An orange beer with no head. The flavor is sweet and malty. The flavor is thin, slightly sweet and malty with no bitterness. Its a little sour with notes of brewmash in the end. A below average pilsener - but a good thirstquencher.

Papsoe (25073) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUN 14, 2005
(Bottle 32,5 cl) Beautiful amber colour, rather limited head. Fairly full-bodied with a lovely, full malt sweetness. Discreet bitterness. Not exactly a great lager but has a lot more character than the typical Mexican macro-brew. 020505

yngwie (15381) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - NOV 12, 2011
Bottle. A small, white head sits on top of a clear, golden body. Lighlty citrusy nose with pale malts and grass. Dry, medium body with too hard carbonation. Lime, pale malts and a touch of bitterness in the flavor. Dry, lime-like finish with pale malts, and a touch of bitterness. Rather boring, but drinkable and quenching. 111112
