yespr (30713) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - OCT 11, 2007
33 cL bottle (as Pietra Ambré, same ABV). Pours golden orange to light brown with a small white head. Grainy and malty aroma, slight metallic. Sweet fruity flavour with a nice caramel maltbase. The fruityness blends nicely into the bitterness in the finish. Very nice.

Ungstrup (29107) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAY 5, 2003
An amber beer with no head. The aroma is very faint. The flavor is sweet with notes of caramel and münchner malts. The flavor is also flat and ends on a slight bitterness. An average beer - but below my expectations from pretty good reviews.

Papsoe (25090) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - AUG 2, 2005
(Bottle 33 cl) Deep golden, filtered with a fairly tall head. Very pronounced bitterness - and nothing much more really. The chestnut doesn’t really add any flavour. Quite a disappointment. 150202

Warning! Early amateur rating! Crisp and dry beer. A bitter and smoky flavour blooms and carries through the finish to the aftertaste. Gets better if you persevere but not great.

Amber color. Some malt aroma. The taste reminds me the sea; too poor to keep a record for this…
