Ungstrup (34694) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUN 22, 2010
Botttled. An amber beer with a beige head. The aroma has notes of malt, caramel, and cardboard. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt, caramel, cardboard, and straw. Thanks KimJohansen for sharing.

oh6gdx (25472) - Vasa, FINLAND - DEC 29, 2006
Bottled (thanks Bov!). Golden/copper mixed colour with huge fluffy white head. Aroma is herbs, cooked vegetables and slight fruits. Flavour is strong grassy hops with a finish of herbs. Very bitter, not a pilsener or IPA, but as Bov says, very hard to categorize. I would say bitter or vienna...

Beautiful amber color, nice perlage. It has a quite good malt aroma, with some cereals. The cereals are more evident in the flavor; there is some malt and caramel too; it has a round mouthfeel. The bitterness is correct. A well executed English Ale, when other British brewery can’t bottle an equally good product.

TBone (16197) - Pori, FINLAND - DEC 29, 2006
Bottled (BB 11/2006)
Dark amber color, huge cloudy brownish head, lace. Slightly herbal, grassy nose. Light to medium-bodied. Graperuit bitterness is mixed with fruity and yeasty notes. Hops raise nicely in the aftertaste. This is a pilsener here in RB, but I would say that this is more like an ale, bitter maybe.

MiP (15304) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - JAN 14, 2008
Bottle, 5.2%. Nice yeasty aroma. Hazy grey orange colour. Slightly fruity aroma. The flavour is naturtrüby, yeasty. Not much to say about it, but süffig.

Bov (12007) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - SEP 27, 2006
UPDATED: FEB 1, 2007 recipe by the contract brewer "Augenbrauerei" in Biel/Bienne - pours a hazy amber colour under a solid, persistant foam; a robust herbal hoppiness with some light fruity tones underneath (cherry, grape); a medium malt backbone, a solid bitterness takes the power and persists very long, lasting for a long time after you are finished with your beer; more strong herbal notes are met in the aftertaste - a nice beer which is hard to categorize (a sort of crossover between a pils and an IPA)
