Brewed in the style of English old ale/Winter Warmer, OSM is a long time favorite of BBC beer fans. It is a full bodied malt forward amber ale with just enough Northern Brewer and Golding hops to balance the malt.

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - DEC 22, 2010
On tap. Slightly hazy orangey brown with a small off-white head. Plenty of burned caramel and sweetish roasted malt in the nose. Medium body, plenty of roasted malt, a little nuts and burned caramel with a fairly dry and hoppy finish that aint overly aromatic. But a solid effort indeed. 181210

Ungstrup (36934) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - DEC 31, 2010
Draft. A deep red beer with a bubbly off-white head. The aroma has notes of fruit, red berries, and malt. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt and caramel as well as lighter notes of alcohol and a tart berry note, leading to a dry, berry, and alcoholic finish.

jesperhammer (4707) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - DEC 20, 2010
18-DEC-2010, draft at Mikkeller Bar. Black with redish hue. What is this? A schwartzbier...? Not very roasted, on the light side with charamel. Very easy drinking, but really too expensive for what it is. Many better brews on tap here...

De barril. Clear deep dark brown colour, off-white small head, ok lacing. Sweet caramel dark malty and dark fruity aroma, aged. Ok mouthfeel. Sweet dark malty and dark fruity caramel aged flavour with a bit alcohol and chocolate. Too sweet and aged flavour for my likings.

502Che (999) - @, CAMBODIA - JAN 3, 2009
On tap at st. Matthews brewpub served in half pint flute. Not really offensive, but simply not balanced or very drinkable. There seems to be a total lack of direction/style.

ContemplateBeer (2083) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - DEC 5, 2015
Half at BBC St. Matts. Aroma: Mostly toffee/caramel type malts with some very light fruity esters; not much in the way of hops here. Appearance: Amber pour with soft carbonation holding up a sticky bone coloured skin of head. Flavor: Matches the nose with malts and light fruitiness throughout; the finish is abrupt and mostly dry. Palate: Medium body, sticky texture, soft carbonation, abrupt finish. Overall: Pretty ordinary, but drinkable malt forward beer. With this beer, Im now tied with TheBeerOrg for the second most BBC rates.
