Ungstrup (29207) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JAN 25, 2004
An orange beer, slightly hazy, with a fine off-white head. It has a slight fruity aroma. The flavor is light; fruity, a little flowery, a little cask flat, and with a nice bitter end that lingers. The body is somewhat thin.

Cask@The George. Ambery golden colour with mediumsized beige head. Aroma is earth, flowery hops and also some slight citrusfruity sweet notes. Flavour is earth, bready malts, caramel and it gets quite graint notes in the finish.

Copper color. Nice grassy, earthy aroma. Smooth, salty, but maybe too simple body. The end is a bit watery.

MiP (13573) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - FEB 25, 2005
Cask. Dark golden colour. Slightly astringent, but suting the beer. Full-bodied for its ABV. Slightly sweet. Probably a very good session beer.
