COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
1820 började England exportera ett speciellt öl till Indien. Dett kallades för India Ale. För att klara den långa transporten var ölet kraftig humlat. Nils Oscar India Ale. är en modern tolkning av klassisk India Ale. Ölet baseras på humlesorten Amarillo, som tydligt markerar sin närvaro i ölet. Aromen har drag af tropiska frukter och citrus. Nils Oscar India Ale är överjäst på pilsner-, münchener- och karamellmalt. Passa till nästan all mat, mer är givetvis utsökt även på egen hand.

Theydon_Bois (7005) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - APR 15, 2014
Keg at the Rover, Goteborg, 23/03/14. Clear golden amber with a moderate off white swirl and edgeing. Nose is toasted malt, caramel, light citrus, pretty thin aroma. Taste comprises caramel malt, light hops, faint citrics, biscuit, grassy. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close. Caramac forward IPA - pretty mediocre stuff ... yawn.

Det är lite skum med så lite skum... Roasted caramel malts, pine forest, citrus (maybe mandarin) scents to the nose. Amber clear body, off-white thin layer. Mild roasted caramel malts, a forest of hops, citrus, cactus, grass, smooth grains. Normal carbonation, good body, easy to palate. Gentle bitter finish with some roasted malts. Overall tasteful and easy likeable. Among the better indeed. 33cl 5.3% B@Systembolaget, tasted@home.

Pours caramel with a low white head. Aroma is rye bread, malt, caramel, orange rinds. Taste is quite grassy, with tones of peach and rye bread, along with some citrusy notes. A very british ale, though more of an amber ale than an india (pale) ale), although it’s not pale of course.

My bottle is chocolate brown and says India Pale Ale. Hazy medium orange amber with a number of floaters, thin rim head, no lace. Taste is refreshing grassy malt with a little biscuit and autumn leaves, with a light, discernible hop bittering adding just enough to move things back toward the center. Actually, quite drinkable, although not really an IPA. Recommended.

Vighals (777) - Sørumsand, NORWAY - JAN 15, 2014
Gylden brun klar med offwhite skum som ligger. Lett grape, og moden stenfruktlukt. Søt og bitter i smak. Kort ettersmak litt sørlig karamell.

espenra (840) - Kurland, NORWAY - JAN 3, 2014
33cl bottle from Systembolaget. It poured a light orange colour with a minimal head. Decent amount of carbonation. Aroma is sweet with notes of corn, butterscotch, yeast and some hops. Flavour is moderately bitter. Carbonated. Notes of hops, tropical fruits, caramel, bread. Slightly bitter aftertaste, but could be a bit hoppier. Overall a decent beer, but nothing more.

Erzengel (1940) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - DEC 13, 2013
Helle Bernsteinfarbe im Glas. Der Antrunk ist frisch-leicht fruchtig. Im Hauptteil kommt eine relativ herbe Note zur Geltung, zusammen mit einer angenehmen süßichen Würzigkeit. auch ist die typische Ale-Säuerlichkeit vorhanden. Der Nachgeschmack ist nicht mehr so herb wie der Hauptteil und angenehm lang anhaltend. Dazu kommen auch einige, schon leicht muffige Malztöne, die sich aber schön in das Gesamtbild einfügen. Insgesamt ein ganz leckeres Bier, was aber von der herben Note doch sehr dominiert wird.
Test vom 30.9.2008, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 12,9,10,7,12,9 - 9,30

Lys brun i fargen. Lukter frukt og litt gjær, men lukten er svak. Tynt skumlag som forsvinner raskt. Skuffende tam i smaken til å være en IPA.

Hallstein (96) - Skogn, NORWAY - DEC 2, 2013
Nice aroma of citrus and floral hops, like a mix of american and british hops sort of. Flavors of citrusy and really nice floral hops. The maltyness is like a good bread with notes of nuts and bready cereal. Awesome beer!
