An orange beer with a small very fast disappearing head. The aroma is sweet malty. The flavor is sweet malty and hoppy with a slightly bitter end. An OK pilsener.

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - APR 23, 2005
UPDATED: JUN 13, 2005 (Can 50 cl) Not sure I’m in the right spot for this. My can only reads "Warka" and 6,2% ABV. And even though the cool Warka website gives you a shitload of information, it’s not about their beers and only in freaking Polish. Anyways, this lager is neatly golden with a small, creamy head. Very soft and pleasant and pretty low in carbonation. Not much body to carry the strong alcohol, but it’s no problem as this goes down easily. An OK strong lager. 140604

Leighton (18221) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 20, 2012
Can at home in London. Pours crystal clear, bright gold with a large, sturdy, white foam head; listen, this beer looks pretty much perfect, so on appearance it’s a stunner. Nose holds lots of rich cereal, some hay, lightly toasted sugars. Medium sweet flavor, plenty of bread, suggestions of alcohol, light honey and apples, almost no bitterness, perhaps just some light hay. Medium bodied with average carbonation. Sweet finish with modest crispness, lots of bready sugars, some further honey notes, cereal, hints of corn. An interesting beer. It falls somewhere between pale lager (lower ABV pale lager, that is) and European strong lager. I certainly would not call this a straight-ahead pale lager, as it just has a bit too much kick; at the same time, it isn’t a classical European strong - it just isn’t syrupy enough, it doesn’t have any alcohol warmth. Aside from this identity crisis, it’s a fine cheap Polish lager.citrus,

Canned. Thanks to larsniclas. Golden color, white head. Malty aroma with some spicy notes. Malty, grainy flavor. A touch of alcohol and with a rather weak finish.
