Ungstrup (29081) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - APR 3, 2006
An almost opaque brown beer with a nice brown head, leaving a slight laze on the glass. The aroma is sweet nutty and malty, but also with slight notes of yeast and caramel. The flavor is quite sweet with notes of wood, nuts, nutmeg, caramel, and yeast. The end is dry with a slight hint of citrus from the hops. I find the mouthfeel a bit thin.

(Bottle 33 cl) Originally Kerkom produced only two beers: Bink Bruin and Bink Blond. They were both simply called "Bink", shared the same label and you could only tell the difference from the different coloured caps. I believe that explains the rating from "jbrus" of a beer simply called "Bink". I believe it’s the Bink Bruin. Nowadays Kerkom is a bit more sophistiticated in the way they present their beers. Anyways, this is dark brown, very unclear - almost muddy. Some maltiness and slightly roasted notes. A touch of sweetness. Not exactly a great beer but pleasant and easy to drink due to the low alcohol. 100198

Bottled. Ruby red colour, small beige head. Sweet caramel, plum and malt in aroma. Plum, dryness, paper and malt in flavour. Not as sweet as many other bruins, nice one in that way. A bit boring in length though.

Cloudy brown beer. Lots of malty tones like a Scotch Ale but also with a little sourness and a semi dry finish. Quite drinkable.

Draught at Akkurat, Stockholm
Beautiful mahogany color; creamy head. The aroma is a good mix of malt, caramel, woody sourness and light fruitness. Good body structure, with a very good mix of flavors: sweet malt, caramel, some toffee, very light fruitness to make it more dynamic, and correct bitterness. Very good.
