Ungstrup (31471) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - FEB 14, 2006
A yellow beer with a lazing very thin white head. The aroma is of straw and corn - and so is the flavor, leading to a dry end, over a thin body. I’m impressed that a 4.1% beer can be so boring.

Papsoe (25069) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - FEB 19, 2006
(Bottle 33 cl) Pale pilsener golden with a small, crude head. Very neutral aroma - perhaps with a touch of malt if I have to think positive. Very thin and watery body with notes of sulphur. Bitter, hoppy finish. 120206

UPDATED: AUG 19, 2009 Can. As Saxon 4.1. A quite pale yellow-golden beer with a minimal white head. Weak and boring nose, actually not very pleasant either, with corn and some pale malts. Hints of fruityness. Fizzy, watery mouthfeel with a little bitterness, and grains. Slightly papery mouthfeel towards the finish, which is as uninteresting as the rest of the beer. Rating: 3-2-3-2-6-1.6. (090819)

Can, thx to oh6gdx. A clear, golden beer with a nice off-white head leaving nice lacings. Cooked vegetables and corn-like sweetness in the aroma, not awful, but hardly inviting. Cooked vegetables and corn in the flavor too, quite sweet. There’s also a fruity touch, but just a hint of hoppy bitterness. Medium to thin, sweetish mouthfeel. The finish continues the DMS path, and has a little bitterness for decency. A beer the world don’t need. (081206)
