12 fl oz bottle. Pours clear orange with a little white head. Light malty aroma, slight fruit note. Woody and caramel malt flavour, dry and almost woody. Bitter hoppy note towards the finish. Dry finish. I miss some sweetness, otherwise a nice brew.

A hazy amber beer with a disappearing white head. The aroma is sweet with primary notes of caramel, and so is the flavor.

Bottle. Pours a clear amber color with an off-white head. Malty and slightly grassy caramel aroma. Sweet malty and slightly fruity caramel flavor with some hoppy hints. Sweet malty and fruity finish with some bitter aftertaste.

oh6gdx (26488) - Vasa, FINLAND - JUN 12, 2007
Bottled. Amber colour, mediumsized beige creamy head, leaves nice lace. Aroma is zest, caramel malt and some flowery hops. Flavour is grass, flowery hops, bigtime malts as well as some frutiy hints. Some nice earthy notes in the finish along with fruits and grass. Really pleasantly balanced brew. Refreshing in the warm summer.

[Bottled at Stockholm Beer Festival] Clear reddish amber, near no head. Buttery malt aroma. Low hop rate, some butter and caramel, but the clean, hard mouthfeel doesn’t let much flavor out.

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAR 23, 2006
(Bottle 35,5 cl) Pours a clear, dark amber with a small, creamy, off-white head. Rather sweet aroma with distinct caramel. Medium body with loads of caramel and perhaps a touch of nuts. Very vague underlying tartness. Quite lovely and unusual - and by far the most interesting CC I’ve ever had (although it isn’t really saying much....) 230306

Warning! Early amateur rating! Brown lager. Crisp and refreshing. Good malt depth and a long malty dry finish. Good.

Bottle. Clear deep amber color, medium white head. Aroma of caramel biscuit. taste is similar. Plain.
