Meh... pretty tasty pour, looks pretty in a glass. Nothing particularly notable regarding taste, palate, etc. Makes a good yard bitters or porch bitters.

14.9oz can -pours clear caramel with offwhite head. Nose is caramel and floral hops. Has that British creamy body. Flavor adds toffee. Light body. Balanced but not too tasty. Latent coffee presence. Totally inoffensive and quite drinkable. Cheers.

14.9oz. can. Aroma of lightly sweet, nutty malt, mildly herbal, floral and fruity hop, with notes of toast, caramel and faint woodiness. Mostly clear medium amber-red in color, with a foamy, lasting, off-white head. Flavor profile is very lightly bitter, spicy and earthy to start, turning sweeter and fruity with some very faint toasty caramel malt and a touch of biscuit and honey late. For all its visible effervescence, none comes across on the palate and it could certainly use some. Light, watery feel, body is extremely light as well. Drinkable, as long as its somewhat cold.

Can @ Greg’s house picked up in the Midwest. Pours a bit hazy reddish brown appearance with a tan head. Somewhat buttery, toffee, slightly burnt, earthy aroma. Light, a bit thin, burnt sugar, a touch fruity flavor. Doesn’t taste incredibly fresh.

Amber in color and tan foam. Lack of head may be due to age of beer. Taste of sweet malts and toffee. Very thin. Tastes likes cain’s mild without the hops. I would like to taste a fresher beer.

Papsoe (25054) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - OCT 8, 2007
(Can 44 cl) Courtesy of Bov. Clear, amber golden with a creamy, off-white head leaving some laces. Light in body, light notes of nuts, an edge of cardboard and a vague, underlying tartness. Dry finish with a subdued bitterness. 061007

Christian (14071) - Odense, DENMARK - DEC 27, 2010
Amber with a small white head. Aroma of grass and caramel. Sweet grassy and caramel flavour with a slightly bitter finish

Smells like leather. Pours a clear brown with a short lived head. Taste is watery malt. Finish is somewhat bitter.

Can.
After waiting an eternity for a single (a 4-pack costs $10 at Spec’s), my patience was rewarded in Austin, as I bought a single for $1.50. Thank goodness I only bought one... Aroma is wet autumn leaves soaked in dank maple syrup and wet biscuits. Flavor is coppery malt and stale biscuit. Pours an average tea brown, by the way. Watery mouthfeel. Good thang I only spent $1.50 on one.

ttoadee (1692) - Austin, Texas, USA - JUN 3, 2012
From can. Light brown pour, no real head. Malt on the nose, and maybe a handful of dark fruit. Slightly bitter across the tongue, but it seems more from the carbonation than hops. Thin finish, with a slight hop bitterness. I expected more.
