Papsoe (25083) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAY 16, 2005
UPDATED: JUL 3, 2005 (Bottle 50 cl) A beer that doesn’t promise too much - this is red indeed. Beautiful reddish brown, filtered with a small and vaguely light brown head. Very soft, almost sweetish with pronounced malty notes and a very limited bitterness. Some smoke in there too. Nice. 040904

fiulijn (15310) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 7, 2008
Bottle at Svea, Malmö, 4% ABV
Dark red-amber color; rocky head. Aroma of caramel and ripe apples. Dark caramel flavor, leading to some roasted malt and nutty bitterness later (too much for me); it’s quite dry. Simple.
