2.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle shared by akevitt. Pours a hazy, orange-amber body with a light brown foam head. Aroma of caramel malts, bread, and spices along with a hint of floral hops and maybe prunes. Aroma is much better than the flavor, which is pretty one-dimensional and mainly bread/caramel malts. Very watery on the palate. Finishes clean with a slight burnt malt and coffee finish.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Slight hazy, golden brown with a fine white head. Citrus, malt, spice caramel and slight toasted. A sweet maltyness is very nicely balnced with a hint of bitterness. Very pleasent.

As always with Nils Oscar, this is a good beer. Deep colour. Distinct bitterness but definitely malt dominated. Perhaps a little too sweet for my liking, but I believe that’s a feature of the style, not an imbalance in this beer.

Nice dark golden/amber color, with an ok head. Has a weak aroma from vegetables. Flavour is floral and from perfume, has a peppery and maybe to strong finsh.

Bready malty taste. Quite long taste, full body. Quite hoppy and bitter in the taste. Like it.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A bit skunked and slightly oxidized. The head struggled to have any life to it. Light toffee notes with a mild, and a bit off, hop profile. Would’ve liked to have seen a deeper malt backbone to this one. Not impressed, but would be curious as to what a fresh bottle was intended to taste like.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(Bottle BB 10/2006) Fruity, hoppy, slightly roasted and slightly caramel aroma. Red brown colour, bright but some very small particles, slightly sparkling and average size, white, more or less fully diminishing head with fair lacing. Caramel, roasted malty, slightly bitter and fruity (citrus) flavour. Softly carbonated and medium-bodied palate. Good, well balanced beer! 21/08/06
