MartinT (7779) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 16, 2014
My Bottom Line:
Citrusy hops and their spicy, wooden bitterness evolve in a lean body tainted with mild diacetyl.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A sheet of foam covers the misty blond.
-The hop bitterness is quite salient, almost reducing drinkability.
-Mouthfeel is however geared towards drinkability.
-Malts contribute but a few sugars.

Bottle.

OleR (4799) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUN 7, 2014
Unclear gold colored body, with a small blond lace on top. Mild aroma of doughy, lightly toasted malts. A whiff of yellow fruits and earthy hops. Light to medium full. Taste is not entirely fresh. A light sourish-sweet malt base with some stale bittering hops. Some fruity bitterness in a short ending. [Draft at Pingvinen, Bergen. 05.09.13]

Ungstrup (29208) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAY 8, 2014
Bottled. A hazy golden beer with a lazing beige head. The aroma has notes of spices, peaches, and straw. The flavor is sweet with notes of dusty hops, and over ripe fruits, leading to a dry finish.
