Bottled. A hazy light yellow beer with a huge white head. The aroma has notes of straw, spices, and lemon. The flavor is sweet with notes of hops, spices, and lemon on a lightly malty background. The body is light. Thanks Papsoe for sharing.

ACBF. Very pale gold beer, little white head. Light palate, crisp and dry. Dry pale malt with good bittering hops. Finishes dry - in fact it’s too dry overall but the flavour is alright.

Papsoe (25056) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUL 13, 2011
Bottle 50 cl. Courtesy of madmitch76. Pours somewhat hazy yellow with a dense white head leaving some lacework. Lovely aromatic and flowery hops. Medium body, some clean and sweet maltiness, again these amazingly flowery hops leaving a solid bitterness. Clean and very well made Pils. 130711

harrisoni (19310) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - MAR 10, 2011
500ml bottle drunk at home thanks to Chriso who picked it up at Battersea BF. I’d had a sample of this at ACBF ’11 so I more or less knew what to expect. Very pale gold with a slight haze and lasting white head. Hoppy citrus lemon zesty aroma. Yes a tasty enough pilsner with only a slight hint of cardboard on the malts. Zesty hoppy finish is pleasant. Quite a fragrant finish. Not quite the finished article but getting there.

imdownthepub (15322) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 5, 2011
Bottled, 500ml from Favourite Beers, Cheltenham, Gloucs. Straw with a greenish tinge, white head. This could have redefined my view of Pilsener, sharp, bright, lovely lemony fruity hop notes above a crisp fresh malt. Really refreshing after a 10 mile hike anyway. Really very pleasant.
