The ABV and a strong carbonation makes it ideal for fat fish and

Papsoe (25089) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - DEC 24, 2006
(Bottle 50 cl) Alcohol is 6.9% according to the label. Pours a handsome, clear orangey brown with a somewhat rough, off-white head. Malty aroma with distinct notes of spruce needles. Solid, malty body with lots of sweetish, roasted malt. No real bitterness. OK as such, but not that bockish. 231206

MiP (13516) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - NOV 22, 2009
Bottle at EsBF09. Good roasted aroma, mild but nice. Clear dark red brown colour. Small stable off-white head. The flavour is also nicely roasted, with a good malt base. It is slightly citric, I am sure unintended. A shame with the citric note.

yngwie (13194) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAY 6, 2007
Bottle. Beige, hazy golden beer, almost without head, just some beige bubbles. Sour and citric nose with a little maltiness. The flavor is a bit sour as well, with malt and some citrusy hops, leading to a citric and malty finish. A medium-bodied beer I bet was infected. I love the Danish beer-awakening, but I would love it even more if the breweries had a little better control with the hygiene. (070427)
