Ungstrup (29661) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - APR 25, 2005
[Cask at Volunteers Arms, GBBF 2004] A hazy brown beer with a light brown head. The aroma is powerful dominated by yeast. The flavor is also powerful with strong notes of yeast, but also caramel and roasted malt, leading to a very bitter end.

leaparsons (8258) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - OCT 27, 2004
Melton Mowbray Fest 04. Copper and amber in colour. Aromas are berry fruit, spice and toffee. Flavours are fruity toffee malts with a really pretty dry, hoppy finish. Simple, but moreish.

Hildigöltur (5103) - København, DENMARK - MAR 2, 2004
[Cask conditioned] Quite boring. There seems to be some kind of unbalance between the sweetness and the bitterness.
