I read about this place here on RB so I walked all the way from the city centre to check it out and to be honest I was disappointed. Most of their draft beers were the commercially mass produced beers that we have all grown out of. There were a couple of decent specials at the end of the bar but the draft selection is poor. They have a great selection of bottled beers but there was no beer menu and the girl behind the bar wasn’t really interested in selling it either. I had intended to eat here and have a few beers, but I just had one and left. If you are going to open a beer bar then you need to staff it with people that like and know something about beer. There was no wi fi either. There was a network named after the bar but the staff wouldn’t give me the password.
Newly renovated part of nya Tröls has made the place more crowded and it’s hard to stand in line for your order. The larger room which retains the old style - dark wood, cart wheels etc. is nice! Beer lists are seldom updated so one has to peer at the fridges instead. Some of the staff know their beer and can recommend, others don’t seem that interested. Selection is good but a bit pricey.

large-roomed interior with a long bar offering similar taps to other places in town (some Swedish, Danish, German, American). extensive bottle selection, be sure to ask for the book. enjoyed a Tsarina Cognac on my visit.
Two rooms - one bar plus a larger restaurant with stage. Experienced and knowing staff. Usually excellent food but it can vary. Good selection of Scandinavian bottles in the restaurant bar, more taps in the pub room along with a good choice of world beers incl many De Molens. Occasional beer events (brewer visits).
On a damp Sunday afternoon, the Nya Trols seemed like a cross between a clubhouse bar and a family restaurant. It’s a little way out from the centre of Malmo but near an interesting park with amusements, which perhaps explains why there were a few families with young children dining there. It has a very local feel and isn’t somewhere you’d be likely to stumble across by accident so thanks to Lars and Anders for taking us there.
On the outside the Nya Trols is fairly ordinary but it has a large deck area along one side near the main entrance which, for some inexplicable reason, made me feel as if I was about to enter a Tyrolean chalet. Inside it’s quite spacious; we only went in one bar but apparently there are two. It’s basic in décor, with plain brown painted tongue and groove panelling below the dado rail and white painted wallpaper above. There’s a variety of beer related plaques and pictures on the walls, a dart board and, at one end of the room near the door, what I took to be a small stage. Bottles are displayed on shelves over the windows and, at the end of May, there were flags around the room advertising St Patrick’s week. According to Anders, these had been there since March.
The list of draught beers was quite unusual. There were some treats like Beer Here’s Bukkake, Eskilstuna’s Stenby Single Hop and Narke’s Max Golding Starkporter alongside less tempting brews - two Staropramens, Falcon Export, Carlsberg Hof, Samuel Adams and Brooklyn lagers, Guinness, Leffe Blond and Hoegaarden. The bottle list was something else completely and here the Nya Trols really came into its own with a wide selection, including many I’d never heard of. Have a look at the website to get an idea of the range. Anders Dubbel IPA and Artos Modern Lager (both from Eskilstuna) were a couple that we tried alongside the draft Max Golding Starkporter and Stenby Single Hop.

I like it a lot, but the problem is that the owners doesn’t employ enough waiters. But the waitress working there are great and knows the beers. The place is big but can be overcrowded sometimes. The low foodrating is perhaps me being a vegetarian.
Odd place close to "folkets park" and Nobelvägen. Selection is pretty solid, the owner is fast when it comes to getting the new American and Danish beers available in Sweden, often for a very low price aswell. Staff consists mainly of young girls with very limited beer knowledge but they do try.. The ambience is a bit off here though, kind of crappy in a not so charming way with plenty of both older and younger drunks especially on weekends. Also beware that IPA’s and IIPA’s often are way too old here.
