It is of a beautiful dark golden colour with a deep lustre. It has the color of honey and the transparency of spring water, as well as an excellent body and taste. It is very well saturated with carbon dioxide and has a pleasant, noble hops bitter, as well as a unique malt-hops taste.

Very dark for a lager. Sweet, feels a bit stale. Actually I canít figure out anything really positive to say about this. It tasted like a strong lager, yet it didnít have the nice full eastern european non-bitter hoppy taste. I prefered Okocim over this.

Bottle: Gold, light head and lacing. The nose is lightly malty, some dusty husk and light adjunct. Not very hoppy but the alcohol is faint. The flavor is clean, light, a bit hoppy in the finish and a light clean watery body. Nice, but a bit lacking.

Poured it ice cold and all I could smell was alcohol; isoprpyl to be exact. Started smelling a little better as it warmed up. Theyíre right about it having the color of honey (and a slight honey flavor to boot). Very sweet profile, raisin, prune, dried apricot, grape juice, malt. Sweet finish. Donít think Iíll be able to finish the bottle. Cheers!

Dark yellow colored, little white head. Aroma is good with some hops, caramelly sweet malts and mild alcohol. Medium bodied. Flavor has nice character of chocolate, sweetness and hops, mild alcohol lasts in aftertaste.

bottle, Pours a see-through gold, though not without discernable strength of color. The head is foamy, white, and lingers for a while. The aroma is basically of fresh barley and that generic, corny lager sweetness. Not much going on in the way of taste either, though it is certainly more robust than many other pale lagers Iíve consumed. Itís obviously light and packs not much more than a breadiness in the initial wash over my palate. The finish brings out a bit of paper and corn husks. This isnít laughably bad and I probably wouldnít down anyone who may have chosen to sup this, but itís definitely not my idea of a savory brew. . . considerable for refreshment on a hot summer day. Whatever, Iím going for an IIPA as soon as this glass is empty.

Papsoe (25068) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUL 16, 2006
(Can 50 cl) Clear, amber golden with a crreamy, off-white head. Malty, lightly caramelish aroma. Full-bodied with accents of sweet caramel on a fairly decent malt base, while the alcohol doesnít appear until the finish. Very discreet bitterness. Sort of like a double Vienna really. 160706
