Ungstrup (29208) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - APR 3, 2004
A very sweet hoppy aroma with notes of grass. A great aroma. The color is amber and it has a beutiful head. The flavor is very hoppy - mostly bitter hops - on a sweet background - combined with notes of caramel, bread, and flowers. A quite nice beer.

maeib (8627) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - MAY 13, 2007
Cask conditioned - gravity dispense - Rugby BF. A copper coloured beer with a beige puddle of a head. The aroma is nicely hoppy, but there are hints of sulphur. The taste is suprisingly bitter and hoppy, espeially for its ABV. Good fruity flavours. A real pleasant suprise.
