Ungstrup's rating

Ungstrup (29017) - Citizen of the universe, - APR 4, 2010
Draft. A hazy golden beer with a lazing beige head. The aroma has notes of malt and straw, as well as lighter notes of yeast and sulphur. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt and straw as well as lighter notes of yeast and sulphur, leading to a bitter finish where the notes of straw and sulphur lingers.

Bamsen78 (2885) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - FEB 15, 2014
Draught @ the brewpub. Pours cloudy yellow with stable white head. Clear aroma of yeast, with notes of citrus and butter. Bitter, hoppy flavour, with pronounced estery notes, touches of malt and hints of butter. Bitter, rough aftertaste with notes of yeast. Drinkable but nothing really special.

BlackHaddock (3479) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - FEB 9, 2014
On tap at the brewpub. Came a cloudy, golden orange with a full, foaming white head, it hung around a while. Aroma is lightly toasted bread with butter and sugar sprinkled on it, add just a thin floral and fruity confiture and you’ve got the smell. Flavour is also semi-sweet and toasty, the hop content giving some mild bitterness. OK more than fantastic, low carbonation for a Helles, but it suited the brew. Pleased we made the effort to find the brewpub.

lusikka (5927) - Tampere, FINLAND - AUG 14, 2013
Draught @ the brewpub, Potsdam. Pours a cloudy bright golden colour with a white head. Aroma of grass, sweet honey and bread. Flavour of sweet grainy malts, honey, yeast and herbal notes. Light bodied, good drinkability. Clearly the style is wrong, as this is a helles.

tiong (3610) - Espoo, FINLAND - AUG 14, 2013
Draught @ Brewpub

Pours hazy yellow with a smooth head. Aroma of sweet bready malts, hints of earthy notes and grass. Taste is earthy, grassy and malty with hints of bready notes. Finish is sweetish, grassy and slightly malty. Okay.

Pawola22 (3262) - Woodridge, Illinois, USA - MAY 9, 2013
On tap at the brewpub. Pours a very cloudy, golden orange colored body with an inch thick, foamy and frothy, white head that dissipates slowly and leaves a moderate lacing. Aroma is lightly sweetened pils malts with some bread, a light grassiness, a few fruit notes, and just a touch of DMS. Flavor is similar. Lightly sweetened and bready pils malts with a balanced, light grassy hopping. A few fruit notes and maybe a touch of sulfur on the flavor before this finishes smooth and clean while drying with a light bitterness. Medium length aftertaste and a soft, lighter carbonation. Overall, a decent Helles. A bit on the flat side when it comes to carbonation, but I thought it worked pretty well with the soft, somewhat sweet maltiness. Balanced and easy drinking enough.

rgf001 (108) - München, GERMANY - JUN 16, 2012
On tap at brewery in half liter mug. Hazy light orange color with one finger head. Faint Hallertau soapy smell. Slightly bitter and simple flavor. Dry finish. Very drinkable.

EithCubes (4699) - New Jersey, USA - MAY 24, 2012
Tap at the pub, hazy golden with a soapy white head. Lightly grassy and probably too bitter for a Helles, has a grainy vein running right through it and really has an amateurish homemade quality to it. Crisp, fullish body, and drinkable.

jerohen (1975) - Bussum, NETHERLANDS - MAY 21, 2012
On draft at the brewpub. Hazy golden colored, thick white head. Hoppy nose, bit flowery, hay, malts. Pleasant bitter flavor, thirst quenching. Not very complex, but very easy to drink (no wonder they serve it in half liter mugs). Extra points for drinkability, an underrated quality on Ratebeer imho.

Christian (11021) - Odense, DENMARK - DEC 26, 2011
On tap at the site in October. Cloudy orange with a small white head. Malty aroma with a touch of caramel, and some grassy hops. Malty flavour with grassy and herbal hops, and a nice bitter finish

culchiem (2403) - Berlin, GERMANY - JUN 19, 2011
Draught. Hazy yellow with a short lasting head. Peculiar beer this. Aroma is eggy. Flavour is yeast, some lemon and quite a sour bitter finish. Palate is long and dry
