This bottom fermented, light beer tickles the palates of beer-lovers around the world. Its aroma is mildly malty and its refreshingly sharp tang derives from balanced hopping.

yespr (39991) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - NOV 16, 2007
50 cL can. Pours clear yellow with a dense white head. Slight lemon fruity aroma. Flavour holds a mild malty breadish note to an otherwise lemonish flavoured beer. Ends slight citric and with a subdued sweetness, no real bitterness. Fresh but also bland, but no offensive.

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - APR 26, 2005
UPDATED: SEP 27, 2005 (Bottle 50 cl) Apparently Austria’s most famous beer beer on the export-market. In my version just called "Gösser Beer" at 5,1% ABV. Golden, hazy with a fine, dense head that sticks to the glass. Unusually soft mouthfeel - actually reminds me of a Weissbier, but completely without the acidity. Some - but not much - bitterness. Very distinctive and different. 160101

Canned (As Gösser Bier, 5.2%). Golden colour, small bubbly white head. Aroma of harsh hops, metal and sweetness. Flavour is paper, rubber, harsh hops and overall very mouthdrying.

Leighton (18075) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 12, 2010
Tap at Brouwerij Lane. Very decent Lager. Pours clear and lightly yellow with a fizzy white head. Pleasant, sweet malt aroma. Flavor too is sweet with some mild bitterness. Light bodied with fizzy carbonation. Finishes clean and sweet.

Koelschtrinker (16443) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUN 17, 2011
Mich hat dieses Bier nicht überzeugt. Leider hatte ich in der Trinksituation keine Notizmöglichkeiten, deshalb in aller Kürze aus dem Gedächnis: Irgendwie nicht "bierig" im Mittelteil, einwenig zu bitter. Absolut nicht süffig. Hier nun die genauere Beschreibung vom Flaschentest am 18.11.07: -etwas herb, schnell milder -künstlich -muffiger werdend -wässrig -langweilig Test vom 27.3.2005, Gebinde: Fass Noten: 8,6,4,7,11,6 - 6,30
