Papsoe (25083) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUL 7, 2007
(Bottle 50 cl) Clear, dark, amber golden with an off-white head leaving some lacework. Aroma of nuts and malts. Medium body with a fairly solid malt base and notes of caramel and nuts. Rather solid bitterness. Unfortunately the beer comes with a distinct fustiness, perhaps due to the clear glass bottle. 020707

oh6gdx (20902) - Vasa, FINLAND - APR 9, 2010
Bottled (from bierzwerg.de). Finally got my hands on this, so I stop buying this as cask version, from not remembering which I have had... Amber olour with mediumsized foamy slightly off-white head, that leaves some lae. Aroma is caramel malts, some mild toasted notes, mild nuttyness as well as some wooden and fruity notes. Flavour is quite similar, but the wooden notes are more evident.

harrisoni (14128) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - FEB 26, 2007
500ml bottle from Franglais, Calais. This used to be one of my favourite session bitters. How does it cope with being filtered and pasteurised? Amber colour with lasting thin off whtie head. Candy sugar, tea and earthy hop aroma, but there’s not that mouthfeel of a cask conditioned beer. Still, I like the hop profile on this beer. Some brown sugar in the mouth. Sharpish herby hop on finish. But it’s pasteurised and it ruins it. Some choc malt.

Christian (11276) - Odense, DENMARK - SEP 3, 2009
Amber with a small white head. Caramel and fruit aroma with strong diacetyl. Grassy hop flavour with diacetyl and skunky notes.

thewolf (11254) - Kolding, DENMARK - AUG 26, 2008
Bottle, bought @ YNWA, Kolding.
Pours deep brown-orange with a medium, staying, off-white head. Aroma has caramel, good hoppiness, some pine and flowers. A light touch of honey. Medium carbonation, okay mouthfeel. Fair flavour, fine caramel with a good, dry and bitter hoppy finish. Fair beer.
