330ml bottle on a balkony i Lund. Hoppy, sweet, toasty, grassy, lovely aroma. Ok head, amber colour. Metallic bitterness, a bit too sweet and too bitter lowers my overall rating. C

Wonderful dark copper to amber color. Fine white head that slowly vanishes. Strong bitterness crossed with malt and hops. The beer has an earth-like feel which I often find and like in Oktoberfests. Thanks Eructoblaster for another good Nils Oscar!

Pleasant aroma, taste and palate, but I’m not thrilled. [short review due to it coming from my backlog]

Bottle. Dark amber color with a fading head. Mild bitter and hoppy aroma. A light flavor of a good mixture between hops and malt, bitter character. Something malty in the finish but it doesn’t leave a long taste on the palate. I say it’s very close to the same brewers India Ale, despite being a different type of beer.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
A very dark example of a Marzen/vienna, from a good brewery. Tastes strongly of brown bread crusts, or a Scandinavian-type rye bread. Doesn’t really have the smoothness to counteract the powerful malt, BUT my bottle was 6 months out of date.
