Ungstrup (28462) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JAN 20, 2008
Bottled. an amber beer with a lazing thin beige head. The aroma is sweet malty with primary notes of caramel, and so is the flavor, though added a light note of metal, leading to a dry bitter and slightly metallic finish. Thanks to Emil for bringing this home from Iceland.

Papsoe (25094) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JAN 14, 2008
(Bottle 33 cl) Courtesy of Ungstrup. Clear, amber golden with a creamy, off-white head that leaves some lacework. Lightly sweet aroma of caramel. Medium body, lightly sweet caramel and a fairly discreet bitterness. Quaffable but far from exciting. 120108

oh6gdx (20003) - Vasa, FINLAND - MAR 3, 2009
Bottled (thanks to Thomas B for bringing this beauty home from Iceland!). Deep ambery brown colour with small beige head. Aroma is roasted malts, some hops with mild toffee, burnt wood and smoky notes. Also quite nutty notes towards the finish. Way more complex than I waited it to be. Well done!

omhper (18972) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - AUG 31, 2007
Bottled at RBESG ’07, thanks Kalli! Clear amber colour. Refreshingly dry with lovely firm, nutty malt. Near all flavours derives from roasty malt. There’s butter and wood. The mouthfeel is light but firm and the finish carefully salty. By far and away the best Icelandic beer I’ve ever had!

fiulijn (13532) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 5, 2008
Bottle at Rover, Göteborg; great generosity of Pelle
Dark amber color; creamy head. Light aroma of cereals, carmel and very light Saaz. Medium body strength, with a strong caramel flavor and some dark chocolate; it has a good bitterness level, but the caramelized malts cover the hop. The end is dry, as it seems to be quite common for this brewery. Not bad.

Oakes (11874) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 1, 2014
Dark brown and unfiltered. Relatively faint caramel nose. Smooth dark malts - light toffee, hint if roast. Good clean if simple dark lager.

thewolf (10792) - Kolding, DENMARK - AUG 30, 2009
Bottle. [thanks to the parents and my bigbro]
Pours deep red-brown with a fine, staying, frothy, off-white head. Aroma is sweet, lots of toasted caramel, lightly roasted, some metallic notes (quite charcoal-like). Medium carbonation, a tad on the thin side. Flavour is rather sugary sweet. Light toasted, some roasted notes and a fair, grainy, earthy bitterness in the finish. Okay.
