spices and a bite of almond. Bittersweet on the swallow. Feels stronger than the abv suggests. Loses some of its flavour after a while, still good drinking. Gets an extra score for the name (Tromsø, 28.05.2012).

Vignale (2147) - Malmö, SWEDEN - JUN 3, 2012
Härlig doft av nybakt ljust bröd, aningen smörkola, hallon- jordgubbsaft. Smaken drar först åt kolaremmar och sött bröd, de smöriga tonerna och mineraler och lite blommig humle med en gräsig beska och en stramare avslutning. Finstämt men jag hade nog gissat engeskinsprierad ale snarare än altbier om jag inte visste vad jag drack.
