Ungstrup (29849) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - SEP 25, 2002
A red beer with a good head. It has a slightly fruity aroma. And a good sweet powerful flavor.

Papsoe (25083) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - OCT 23, 2005
(Bottle 50 cl) Dark brown with a rich, beige head. Notes of nuts and roasted malt with a light edge of smoke reminding me of Scotch. A bit low in carbonation and quite dry. A decent but far from sophisticated brew. 140700

Nitro can. Dark amber coloured with huge creamy white head. Mild malt and caramel in aroma, with some weak fruitish hints. Mild flavour of malt and a bit caramel. Hoppy finish, which is a bit papery. Pleasant beer to drink while spending a social evening at pub .)

madmitch76 (16111) - , Essex, ENGLAND - NOV 15, 2009
22nd June 2008. My bottle clearly labelled as Belhaven 80/. All sorts of falvours claimed on the bottle but really just a watery malt beer with a modest hop background. A few subtle fruity notes but nothing like what is claimed!
