Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAY 2, 2006
(Bottle 50 cl) Beautiful, clear amber with a small, off-white head. Malty nose with a vaguely fruity touch. Light-bodied, fresh and fruity - almost floral - with notes of nuts. Hoppy finish. Lovely - and another fine example from Copper Dragon of why British breweries should drop bottle conditioning. This is clean and crisp. 300406

Draft. Clear dark gold beer. Low carbonation. A little fruity in the nose which carries over to the taste. Palate is semi dry. Ultimately hamstrung by some sulphur.

harrisoni (17282) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JUL 24, 2006
Cask handpull at Market Porter, Borough. Copper/gold with lasting off white head. Spicy beer. Quite aromatic aroma with some toffee and earthy hop on end. Tastes like its brewed with lavender or heather. Bizarre. God knows what it’s brewed with. Base beer is fine. Tastes like licking a heather bush. Dry finish.
