leaparsons (7995) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - MAY 25, 2005
Bottle. Lost half of this beer upon an explosive opening. What I had left was golden with a bubbly white head. Aromas are butter malts with grain and some fruitiness, floral in its hopping and quite dry. Flavours are soft, sweet biscuit malts with peppery hops and hints of fruit. Surprisingly floral in its hopping with a dry aftertaste. A little thin in body but refreshing. A decent UK lager.

Papsoe (25089) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAY 16, 2005
UPDATED: JUL 3, 2005 (Bottle 50 cl) Oddly enough this comes in a bottle of German-/Czech-style. And to add to it’s multinationalism it’s brewed with organic hops from New Zealand! Amber-coloured, slightly hazy, decent head. Fresh and very fruity without much bitterness. Some underlying tartness. Reminds me of a good brewpub-style lager. 010104

Looks good, clean & golden good steady bead, head is a bit thin but it lasts well. Aroma is slightly fruity...not much else to say about that really. Soft malt dominates the palate, hops only noticable with a hint of citrussy fruit on the finish. Overall a fine lager, lacks a bit on the hop front tho. This was bought at Moffat Wine Shop not that far from the brewery( bbe march 2006 if your interested) Label is a bit of a departure for this brewery.

JensenTaster (1719) - DENMARK - JAN 13, 2005
(on bottle) My fav Pale Laer, witch is a style with alot of baaaad beer in it. This is a easydrinkable, full, well hopped lager. Has a hint of cardemmome in the nice malty nose. fat, full motuhfeel and a good carbonation. I´m gonna hit my lager swilling pals with this one for sure.

Ungstrup (29172) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JAN 3, 2005
[At Jyske Øldage 2004, Kolding] A yellow beer with a fine head. The aroma is sweet with notes of caramel. The flavor is sweet malty and quite perfumated.

Golden color with a white head. The taste is sweet with a light yeasty almost soapy note. Finishes very light and slightly bitter.

Spiesy (2338) - Sydney, Greater London, AUSTRALIA - JUL 12, 2004
Bottled. Foggy pale yellow with a bubbly head. Banana/ethylene aroma. Banana and vanilla flavour, rather unremarkable and not that pleasant. A bit crude really.

chriso (7347) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 29, 2004
Gold colour. Some malty cereal in the aroma. Short of flavour. What there is, again, is malty, but dull. Although the malt is quite dry, there is precious little in the way of hop presence. Either those organic NZ hops (Hallertau?) don’t pack much punch or they’ve stinted on quantity. Bland, but inoffensive - not much va va voom here. Hardly "exciting" as claimed in the blurb. Mind you, it was very close to the best before date. 500ml bottle (not bottle conditioned) from beersofeurope.co.uk. BBE 30 June 2004.

SilkTork (5180) - Rochester, Kent, United Kingdom, Kent, ENGLAND - NOV 26, 2003
Bottle. Malt and hops in an alcoholic drink that quenches the thirst. What? You want flavour, character and something interesting as well? No chance.

rauchbier (3596) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - SEP 9, 2002
Bottle. Gold with good head and condition. Sweet malt in the nose, fruit and malt in the mouth but very little aftertaste.
