I liked this beer actually. I can see how people say it tastes a little like hay, because it does, but in a good way for me. Not really as flavorfull as a real ale, but quite refreshing, especially on a hot day. I would drink it again.

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - DEC 11, 2005
(Bottle 50 cl) Fully golden with a tall, handsome head. Very thin and watery with a weak, fruity aroma. No real traces of the Maris Otter malts or the Liberty hops. Looks good but the taste is disappointing. 100802

An ale for non-ale drinkers? Thjis was launched to reach thos who are not too fond of the Young’s real ales, so it is a sort of compromize between a bitter and a lager. Served cold it is hard to get the nuances in flavour, but it certainly quenches the thirst on a hot day!

Dark honey yellow with steady yellow whip cream head. Sweet and floral aroma with Liberty hop aroma. Fruity, grassy, trefoil flavor with late bitterness. Mouthfeel is smooth though palate is a bit thin. Good session beer.

Draught at the Young’s Ram Inn, attached tot the brewery. A very strange mouldy aroma, perhaps sulphury. Woody, strawy taste. Not very good.

Tried at The Lamb & Flag, Covent Garden, London. I agree with Badgerben..this one most definitly was like liquid hay...but on your last night in London, hard to bitch...

Lamb & Flag, Covent Garden, London. Oh good grief... it tasted like a bale of hay. So depressing to end my Europe trip on such a note. Oh well, drinking anything on the sidewalk of Rose St, outside Lamb & Flag while listening to a New Orleans jazz band on the second floor is great no matter what.
