Ungstrup (34023) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - AUG 21, 2007
Draft. A copper colored beer with a lazing white head. The aroma is sweet malty combined with a light note of caramel. The flavor is sweet malty with quite strong notes of caramel. The alcohol is just barely felt on the tongue - and then a flowery hoppy note sets in and leads to a good bitter finish. Very fresh.

MoritzF (9286) - Ottobrunn, GERMANY - JUL 24, 2007
(draught at the brewery) Slightly hazy, amber colour with a big foamy, slightly off-white head. Moderately sweet and toasted malty, slightly bready nose with a touch of smoke and citrousy fruity notes. Light bitter flavour with an even lighter sweetish edge, almost medium bodied with a moderate, well-carbonated and smooth mouthfeel. Slightly toasted, malt-accented taste with smoked malt (or is it the “offene Befeuerung” that evokes the impression?), leaving room for a subtle fruitiness; moderately dry, slightly bitter and smokey finish. Not only a well-quaffable but superb and even complex brew. Highly recommended.

UPDATED: JUL 15, 2015 On tap at the brewpub: Amber coloured, quite firm off-white head; distinctive sweet-dark-malty nose with a touch of roasted malt; robust sweet-bitter flavour, medium-bodied, soft MF; slightly lingering sweet-malty finish with a distinctive touch of smoked malt in the aftertaste. Good and moreish..........

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - NOV 18, 2006
(On tap) Clear, amber golden with a creamy, off-white head leaving some lacework. Lightly caramelish aroma. Medium body with a good malty feel and a hoppy - distinctly hoppy - finish where also some alcohol shows. 101106

Lighter chestnut, very clear; cream-coloured, dense & big head. Rich bread nose, some Kümmel included. Lots of caramel too, maybe even some Maillard. And, incongruously, Chinese shrimps in batter (sorry). Eeeeh! - that's a nice bitterness for a German brew. Good malty (sweet and roasted) underbuild, but the noble German-type hops reign. I still suspect Maillard. Titillating mouthfeel & carbonation as from mineral water. Medium to full-bodied. Rather long bitterish aftertaste, with malt-syrup. As John & Edo said, this beer is far above the general Franconian level. Very good - thanks to L. Meulders who has a good nose for a good pint.

Wow! This was a surprise after all those mediocre Franconian beers. Hoppy aroma with light sweet malts. Dark amber color, beige head, good lace, certainly good looking. Light sweet, full, soft, some caramel, hoppy, light bitter. Medium long bitter finish. One beer I could get used to!

UPDATED: AUG 30, 2004 Red amber color. Slight apple aroma. Medium bodied. Hopbitter, apricot flavor with some caramel. Bitter and fruity aftertaste. Re-rate: Just a hint of smoke in the background. I like this beer more and more.
