Ungstrup (29465) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAR 24, 2008
Cask at The Barony, Edinburgh. A golden beer with a dense lazing white head. The aroma is sweet malty with notes of caramel, and so is the flavor, the body is light.

Cask. Slightly hazy golden colour, small creamy white head. Aroma is fruity, nectary, honeyish along with some bisquits and wooden notes as well. Flavour is quite much the same, ending in a rather big fruity and floral way.

Warning! Early amateur rating! Draft in Edinburgh. A refreshing easy drinking ale. Smooth and creamy with nice fruitiness and not much bitterness.

2011 Note - this isn’t worth drinking outside of Edinburgh. Always great in Edinburgh always cack outside (especially England). It just doesn’t travel IMO.

Hazy blond color. It has a nice aroma, some earthy hops. But simple flavor, just some caramel and bitterness. Pleasant but simple.

2005-02-09, Cask Conditioned, 7-4-7-4-15=37
Golden color. Delicate fruity and grassy hops in the aroma. Good body structure, some malt, sweetness, and very good hops (fruity). Very good!
