yespr (31470) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - SEP 21, 2007
33 cL bottle. Pours hazy dark brown with a huge creamy light brown head. Sweet roasted malt aroma with a light note of honey. Slight sweet into a more herbal and slight acidic finish with bitterness. Reveals some malty and yeasty mixtured flavour with a slight edge and some softness from the honey. Good but nothing really thrilling.

Ungstrup (29474) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - SEP 20, 2004
A red brown beer with a fine light brown head. The aroma is sweet with notes of caramel, spices, rosehips, and honey. The flavor is dry and sweet with notes of loads of honey, but also rosehips, wood, and fruit.

Papsoe (25085) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUN 5, 2005
(Bottle 33 cl) The name of this beer might hint at a honey-beer, but that is very far from the truth. Very dark brown beer with a nice, full brownish head with an excellent retention. Spiced but with what isn’t clearly detectable - apart from the candied sugars. Some dried fruits. But the flavours unfold slowly all the way through this beers as it warms up. simply gets better and better. A sublime experience. 170697

madmitch76 (15309) - , Essex, ENGLAND - NOV 11, 2009
6th May 2008. Rich brown beer made with honey. Definite treacle note but also faint bubblegum. Dry finish with a coca cola bitterness. Yeasty nose. Faint Melon and Apple notes. Complex and hard to pin down.

Amber color. Good one, maybe the aroma could be enhanced, but presents a very nice malt, caramel, spices taste (not sweet).
