yespr (29691) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - DEC 6, 2008
55 cL bottle. Pours clear and golden orange to amber with a huge creamy, tan and slowly diminishing head - leaving a nice lacing on the glass - clearly a 5er. Roasted caramel malty with a light breadish note. Light yeasty too. Flavour is breadish and mild metallic with a lasting yeasty impression. Mild bitterness in an otherwise smooth finish.

Ungstrup (28462) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAR 13, 2003
An amber beer with not much head. The aroma is sweet and malty - very nice. And so is the flavor - but maybe a bit too sweet.

Papsoe (25094) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - NOV 23, 2005
(Bottle 55 cl) Light, nutty brown colour with a decent head. Nice, malty nose. Full-bodied with some - as promised - warming alcohol. Classical malty flavours with a note of nuts. More bitter than the same brewery’s Nut Brown Ale. 080401

Copper color. A dry Ale, with some caramel and toffee flavor, and a good hopping. Too dry to be suitable for winter, but pleasant.
