Ungstrup (28448) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - FEB 15, 2007
Bottled. An unclear dark amber beer with a huge orange head. The aroma is oddly metallic combined with notes of chestnuts, and lighter notes of acidic lemon and dusty hops. The flavor is sweet malty with light notes of caramel, but stronger notes of acidic lemon and oranges, as well as quite strong notes of chestnuts. I ’m not that fond of chestnut beers.

Papsoe (25094) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - FEB 18, 2007
(Bottle 75 cl) Very unclear amber golden with a tall, dense off-white head. Extremely lively - it keeps on coming even after most of the bottle has been emptied! Sourish, fruity aroma. Medium body, sweetish malty with fruit and caramel. Very unclean with this underlying tartness throughout. 150207

MiP (13046) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - SEP 2, 2008
Bottle, 4.2%. Slow gusher. Yeasty and tart aroma. Hazy amber colour. The flavour is quite sweet with some tartness. As usual, I am not sure it is intended, but it tastes all right. High carbonation.
