Ungstrup (30449) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - AUG 12, 2003
It has a sweet malty creamy aroma with notes of oranges and a little sourness. The color is orange and it has a fine foamy head. The flavor is a creamy malty one, with a note of oranges, in the end it turns a little bitter. A very drinkable and refreshing beer - but not bitter enough for a bitter.

yngwie (15381) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - DEC 12, 2010
Can. A clear, golden beer with a white head. Toffee and some fruityness in the aroma. Boring, and that goes for the flavor too, which is much the same. Lacks on most things, bitterness included. Thin on the palate. Boring, and a mock to dub it Bitter. 100814

harrisoni (15066) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - AUG 15, 2005
Nitro at Man of Kent, Ashford. Forced to have this as there was nothing else and I wanted to watch the football. A pale imitation of what it was when I first had it 15 years ago. Some creaminess and some hop on the finish, but basically this was pants
