Hansen (6794) - Assentoft, DENMARK - AUG 24, 2006
LIght yellow and unclear beer. Has a fine, lasting head, white. Not much aroma, perhaps hints of clear hops. Flavor is mild, the beer is brewed on barley and corn. Not real good. Palate is...well, ok, perhaps a bit thin. Nothing new here.

Papsoe (25084) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - AUG 16, 2006
(Bottle 35,5 cl) Clear, pilsener golden with a handsome, rich, white head with good retention. A light tartness in the aroma. Medium body dominated by brewing cereal (the label states rice) and an underlying tartness. No bitterness to speak of. 150806

harlequinn (2744) - Tacoma, Washington, USA - AUG 8, 2006
Bottle at a restaurant I am not able to pronounce or type correctly. Not very good, but sitting out on the patio of this place at the very least was thirst quenching. Sopay, with a little bit of watery maltiness and strong smell and flavor of adjuncts. Sort of like a combaintion of rice krispies and corn pops cereal maltiness, except instead of milk you use water.

FrankJohansen (3604) - Sabro, DENMARK - AUG 5, 2006
Bottle. Pale yellow colour with a small white head. Aroma and flavour of malt with notes of citrus. Refreshing indeed, but not very good. Over carbonated.

Sanchex (224) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 3, 2006
Drank plenty of this in Vietnam. I think itís brewed to 4% there. Actually one of the more flavourfull beer I cam across. Not saying it was a good thing, just nice to have something different. Very heavy carbonation and astrigent taste. Tongue coating mouthfeel. In my opinion, the best beer in Southeast Asia is Saigon Special. Cheers!

now the beer i had didnt look like the one to the left but iím assuming they are the same. had this in Saigon, how apropriate at a great viatnamese restaurant. served warm with a mug of ice. fairly similiar to other beers i had but it wasnt brewed by heineken or carlsberg! somewhat sweet and grainy with a bit of corn sting on the end.

JonMoore (1885) - Loughborough, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - JUL 20, 2006
Bottle. Golden colour with a large beady white head. Malty aroma with some hops. Interesting it looks quite highly carbonated but isnít! Mouthfeel is a bit thin but not too bad. Reasonable malty taste with some lingering bitterness. Much better than I feared.

johndoughty (4057) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - JUL 15, 2006
A pleasant surprise. Golden and malty with no carbonisation.Poured with a small head and had a nice well rounded mouthfeel. Lingering aftertaste. I didnít expect a lot from this one but really enjoyed drinking it.

Weak grainy aroma. Pale, yellow coloured with a thin, not-lasting head. Taste is sweet, grainy, sjust slighly bitter. Quite watery. Dull.
