3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
50 cL bottle. Pours deep amber with an orange glare, slowly collapsing orange to tan head. Mild spiced, roasted malt and caramel aroma. Flavour is light fruity with a mild liqourice note and slowly building bitterness. Very minor smoke note it seems. Solid bitterness into the finish, mixed with notes of caramel and light roasted notes.

A red-brown beer with a nice off-white head. The aroma is slightly spicy combined with notes of caramel. The flavor is malty with sweet notes of caramel as well as being rather hoppy which lead to an OK bitter end.

(Bottle 33 cl) Amber or almond coloured with a creamy, lasting head. Very, very aromatic from the top quality hops which are characteristic of Nils Oscar. Notes of dry sherry. Very distinct bitterness - and very delicious indeed. 210202

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled. At first lots of cinnamon in aroma. After a while in the glass it ruens more hoppy and caramellish. Flavour is sweet, spiced malts and also some hops in finish. Quite pleasant mix, and also wellbalanced between sweet and sour. Spices dominate the aftertaste, which otherwise is sweet malty and spicy. Well done, as most other Nils Oscars.

3.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clean amber color; generous thick head. Almost disappointing aroma: malty, metallic and somehow smelly. Much more interesting flavor: dry, malty, good roasted malt really pronounciated, quite complex, just a bit metallic. Palate boldly bitter.
Not extraordinary, but an interesting one (Scottish Ale).

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. A bit hazy body, golden-orange color, and with a beige head. There’s a strange aroma with caramel and fruits, put I couldn’t pin it. The flavor is more pleasant, with caramel, hops, roasted malt and a little grainy note. Medium, quite sticky mouthfeel, and a grainy and fruity finish. I had some expectations for this one, but they weren’t fullfilled. I found it a bit strange, certainly drinkable, but not too successful. (070705)
