Ungstrup (34643) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - FEB 7, 2009
Bottled. A dark amber beer with a thin lazing head. The aroma is very sweet and malty with strong notes of caramel and hops. The flavor is very sweet with strong notes of hops, lending it notes of peaches, citrus, and elderflowers, on a strong caramel malty background, the alcohol evident tickling the tongue, leading to a dry, bitter, and hoppy finish. Thank yespr for sharing.

oh6gdx (25449) - Vasa, FINLAND - APR 28, 2009
Bottled (thanks to the craziest bartender ever!). Ambery golden colour with small white head. Aroma is fruity and flowery hops along with some slight alcohol and caramel malty notes. Flavour is quite much the same in a rather nice balance. Sharing a bottle on two is just about good for this, as it is indeed quite hard on ya.

Clear amber - brown beer. Softish palate, a little dry. Low carbonation. Bitter toffee and nuts. Some repressed fruity hop. Bitterish cinnamon and bubblegum. Finishes dry with a trace of banana. A lot going on here but not coming over as that well integrated. Alright though.
