Pours pale yellow/golden with little head, quickly dissipating. Little aroma of sweet malt. Flavor is light malt, a bit sweet. Fairly carbonated. Very easy to drink. Good for the style. Good for South Africa.

South Africa has a fair share of uninspired craft lagers, but this one is impressive. Pours a deep clear golden with small white carbonating head. Lacing too. Aroma is floral and spicy noble hops and some cardboard. Nice palate. Aftertaste is a solid floral hop bite for a lager. Overall: Very nice. Clean, good presentation and nice hop balance.

Pale blond color. It’s a dry beer, with corn character. Bad.

This a pretty fine lager and superior to anything available from its bigger South African bullies. I have had both kegged and bottled versions. The kegged version had a great formy head which held up almost all the way to the end of the glass leaving a nice lace behind. Much more malty than expected, almost akin to a Munich Hellas than a traditional SA lager. Starts off a little sweet, finishing quite dry. Light floral hops. Will definitely be quaffing this more :)

Very weak beer in taste and flavour. Pale ale and ok in very small doses. Cheap and cheerful

Papsoe (25076) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAY 24, 2008
(Bottle 34 cl) Pours a clear, deep golden with a small, white head. Lightly tart aroma and some floral accents. Medium body with a good malt feel and a distinct touch of aroma hops before a short, dry finish. The beer has an underlying tartness that is acceptable as of now, but I doubt it will be by expiry date July 08. However you do get the feeling of better raw materials in this one. 170508

One of the best beers I’ve tasted coming from South Africa. Let’s hope we see more from these guys.
