Ungstrup (28448) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JAN 3, 2005
[At Jyske Øldage 2004, Kolding] A yellow beer with a fine head. The aroma is sweet with notes of caramel. The flavor is sweet malty and quite perfumated.

jfm (1724) - Holbæk, DENMARK - OCT 27, 2004
Golden color with a white head. The taste is sweet with a light yeasty almost soapy note. Finishes very light and slightly bitter.

Spiesy (2338) - Sydney, Greater London, AUSTRALIA - JUL 12, 2004
Bottled. Foggy pale yellow with a bubbly head. Banana/ethylene aroma. Banana and vanilla flavour, rather unremarkable and not that pleasant. A bit crude really.

chriso (7344) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 29, 2004
Gold colour. Some malty cereal in the aroma. Short of flavour. What there is, again, is malty, but dull. Although the malt is quite dry, there is precious little in the way of hop presence. Either those organic NZ hops (Hallertau?) don’t pack much punch or they’ve stinted on quantity. Bland, but inoffensive - not much va va voom here. Hardly "exciting" as claimed in the blurb. Mind you, it was very close to the best before date. 500ml bottle (not bottle conditioned) from beersofeurope.co.uk. BBE 30 June 2004.

SilkTork (5121) - Rochester, Kent, United Kingdom, Kent, ENGLAND - NOV 26, 2003
Bottle. Malt and hops in an alcoholic drink that quenches the thirst. What? You want flavour, character and something interesting as well? No chance.

rauchbier (3559) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - SEP 9, 2002
Bottle. Gold with good head and condition. Sweet malt in the nose, fruit and malt in the mouth but very little aftertaste.
