Bottled.A hazy amber beer with a lazing tan head. The aroma is sweet with notes of malt and caramel. The falvor is sweet with notes of malt, alcohol, and grapefruit, the alcohol gives it a good body and leaves a slight burn on the palate. Thanks Papsoe for sharing.

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUN 22, 2008
(Bottle 75 cl) Courtesy of FlacoAlto. Slightly hazy golden with an off-white head. Aroma of yeast and fruit. Medium body with sweet fruit and yeast and a fairly bitter finish. Nothing wrong with it - it’s just plain boring. And how it made it to an average of 3.86 really is one of this world’s great mysteries. 190608

17th June 2008. This reminded me a lot of ’Deus’ but fortunately the water chesnut flavour is much pared down here and is balanced by orange and grapefruit. Soft dry finish. A bit different.
