Doesn't fit to Flanders Oud Bruin beer style category. Fits to Oud Bruin from Netherlands. It means uncomplicated in aroma and taste, low alcohol (usually 2,5% to 3,5% by ABV), semi-dark (amber) to dark lager with dominant sweetness.

Micheal Jackson translates Oud Bruin from Netherlands like Old Brown Lager.

This was an odd beer for me. It reminds me of one of those nonalcoholic malt drinks. The appearance is nice. Dark brown body with great tan and lace. The smell is overly sweet and only has strong tone of malt. It has chocolate over sweet taste with a very chalky aftertaste. It has a full body.

Great beer when youre like me, drinking dark beer. The switch feom dark stout to pilsener is bot pleasant, therefor this beer low in alcohol is great in between. On itself, nothing exciting... for me very exciting

The look is ok, nothing exciting.
But then the smell and taste just give me a bad feeling. To sweet and soda like. With a bad aftertaste.
I honestly would not recommend this.

Unless having it on tap in Europe is dramatically different than having it in the bottle (which I have never had), I am really surprised to see such low scores here. I found this to be a really nice, dry lager.

Bottle at Oud Holland, Amsterdam, Netherlands

A: The beer is clear but very dark reddish brown in color and has no visible carbonation. It poured with a half finger high beige head that died down but never completely faded away.
S: Light aromas of sweet flat cola are present in the nose along with some hints of caramel.
T: Like the smell, the taste is a little sweet and has light flavors of a defizzed cola.
M: It feels light-bodied and slightly watery on the palate with a moderate amount if carbonation.
O: This beer isn't too sweet so it is easy to drink but doesn't taste much like a bier.
