Papsoe (25085) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAY 17, 2005
UPDATED: JUL 3, 2005 (Bottle 50 cl) The world’s first organic beer? Hmm, I believe I’ve heard that claim be made before by another brewery, but I suppose it could be true. Beautiful orangey golden, slightly hazy with a small yet present head. Quite malty with an underlying sweetness - well balanced with the hops. Very fruity and excellent if not excactly spectacular. 181004
