An easy session beer and nice but nothing to shout home about. Nutty brown colour and taste.

Deep golden ale with a thin but crisply drinkable texture. Some fruit aromas but little of this is to be found in its taste.

imdownthepub (9623) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 2, 2012
Cask conditioned at Harbury Beer Fest ’12. Brown with white head. Dry, malty bitter with an earthy back-note and twiggy type hop. Lasting bitterness on the palate but not overly exciting. It’s ok.

Papsoe (25094) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - OCT 6, 2011
Bottle 50 cl. Courtesy of Alice BS. Pours a hazy nutty brown with a small, rough off-white head. Subtle roasty aroma with a little licorice. Medium body, low carbonation, sweet roast and some ddried dark fruits. Somewhat minerally. Distinct bitterness in the finish. Closer to a Mild than to a Bitter I’d say. 051011
