yespr (31220) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - JUN 12, 2008
75 cL bottle. Pours semi-explosive with a hazy orange colour, small yeast floating elements and a slowly collapsing white head. Orange fruit and yeasty aroma. Flavour is light malty with a solid orange fruity flavour. Light yeasty note in addition to this. Ends the same way to a citric lingering flaour. Nice and thirst quencing.

Papsoe (25085) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - AUG 2, 2005
(Bottle 33 cl) More amber than blonde actually, hazy with lots of impurities. Small, dense head. Rather pronounced bitterness which I find unusual for it’s type. Spicy, aromatic - almost flowery. Quite refreshing. 250303

Warning! Early amateur rating! A one dimensional but drinkable amber coloured beer/ Slightly watery and not much flavour. Average.

fiulijn (14599) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 18, 2008
Cloudy blond color. It has some sweet malty aroma, with a citrusy touch. As pouring it, it was dense (as much as possible for a low gravity Ale), and indeed the body is reasonable, with a good flavor of dry malt and light cereals. I wonder which hop they use (Golding? Hallertau?), but indeed it’s good, both for the quite strong bitterness and its aromatic contribution. A good one in the French beer landscape.

Bottle. Nice head with good duration. Color is golden. Aroma and taste are malt, hops, citrus, yeast and grass.
