From tap. Pours hazy brown with a creamy head. Becomes clear brown after a while. Aroma is quite caramel sweet with a slight hop note. Flavour sweet candy like malt, only vaguely bitter. Soft malty finish

Ungstrup (38595) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAY 5, 2004
A nut brown beer with a very white and dense head. The aroma is sweet with notes of nuts and caramel. The flavor is of nuts, hops, and roasted malt with a very dry end. The mouthfeel is very soft.

omhper (25831) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - JUN 23, 2008
Draught at Loch Ness, Stockholm. Nut brown, creamy head. Lemony nose. sweet and neutral. A touch of toffee, but mostly void - like whipped water. Blown up like a baloon with nitrogen. Finishes somewhat metallic but without bitterness. Plain bad.

Papsoe (25055) - 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

Leighton (22555) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 3, 2011
Keg at the Redan. Pours clear, amber-gold with a dense, white head. Some doughy malts on the nose, nothing else. Flavor is pretty wretched, some doughy malts, cheese, chemicals, leaves. Light bodied, smooth with soft carbonation. Some sugars in the finish, bland, artificial malts. This is almost not drinkable.

Rasmus40 (22063) - Beder, Aarhus, DENMARK - SEP 16, 2013
Can @ a sportspub in Ayia Napa, Cyprus. Clear amber with a dense and lasting off-white head. Aroma is sweet, malty and caramel. Flavor is medium sweet and light bitter. Sweet finish. 160913
