yespr (29687) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - DEC 5, 2008
12 fl oz bottle. Pours clear and golden yellow to orange with a fully gone head. Vague mouldy aroma with a mild apple note coming through. Quite sweet apple flavoured with a very mild phenolic note. Sweetfruity finish with a light acidic touch. Main impression is a sweet cider though. Why they call it amber I dont get. Nice one.

Papsoe (25094) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - APR 25, 2006
(On tap) Clear, fully golden with a - rather unusual - creamy, white head that even leaves some laces. Discreet apple aroma. Very soft and smooth mouthfeel. Medium with a high degree of sweetness, vague accents of apples and other fruits. Somewhat perfumy Skittles accent. Lacks some acidity and edge, but very drinkable. 010406
