Papsoe (25085) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - NOV 22, 2005
(Bottle 50 cl) Hazy amber with a nice, off-white head. Very spicy aroma from the Liberty hops. Some notes of nuts and quite dry with a bitterness that doesn’t linger for long. Very delicious. 061200

Bottled. Clear amber coloured with a medium sized off white head. Fruity aroma with notes of hops. Fruity flavour of malts and hops.

Ungstrup (29284) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAY 21, 2003
A light brown beer with no head. The aroma is sweet and malty, and so is the flavor. A good ale.

Drew (2411) - Kent, Ohio, USA - FEB 13, 2003
I was expecting a malty thing, but wow- this has a warming hop presence, some sourness at the start, a sweet streak down the middle, fruit essences here and there, and some spicyness at the finish

When Hall & Woodhouse (Badger) bought up this 200 year old brewery the future of some of it’s bottle conditioned ales was uncertain. The famous White Shield was rescued by the Bass Museum, but somewhat less prestigious ales such as this run of the mill beer were in doubt for a while, but then Badger decided to keep this and two others from the K&B range. I tasted it while it was still made by K&B and it didn’t impress. Maybe the new brewers can make something out of it?

austinpowers (2826) - New York, New York, USA - JUL 25, 2002
Named after the ’last sighting’ of a live dragon, at Faygage, England in the 1500s, this ale’s as murky as Loch Ness. Rather strong, with spicy notes. Uses only Liberty hops to create an interesting flavor. There’s a strange tartness that’s unexpected.

omhper (19370) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - JUN 10, 2002
Amber coloured. Sweet and rather light bodied. A hint of grapefruit bitterness.

pilsnerrogge (2497) - Finspång, SWEDEN - JUN 5, 2002
Very fruity aroma. Somewhat sourish flavour, but in a positive way! Mmmmmmmmmmmmmh candy! A bit thin though.
