RoyceH (1198) - Hesperange, LUXEMBOURG - DEC 29, 2005
Smooth bitter, pulls with a thick creamy head. Plenty of malt, little bit of hops. Not much to be said, average mass-produced beer.

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - DEC 11, 2005
(Can 50 cl) Amber coloured with a handsome head created by the nitrogen released from the widgety thing in the can. The nitrogen also creates the flat mouthfeel. Very mild and smooth without much aroma or bitterness. But pleasant and highly drinkable. 081002

Nitro can. Coppery brown color with the usual thick, creamy nitro head. Nose is light malt and grain with a trace of bitterness. Taste of faint malt with a light bitter finish. Its all right, nothing spectacular but not awful either.

UPDATED: DEC 14, 2008 [can - 440 ml] Clear copper. Lots of bubbles and a fizzy tan head. Very light amount of malts in the nose with a sour bitterness as well. Dry malty flavor with a bitterness at the end and a watery and metallic taste. Maybe this would be better on draft? Ill have to maybe give it another try, but I dont think Im that big a fan.

its alright, i wouldnt buy it but if someone gives you one it aint so bad, the extra smooth one is nicer cos its smoother, just a bit like boddingtons really.

Storm (2684) - Amager, DENMARK - OCT 17, 2005
44 cl can. No yeast in bottom.Reddish brown colour with a creamy head. Malty nose, not much. Notes of caramel and malt in the flavour without much bitterness. Very common indeed.

scotty (1172) - SCOTLAND - SEP 25, 2005
Canned draught version. Similar to Velvet & Boddingtons, but with a touch more malt on the palate, still poor tho

This is a nice one! Light beer, orangey red colour with creamy white head. It has a light caramel taste.

HogTownHarry (6381) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - SEP 21, 2005
UPDATED: JAN 26, 2006 Draught. At Pub Italia, Ottawa. Poured slightly hazy amber-copper with a typical lasting white draught head. Aroma malty, nutty, hint of caramel and pehaps hops. Taste is a typical macro bitter - not really fresh enough, but malty enough to hide the hint of adjuncts I was picking up, pretty thin but creamy mouthfeel. Wouldnt bother ordering this in the UK, but for an Ontario pub its a beacon of welcome amidst all the InBev crap we usually see.

Medium thick white head, copper colour. Creamy, rather light but with a bitter end. A nice drink
