It is a light alcohol drink with not too strong bitterness but rather soft taste; therefore, it’s easy to drink it up.

Ungstrup (29988) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - FEB 24, 2003
A yellow beer with no head. Slightly sour aroma - probably from the corn used for the brewing but also slightly malty. The flavor is dominated by the corn sourness combined with a slight sweetness and a slight bitterness. There is absolutely no aftertaste. One of the most boring beers I've ever had.

Papsoe (25074) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - NOV 27, 2005
UPDATED: MAR 1, 2006 (Bottle 33 cl) Jamaican version. Pilsener golden with a creamy head. Malty nose. Medium body with notes of malt and brewing cereal. Some vague hops in the finish. Standard, bland lager but not really offensive. 010306

(Bottle 33 cl) British version brewed by Charles Wells in Bedford.
Neatly pilsener golden with a small head. No real aroma, no real flavour either apart from a sticky, chicken fodderish sweetness. No hops. "One of the world’s great beers" the label claims, yeah right.... 4/2/3/2/7=1.8 200801

fiulijn (15990) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 9, 2004
Blond color; no head. Paper-like, evident corn, poor. A useless beer.<font></font>

yngwie (14762) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - DEC 31, 2005
Bottled. Golden beer with a small white head. Light malty aroma with some hayish notes. Mild flavor of sweet malt. Sour-fruity and light bitter finish. I’m sure its good in its native warm, country, but I see no point in importing it to northern Europe. Except for the money-part of course. (051231)
