2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. Nils Oscar is not my favorite brewery, to be honest. I don’t like their characteristic vegtable/yeast/way too sweet maltiness profile that i find in their beers. This one also had a touch of alcohol that reminds me of a maltl liqour beer. Big bodied though.

Pours amber with a slight haze and a small, creamy head. Sweet, somewhat yeasty aroma with notes of citrus. Flavour is sweet and fruity with loads of zesty grapefruit; a little bit too much zesty grapefruit.

Hazy Coppery body, white head. Aroma has mild fruits and citrus with some light toast. Flavour adds a little piney character. Some body and nice texture, but there’s no yeasty Belgian blonde feeling in this.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
750ml bottle @ home. Medium gold, maybe a bit dull. White head, dies rather quickly. Quite spicy nose, yeasty, hops, wheat. Medium bodied, dry, quite malty/wheaty, with aromatic yeasty and hoppy notes. Medium long finish. I expected more complexity, and more expressive Sorachi hop notes. Not bad, though.

Bottle. Dark golden colour with a white head. Sweet, fruity, lightly phenolic and lightly spicy. Smooth & easy drinking stuff. Almost a bit too clean for a belgian ale, but rather tasty anyhow.
