Ungstrup (29989) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - OCT 28, 2007
Draft. A deep red beer with a thin beige head. The aroma is sweet malty with primary notes of caramel, but also light notes of nuts. The flavor is pretty much like the aroma with a dry finish.

brentfeesh (1208) - Mansfield, Ohio, USA - OCT 19, 2007
Draft at Falling Rock during GABF. Brown nut shell with a medium off white head. Brown roasty malt that is very stereotypic to the style but good. Lightly roasted flavor. Simple with very light malt sweetness. Nothing off and well balanced. Smooth mouth feel, medium body. Nothing fancy but well made and sessionable.

BeerandBlues2 (10387) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - JAN 8, 2007
Draught at brewery. Pours clear light brown with a small fizzy off-white head, mostly diminishing, spare lacing. Aroma is average malt (bread, caramel), light hops (flowers), average yeast (dough, earth) with notes of cola. Light bodied, thin texture, flat carbonation and a bitter finish. Short duration, light sweetness, acidity and bitterness.

harlequinn (2744) - Tacoma, Washington, USA - JUL 17, 2006
This was quite yummy, with a really strong chocolately malt ball flavor like you used to get in the movies. Rich and lightly roasted, with a medium bodied mouthfeel, and a tasty bit of nuttiness and toffee in the finish. Highly enjoyable

Crosling (1863) - Loveland, Colorado, USA - SEP 12, 2005
Draught. Wonderful roasted malt and chocolate aroma, with hints of fudge and fruits. Flavor is rich, malt accented, and a bit unorthodox for a Brown ale, considering it had significant roast and burnt malt flavors. Very rich in body as well. Bull & Bush has impressed me thusfar. I should visit the brewery soon.
