A good thorough bitterness, very evident presence of hops and caramel, but why keep this burnt sidetone? Good for s sturdy meal, not for sipping. Jyrsa (890) - - DEC 20, 2014

Sträv beska som nästan sätter sig på bakhasorna, samtidigt som den bryter upp ytor för övriga smaker att röra sig på. Hög halt av aromer, ett destillat av livets goda, just så som man kommit att vänta sig av Nils Oscar. SamTheBarrel (816) - Vallentuna, SWEDEN - MAR 28, 2015

Clear copper with a small white head. Aroma is pretty malty, lots of grainy, toasty notes. Flavour is a little sweet, lots more bready, toasty things as well as some greenish citric hops. Doesn’t really scream "Swedish christmas" to me, but it ticks the boxes for a decent beer... something that Nils Oscar seem to have down pat. mirjukka (752) - LOHJA, FINLAND - SEP 14, 2010
