Somewhat reminiscent of receiving a golden shower from a dying cart horse. But it’s cheap and if you can tolerate a couple of trays of it, will get you hammered.

It would be a challenge to get a worse beer than this. Thoroughly disgusting stuff, truly, truly awful. Somehow it’s impossible to rate this correctly, which would be somewhere like -10: they should pay you to drink it.

I’ve been saving this for a birthday treat. Golden amber colour with a fluffy off-white head. The smell is not appetising. Slightly off oranges, sheet aluminium, basement and skunk. Sweet, metallic with malt flavour and little else. There’s worse beer on the macro-market that pretends to be better and this is pretty bad.

KimJohansen (10423) - Frederiksberg C, DENMARK - OCT 6, 2010
Clear golden with a small off white head. Aroma had toasted malt, caramel and hints of grassy hops. Flavor had toasted malt, caramel and hints of hops. Finished dry.

Ungstrup (34690) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - OCT 5, 2010
Can picked up in a liquor store in Greymouth. An amber beer with an off-white head. The aroma has notes of citrus, straw, and malt. The flavor is very sweet with notes of malt and caramel, leading to a dry and alcoholic finish inspite of it only being 4% ABV.

44 cL can, courtesy of Ungstrup. Pours clear and golden orange with a small white head. Aroma is toasted malty, light caramelish. Mild fruity, slight cornish. Bitter and slight caramelish finish. Ends dry and slight bitter.

DuffMan (9610) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 9, 2009
Can. Pours a bright clear orange amber. Bready caramel aroma. Sweet grainy flavour with caramel notes, mild bitterness. Truly not bad, and compared to Ranfuly, quite good actually (but you could say as much about a nice cold glass of water too).

Ardi (32) - NEW ZEALAND - MAY 17, 2009
Used to be 3.5 alc./Vol. You know, not a bad beer. For its price, good value. If you like a bitter beer., it isn’t overly bitter, has a pleasing nose, good head and a mild homebrew taste, probably lacks a bit of robustness, but is very drinkable.

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - FEB 8, 2008
(Can 33 cl) Clear, amber golden with a creamy, off-white head, dissipating rather quickly while leaving a discreet lacework. Aroma of caramel and perhaps even a whiff of hops. Light-bodied, high in carbonation, a little malt and some nuttiness. The finish is dry. For a macro this ain’t too bad. Not even sure that it should be classified as a Pale Lager. 290108

Stubbie @ the neighbours 13/01/07 - Brown std NZ quaffer. Slightly malty, sweetish normal offering. Probably one squirt of caramel sauce away from a Red or a Brown. Only thing going for it is it’s cheap. Probably best a beer for the rural teenager.....
