Papsoe (25089) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - DEC 24, 2005
UPDATED: SEP 10, 2009 (Bottle 75 cl) Slightly hazy pilsener golden with a fine, creamy, thick head leaving some laces. Incredibly smooth mouthfeel. Rather neutral, vaguely malty aroma. The body is dry with notes of malt and grass. Almost no bitterness. Extremely soft and accessible. More like a Belgian Blond ale. Will probably appeal to the adventurous pilsener drinker. 231205 and 220809

fiulijn (14340) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 11, 2010
Corked bottle from Auchan, Quatre Temps, La Défense, Paris
Blond color. Unoffensive Ale (?), poor aroma (corn), poor flavor in the front, but strangely there is a late fruity touch (Ale yeast), and even very light hop burp. Drinkable; well, in France.

MiP (13516) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - SEP 5, 2009

harrisoni (13276) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - DEC 5, 2005
75cl bottle from Auchan. Slightly hazy golden beer with thin white head. Thinnish yeast, but fresh aroma and a tad tinny in the mouth. Some citrus dryness on the end. Fine biere de garde and quite drinkable due to the creamyness in mouth

yngwie (13198) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - NOV 3, 2009
Bottle, 75cl corked. Pours a clear, golden body under a minimal white head. Malty and fruity nose with a little grainy touch. Similar flavor, malty and fruity with a grainy backbone, leading to a dry finish with fruits and some bitterness. Medium to full body. A decent and easy drinkable beer, but there’s nothing special with it. Just a plain Biere de Garde. 090821

thewolf (11131) - Kolding, DENMARK - SEP 3, 2006
Pours yellow-orange with thin white head and lots of bubbles. Aroma is sweet with malty tones dominating, but lemon and some oranges spill through. Taste is complex, with fruit and malty tones combining. It even has a slight bitterness in its quite long aftertaste.
