Papsoe (25085) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JAN 3, 2008
(Bottle 33 cl) Courtesy of yespr. Clear, golden with a white head. Weird aroma of cat’s pee. Medium body, sweetish malt and then again this acidic accent of urine. Subdued bitterness. 171207

omhper (19372) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - JAN 3, 2005
Bottled. Clear golden, small head. Fruity, somewhat sweet and light bodied. The mouthfeel is slightly raw and harsh. Grassy finish with some bitterness. Very average beer with not much character, but at least no very evident real flaws.

crossovert (7388) - Illinois, USA - MAR 26, 2014
Literal smell of farts. Fizzy gold pour. Mostly water and vile regurgitation.

Skinnyviking (7062) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUN 8, 2007
Bottle. Medium high white but quickly disappearing white head. Clear golden body. Sweet and fruity aroma in a pleasant mixture of pears and peaches. Not as sweet as feared. First impression is low hopped with the addition of some acidity. Low carbonation and a short aftertaste.
