Papsoe (25083) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAY 5, 2006
UPDATED: DEC 28, 2007 (Bottle 35,5 cl) Clear, pale pilsener golden with a small, white head. Thin aroma of unmalted cereals. Light-bodied, sweetish and sticky with notes of cardboard. No bitterness. So not even Abita could manage to brew a drinkable Light-beer. 060406
