Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - APR 1, 2007
(On tap) Clear, amber golden with an off-white head and some lacework. Discreet aroma of caramel. Light and slightly watery body with dry notes of caramel and nuts. The finish is dry and lightly bitter. I’m not sure I understand why Magnolia has two Bitters on tap at the same time. 210307

mcberko (14411) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 24, 2013
On tap at Magnolia, pours a clear copper orange with a small beige head. Aroma is very subtle, with toasted herbal notes. Flavour tastes like nothing, just some subtle toasted malt with an English twist. Boring as hell - nothing to this.
