680 ml flip-top bottle. Pale golden colour, thick lasting white head. Heavy sulfurous aroma with a dose of skunk. Flavour is fairly perfumy, along with some sulfur and minerally flavour. Skunky with a touch of spice. I dont know exactly whats wrong with it, but theres definitely something wrong with it.

Full gold colour. Rich head holds reasonably well for a pale lager, and leaves lace on the glass. This is a definite plus for a style that usually doesnt do this. The aroma is grassy, grainy-malty with an alcoholic undertone. The alcohol comes through even more in the flavour, battling the light pale malts for control of the palate. What you ultimately have a light but fairly clean pale lager ruined by a superfluous alcohol taste. It doesnt meld with the other elements and is inappropriate for the style. 6% is too strong for a regular beer, but quite frankly it doesnt cut it at all if what you want is the raunch of a malt liquor. There is too much graininess for this to work as a mocne-style. Sitting in between the three styles, it is the best of none and the worst of all. (Same with Singha, which is also a 6% pale lager. The concept simply doesnt work).

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - AUG 1, 2005
(Bottle 65 cl) Pretty, orangey golden beer with some impurities. Small head. First sensation is sweet malt, then a warming alcohol takes over. Actually reminds me a bit of a dry white wine! Quite unusual. Appears stronger than it actually is - a bit alcoholic. 060401

Bottled 0,65 ltr
Nice flip-top bottle! Dark honey-golden, good foamy white head. Unclean (rubbery) hoppy aroma. Medium-bodied. Malty. Some sugar also underlying. Finish is harsh. Basicly a normal bulk lager with a bit higher ABV.

Trev (2023) - Lakeville, Minnesota, USA - JUL 22, 2005
Pours clear deep gold with white bubbly head that has some staying power. Highly carbonated. Grassy aroma with malty undertones. Very malty flavour. Pretty basic lager.

It says on the label "Biere Blonde Speciale". I dont think so. Not very special at all. Apart from a bit more of an alcohol whack, this is pretty much standard stuff. Its actually a rather attractive bright golden colour with soft, but insistent, carbonation and a small, tenacious head. But the aroma is very dull. I dont know whether this is an all malt brew, but the aroma certainly suggested corn. Otherwise, its stagnant malt and a delightful underlying hint of vomit. Better on the palate. Clean enough but theres not much hop character until a rather sudden bite on the finish, that hangs around for a while afterwards. But thats a bit late in the day and compromised by an underlying sweetness that starts early and continues throughout. So the final effect is more bittersweet than crisp. A bit better than your standard swill, but not much. 650ml bottle from Tesco. At least the swing top bottle will come in handy.

UPDATED: JUL 16, 2005 65cl. Pale yellow. Big head settles down to a thin sticky spider web-like foam. Rough hops and malt sweetness. Like a weak Pilsener. Not great and not worth $5 but better than a large number of Pale Lagers sold here.
