yespr (32033) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - MAY 12, 2008
33 cL bottle. Pours clear and golden yellow with a slowly collapsing creamy and white head. Aroma is grassy to cornish, seems dry. Flavour is medium sweet cornish with a mild caramel malt note and a light bitterness into the finish. Good thirst quencer.

Ungstrup (29850) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - FEB 9, 2003
A golden beer with an OK head - but it disappears all too quickly. The aroma is nicely hoppy - but a little too faint. The flavor is fresh at first, then a bit maltsweet - but then it turns watery. It gets a little back from the nice bitterness.

Papsoe (25083) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUL 17, 2005
UPDATED: AUG 2, 2005 (Bottle 33 cl) French version at 5,9% ABV. A truly French classic, remember having this back in the 80’s while visiting my French girlfriend. Oh, sweet memories...
Premium strong lager. Beautiful fully golden colour with a decent head. Well balanced between malts and hops. Good quality lager. 170403

(Bottle 25 cl) Belgian version brewed by Alken-Maas. Pale golden, limited head and unfortunately also limited flavours. Sweet malt and a faint idea of hops. Not bad just very feeble. Typical bland "Premium" lager. 4/2//3/2/8=1,9 020799

joergen (21533) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUN 1, 2009
Bottle at home. Clear yellow coloured with a medium sized white head. Aroma of malts, grain, sulphur and hops. Flavour of malts, grain, fruits and hops. Light watery. Boring.

oh6gdx (20930) - Vasa, FINLAND - OCT 4, 2005
Bottled. Golden colour, with mediumsized white head. Aroma is malty with hints of hay and honey. Flavour is smooth malts and hops with hayish hints. Wellbalanced flavour, and very smooth lager. Pleasant to drink and refreshing.

omhper (19972) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - FEB 19, 2002
Golden coloured. Rather sweet, medium bodied, very little hop presence. At best an average lager.

anders37 (17536) - Malmö, SWEDEN - FEB 9, 2007
Can. Pours a clear golden color with a longlasting white head. Sweet malty grassy aroma. The flavor is sweet malty with some bready and grassy hints. Long malty finish with some sweetness. Has some bitterness in the aftertaste.

fiulijn (15310) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 19, 2003
Blond to golden color. Very light malt aroma; too simple, without interest, just some bitterness at the end.

saxo (14158) - Højbjerg, Aarhus, DENMARK - APR 9, 2006
Bottle. This is yet another average lager. Why it should be called a premium is still a mystery to me. Small head with short duration. Aroma and taste is primarily malt
