50 cL bottle. Pours golden, clear and deep amber/brown with a lacing off-white head. Dry breadish malt aroma. Flavour is dry malt breadish, slight dusty and followed by a light fruity acidic hops flavour. Goes into a mild bitterness and light acidic/citric touch.

Ungstrup (31473) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - NOV 5, 2003
The aroma is sweet malty with caramel notes. The color is dark amber and it has a beutiful beige head. The flaver is sweet malty with loads of caramel malt and notes of straws. A really nice version of a Scotch 80/- I could drink a lot of these.

Papsoe (25069) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAY 16, 2005
UPDATED: JUL 3, 2005 (Bottle 50 cl) Light brown, clear ale with a pretty high carbonation and rather absent head. Extremely soft - in spite of the high CO2 - soft water? Pronounced malt-character and a touch of nuts. Has a somewhat odd tart edge. 220604

Bottlerd. Rubyish amber colour, small white head. Aroma is hops, some caramel and slightly salted notes. Flavour is slight roast, some fruits and a bit of grass. Very dry palate. Still a pleasant beer in most ways.

yngwie (15760) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAR 17, 2008
Bottle. Pours a sparkling, copper body with a decent, off-white head leaving nice lacings. The aroma has a pleasant fruityness, but there’s enough caramel and bready maltyness to make it really balanced. Unfortunately it’s a bit dull too, and there’s a hint of cooked vegetables. The flavor is much the same, with the fruityness lingering and also bringing along some bitterness, but far from as much as wished for, and my demands aren’t sky-high. Medium body. The finish is rather short, with malty flavors dominating, but there’s also a little fruityness and bitterness. The beer is easy to drink and quite tasteful, but it’s still rather boring. One of those beer I don’t know if I like or not. (080317)
