Papsoe (25094) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUN 23, 2005
(Bottle 25 cl) Fully golden, very small head. Some malt in the flavour, but primarily dry and quite hoppy. Some late sweetness. The name "1516" is a reference to the year of the German "Reinheitsgebot" hence this is an all-malt beer. 250505

omhper (18972) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - OCT 22, 2003
Canned. Orange colour, coarse head. Corn aroma. Sweet, mellow and fruity. Soapy finish. I'd guess that 1516 represents the best-by date.

Blond color; creamy head. Very light aroma; the taste is maltier than usual, and of course the final bitterness quite long.
