3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
(Draught) Clear amber color with a medium, foamy and slightly tanned head. Caramely, slightly roasty, neutral aroma with sourish-vineous hints. Caramely-malty flavor with aromatic, piney hopping. Medium-bodied, slightly slicky-vinous palate with smooth carbonation. A nicely hoppy, neutral and balanced brew. Could be fuller, but suits the style.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. The colour is red-brown; the head is large, airy, firm and beige.
The complex smell got a fine flavour of aroma hops (Fuggles? Challenger?), a touch of malt, some bitterness and a sweet note.
The carbonation is both refreshing and gentle.
The taste is first hoppy with a touch of Madeira, and then it develops into a full-bodied taste with a mild bitterness and a sour-earthy touch. The aftertaste is long and balanced with some earthy notes.
The best beer from Nils Oscars I have reviewed so far: A well-crafted, complex and musty vienna lager

A red beer with appearant hops and roasted malts in aroma. Slightly sweet, but still with a good, nice balance. Pleasant hoppy aftertaste.
