Clean amber color; big head. Macro Swiss brewers don’t lie: cereals aroma over all, then it becomes soapy. Very simple flavor, with caramel. Correct bitterness, maybe a bit too low. Not bad, but I will forget it soon.

Grovlam (4152) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - AUG 1, 2007
Bottle. [Courtesy of Papsoe, another great tasting session] Small off-white head that mostly diminished. Clear flat looking body with an amber color. Spare lacework. Aroma of bread, grain, fruit, caramel, toasted malt. Light to medium bodied with an average carbonation. Light sweet malty base flavor. Sweet bread like finish. A bit thin texture but very drinkable. 27-07-07

Ungstrup (29168) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUL 29, 2007
Bottled. An amber beer with a thin fast disappearing head. The aroma is sweet and very malty with a light caramel accent. The flavor is sweet malty with light notes of fruit and bread - a bit boring.

Papsoe (25089) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUL 28, 2007
(Bottle 30 cl) Courtesy of Bov. Clear, amber golden with a small, white head. Lightly fruity caramelish nose. Medium body with lightly sweet caramel and some roasted malt - even a touch of overripe fruit. The finish is dry. Not really a Brown Ale but a pleasant little beer nonetheless. 270707

Bottled (Thanks Bov!). Copper coloured, small white head, leaves lace. Aroma is honeyish, sour fruitish and caramel malts. Flavour is perfumed, quite sour hoppy with some hints of yeast and some berries. Some slight metallic hints also present. Quite dry palate.
