Ungstrup (29019) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUN 29, 2006
A hazy orange beer with a thin off-white head. The aroma is sweet with a somewhat sharp hop note. The flavor is very light with hints of malt, and a somewhat stronger note of hops. A boring beer, can only be used for refreshment, even on a humid Danish summer day.

Bottled. Amber colour with a small white head, that leaves slight lace. Aroma is caramel malts, some floral and wooden hoppyness along with mild herbal notes. Flavour is sweet maltyness, caramel, crystal and some mild biscuity notes along with some floral, grassy and mild fruity hops as well. Smooth and easy to drink.

omhper (19187) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - MAR 24, 2003
Bottled. Amber coloured with rich, firm creamy head. Light pine needle aroma. Light bodied and rather sweet with just a light touch of resiny hop flavour. The maltiness is clean and hard, and the finish only provides a short sting of bitterness.

yngwie (13106) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 29, 2013
Bottle, 12cl. A lightly hazy dark golden beer with a dense, finger-thick off-white head leaving lacings. The aroma has some spent grains and pears, a generic fruityness and some caramel. Hints of bread dough too. It’s quite carbonated, thin to medium bodied and semi-dry. Caramel, bread dough, grains and a little fruityness in the flavor, very low on bitterness, but at least some shows up towards the end. Not a very pleasant beer, but after a few sips I sort of got used to it. Wouldn’t want to drink much of it though. 130829

argo0 (11317) - Washington DC, USA - MAR 19, 2003
Clear amber body with quickly dissipating white head that leaves no trace as the beer works its way down the glass. Aroma is caramel. Taste is pretty bland -- no make that without taste -- for the most part, before finishing with a pleasant medium caramel maltiness that hints at, though never quite reaches, roastiness.
