yespr (30908) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - NOV 11, 2007
From tap at the brewpub (ABV: 5.9%). Pours beautiful red/hazzlenut brown with a dense off-white head. Sweet malty and butterish aroma with a slight spiced note. Flavour holds a soft citric/bitter note above the mild malt base. Not really sweet nor dry, medium. Slight bitterness in the finish, but once again - buttery. Has a note of cardemomme in the far finish.

Ungstrup (29223) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JAN 18, 2003
UPDATED: MAY 14, 2006 A deep red unclear beer (not filteret) with a beutiful head. It has a slight aroma of fruit. The flavor is very mild with notes of fruit - but no bitterness. It’s very light for a christmas beer of 5.6% abv.

Papsoe (25088) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - AUG 13, 2005
(On tap) Nice amber colour with a fine head. Discreet, slightly flowery nose and a light bitterness. Unfortunately this lacks both body and flavour - I expect a lot more from a Christmas brew. 111201

Draft at the brewpub. Hazy orange coloured with a small beige head. Sweet aroma of fruits, malts and hops with spicy notes. Fruity flavour with notes of hops, yeast and overriped fruits. Hoppy finish.

UPDATED: DEC 9, 2005 2005-12-03, 6.5% ABV, 6-3-7-3-13=32
Dark amber color, creamy head. Nice aroma of malt, some hop. Reasonable body structure, malty, some sweetness, caramel, some aromatic hop. Ends with a strong caramel-like bitterness, still some malt. Good blend, just too much caramel and lightly metallic.

Copper-amber color; generous head. Malty aroma, caramel; light. Average body strength, but quite a lot of malt character in the front (drier than suspected), then the caramel and finally a fairly good hopping, as usual from Apollo (maybe a little thin and lacking of character).

Dec ’02, 8-5-8-5-16
Hazy amber color; generous and thick head; wonderful lace. Very nice aroma: hop and fruits (mango, cherries, plums). Good body structure, with a residual sweetness and a good hopping; enough caramel; maybe just too much aggressive (too much carbonation). More caramel and less hop aroma than the Apollo Pilsner in the final, but it’s quite long and strong anyway, also with a long, nice sweet note.

Tap @ Flakhaven, Odense. Pours clear reddish amber with a small white head. Nose is sweet vienna , with a hint of butter, grain and alcohol. Taste is dry and bitter with notes of grass, grain and perfumy hops. Medium palate. Ends dry. Fresh and fine offering from Apollo!

Tap @ Sct. Clemens. 6.4 %
Pours hazy copper-golden with a small, frothy, white head. Aroma is sweet and malty, some caramel, oranges and piney hops. A touch of cardboard and a little raisin. Highish carbonation, a bit thin. Flavour is sweet, quite sugary, caramel, Belgian sugar, a bit toasted. Too sweet for me.
Earlier Rating: 12/16/2006 Total Score: 2.9
Draught. Orange red colour with okay white head. Fruity and caramelly aroma. Okay taste with quite a lot of orange flavour. A bit sweet.
