Papsoe (25085) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUL 5, 2006
(Bottle 50 cl) Pours a slightly hazy amber, no head and basically no carbonation either. Malty, slightly sour aroma. Light body with vague notes of nuts, but otherwise just sour, vinegary and plain nasty. Yet another bottle conditioned English beer gone terribly bad. Needs a rerate. 040706

Hazy orange amber, off-white fluffy head. Fruity and flowery aroma, english hops, quite pleasant. The flavor is a bit of a letdown - Light fruity and metallic yeasty notes on top of a very light strawmalt body. The dead yeast is grating the senses - and the bottle has bbeen standing upright for several days so I dont think it would settle down more than it has.

A very drinkable golden beer with a hoppy taste. The dry finish prompts me to drink it quicker that I should... Sold in many of my locals in South Shrophire and is very popular.
