Papsoe (25090) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAR 15, 2005
(Bottle 35,5 cl) With a name like that you keep your expectations high. Of a wickedly strong and ful-flavoured beer. And the name has been notorious amongst beer-enthusiasts for ages. Well, I guess it’s mainly due to the fact, that this was one of the first successful US microbrews. Regarded by it’s effort as a beer this is rather peaceful. Dark brown, perhaps slightly copperish, neat and decent head. Soft and lightly sweet nut-character without much bitterness. A very pleasant beer outdoors on a warm night in Greenwich Village.

A 1993 bottle! Pours a deep red brown. Smells and tastes of chocolatey malt. A little watery in the finish with a trace of marmite.

bhensonb (10733) - Woodland, California, USA - FEB 3, 2007
Nice mildly malty browny ale aroma. Nice ruby coppery color. The head went away so fast I can only say it was whitish. Very smooth, so smooth as Newcastle Brown. However, it has more of a malty brown ale taste. So if NB is step one for a newby, this could be step two. There’s even some hop at the end, but it is overbalanced by malty sweetness. Nicely drinkable, especially on a coldish day.

brokensail (10635) - Orange County, California, USA - MAY 10, 2011
A: The beer pours a dark amber color with a finger of off-white head sitting on top. S: Intensely sweet on the nose with a big time dark fruit character, possibly prunes and raisins. Some toffee, caramel, and brown sugar gives additional sweetness as does the hint of chocolate. T: Sweet toffee and brown sugar are present all the way through. Some mild dark fruit notes and perhaps a hint of nuttiness and toasted bread. M: Light to medium in body with a medium carbonation. O: A little too sweet and not much else going on.

Bottle. Reddish brown pour with a large frothy off-white head that was mostly lasting with good lacing. Light toasted malt aroma. Medium body with soft carbonation. Moderate sweet malty flavor with a short finish. Below average, but drinkable.
