fonefan (50544) - VestJylland, DENMARK - AUG 3, 2006
Bottle. Clear coppery color with a thin white head. Spicy and slightly bitter nose with floral hints, hops and sweet malts. Sweet and malty taste with a slightly spicy middle and a light, floral finish. Aftertaste is slightly bitter with a touch of malt.

yespr (47002) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - DEC 6, 2008
55 cL bottle. Pours clear and golden orange to amber with a huge creamy, tan and slowly diminishing head - leaving a nice lacing on the glass - clearly a 5er. Roasted caramel malty with a light breadish note. Light yeasty too. Flavour is breadish and mild metallic with a lasting yeasty impression. Mild bitterness in an otherwise smooth finish.

3.2
Ungstrup (38215) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAR 13, 2003
An amber beer with not much head. The aroma is sweet and malty - very nice. And so is the flavor - but maybe a bit too sweet.

joergen (28949) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - NOV 2, 2005
Bottled. Clear orange coloured with a small off white head. Sweet aroma of malts, caramel and spices with notes of hops. Sweet flavour of malts, caramel and fruits with hoppy notes. Hoppy finish.

Bottled. Rubyish amber colour, mediumsized white head. Aroma is caramel malts and some sweeter hops. Flavour is metallic, caramelly and grassy/earthy hoppy. Nice but quite watery.

Clear gold, absolutely no head whatsoever. No aroma at all. Taste of bitter hops and vinegar.

madmitch76 (25250) - , Essex, ENGLAND - NOV 8, 2009
29th April 2008. A pleasantly malty ale with a very light touch of hops at the end. Inoffensive and pleasant.

3.1
Papsoe (25059) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - NOV 23, 2005
(Bottle 55 cl) Light, nutty brown colour with a decent head. Nice, malty nose. Full-bodied with some - as promised - warming alcohol. Classical malty flavours with a note of nuts. More bitter than the same brewery’s Nut Brown Ale. 080401

3.5
Leighton (22019) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 17, 2013
Bottle shared at The Kernel - London. Many thanks to Fergus and Samuel. Pours clear gold with a creamy white head. Nose of bready pale malts and light dough. Medium sweet flavor with dry bread, light wood. Medium bodied with fine carbonation. Sweet finish with further dried bread, some dried and leathery fruits. Decent. Pretty well balanced.
