50 cL bottle. Pours hazy brown with a lacing off-white head. Aroma is bread and light note of roasted malt. Flavour follows this closely with a light roasted note and breadish malt flavour. Light acidic touch. Very mild and easy. Light spiced bitterness and more bread in the finish.

A deep red beer with a small light brown head. The aroma is sweet and slightly burnt. The flavor is of roasted malt, slightly burnt, but unfortunately the body is a little thin.

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUL 12, 2005
(Bottle 50 cl) Very dark ruby red colour, clear and pretty indeed. Very small head and almost no carbonation - almost English cask appearance. Huge sediment though. A slight indefinable and not completely pleasant nose - roasted somehow. Very malty flavours, roasted malt - light sweetish, soft and pleasant mouthfeel. An incredibly flavourful beer for it’s rather small body. 110705

omhper (23711) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - MAY 17, 2004
Bottled. Mahogany colour, rich head. Roasty, fruity nose. Soft and rounded with lots of caramel. Salty, nutty and woody, well balanced. Medium bitterness. Restrained but still very flavourful. Imagine a Newcastle Brown, but fresher, maltier, richer and hoppier, and this is your beer...
