yespr (31470) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - OCT 6, 2007
33 cL bottle. Pours clear yellow with no head. Aroma is cornish, clean. Flavour is sweet malty to cornish with bit of bitterness in the finish. In broad terms it is really indifferent from the Macedonia or the Tanzania beer: world wide pale lager brew.

Ungstrup (29474) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - FEB 13, 2005
A light yellow beer with a nice head. The aroma is hoppy and sour, probably from the use of brewing cereal. The flavor is sweet malty with notes of metal, while the end is dry.

Papsoe (25085) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - OCT 7, 2007
(Bottle 33 cl) Courtesy of yespr. Pours a clear, pale golden with a white head. Vague aroma of brewing cereal. Medium body, sweet notes of corn starch. No bitternes though. Your typical Pale Lager. 051007

Bottled. Golden colour, small white head. Maize mainly in flavour and aroma. Hops also present in flavour. Pretty standard watery lager...

anders37 (16895) - Malmö, SWEDEN - AUG 29, 2005
Pale yellow colour. Thin white head. Has a malty smell. Sweet and a little malty taste, pretty high carbonation and very easy to drink.

Warning! Early amateur rating! Perfectly serviceable lager. Supposedly brewed with water from the Andes. If it is its not lifting this beyond being a standard brew.

fiulijn (14978) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 13, 2004
Blond color. Some malt in the aroma, and a little in the flavor as well, but ends to simply.
