Hazy red - brown beer. Good fluffy off white head. Palate is crispy and semi dry. Cinnamon. A little fruit - well buried. Dry finish. One dimensional over spiced beer. Drain pour.

Papsoe (25062) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUL 13, 2011
Bottle 50 cl. Courtesy of madmitch76. Pours a clear dark amber with a dense off-white and lacing head. Very spicy aroma - pine and ginger. Medium body, somewhat caramellish and a very ashy, bitter finish that doesn’t seem to derive from hops. Almost astringently bitter, herbal. 130711

Fin (10698) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 28, 2009
Bottle that I picked up from the brewery 23-01-09, and consumed 27-01-09 Pours chesnut colour with a white head. The aroma is subtley spicy but also with a touch of earthy hops as well. taste is really quite decent, I get a little blast of prune juice, some ginger, toffee and then the sweet malts flood through, also noting some nutmeg or similar in the mouth. Quite juicy and a touch of yeast showing at the end, nice beer. A7 A4 F7 P4 OV14 3.6
