From tap at the Pyramid taphouse in Walnut Creek. Pours clear and golden yellow with a small white head. Aroma is light cornish and crisp hoppy. Light fruity and mild malt flavoured. Light bodied. Crisp bitter and dry finish.

Ungstrup (28448) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUL 14, 2009
Draft at the alehous in Walnut Creek. A light golden beer with a thin white head. The aroma is sweet with light notes of malt and citrus and vanilla - a bit odd. The flavor is sweet with notes of straw and light notes of malt, leading to a lightly bitter finish. Boring.

Papsoe (25094) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - APR 24, 2006
(Bottle 35,5 cl) Slightly hazy pilsener golden with a small, off-white head. Very malty nose. Medium body with soft and rather sweet, malty notes - almost like the juice of soaked wheat. Decent as such, but not clean and crisp as a Kölsch is supposed to be. No bitterness. 290306

oh6gdx (20004) - Vasa, FINLAND - FEB 5, 2010
Bottled (thanks Kalevi). Deep golden colour, small off-white head. Aroma is mild fruits, some wood, earth and herbal notes. Mild notes of biscuits as well. Flavour is bready malts, biscuits, some herbal notes as well as mild wooden notes. Quite pleasant, but lacks a bit of the complexity the German ones have.

Deep blond color. Reminds me some German beer, but the poor ones, there is nothing special here.

Clear yellow color, small white head. Light fruity aroma. Light to medium bodied. Sweet, banana-mango fruity flavor. One-dimensional "fruit beer".

argo0 (11181) - Washington DC, USA - JUN 16, 2003
(Best by 7/2/03, consumed 6/16/03): Clear pale golden body topped by quickly dissipating medium white head. Aroma is sweet and pine/herbal. Taste is apple up front, quickly turning to a grassy/herbal hoppiness. Dry acidic finish. Light watery body -- a lawnmower beer a touch above the average one.
