maeib (8749) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - OCT 1, 2013
Keg Friends Of Ham Leeds 25/09/13. A hazy gold to tan coloured beer with a white head and lace. A very bitter beer. Lots of hops and tons of flavour. A good depth of flavour especially for its ABV. Peppery spiciness ini the nose. Great flavours but you have to like your beers to be bitter for sure.

Ungstrup (34660) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - AUG 12, 2013
Draft. A hazy amber beer with a lazing white head. The aroma has notes of peaches, perfume, hops, and alpha acids. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt, peaches, hops, and lemons, leading to a very fry finish. Raw finish.

thewolf (12136) - Kolding, DENMARK - AUG 12, 2013
Tap @ Mikkeller and Friends, Cph. Pours murky orange - yellow with a medium, staying, creamy, white head. Aroma has light doughy malts, kinda toasted, grapefruit, light lemon. Medium carbonation, fine dry and quite creamy mouthfeel. Flavour has caramel maltiness, very firm bitterness, very resiny - almost oily with notes of old washcloth, piney, oranges, lots of bergamot. Very bitter finish. Not exactly a balanced beer, but quite fresh and drinkable nonetheless.

Pigg humle med citrusdrag. Kul, lite udda smak. Johan kunde inte hålla sig från att beställa. Har bra tempo nu och vill inte tappa momentum. Ganska läskande
