nick76 (4180) - Tampa, Florida, USA - JUN 19, 2007
The aroma has malt, syrup, and some yeast but itís light. The appearance is golden with some haze and particles and a small head. The flavor is light and grainy with a touch of sour mash and Alka-Seltzer. The palate is thin. Overall itís not good but maybe itís old.

Storm (2684) - Amager, DENMARK - MAY 2, 2007
Bottle. Cloudy yellow colour with a white head. Very much aroma of caramel, malt and toffee-like. Flavour of malt, caramel and very little of hops not so clean taste but very refreshing and very easy to drink.

Papsoe (25089) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - APR 19, 2007
(Bottle 33 cl) Courtesy of tbone_. Pours a slightly hazy, golden with a dense, white head. Sourish, malty aroma. Medium in body with fairly sweet malts and then some fruity or floral accents. Has a vague, underlying tartness, but absolutely no bitterness. 090407

Ungstrup (29171) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - APR 10, 2007
Bottled. A hazy golden beer with a thin beige head. The aroma is sweet with notes of butter and straw - and the flavor is somewhat malty with notes of butter and straw. Not in top condition.

thegreenrooster (3175) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - JUN 17, 2006
Pour is a nice hazy looking orange with a small white head. Aroma is musty and citrus. Flavor is a bit thin and papery. There are some lemon notes and some hops but they are barley noticable. Boring.

RooftopRogue (423) - Champaign, Illinois, USA - JAN 28, 2006
An aroma consisting of barley and citrus. Maize colored with very little head and lacing. A taste consisting of wheat marked with citrus.

oh6gdx (20253) - Vasa, FINLAND - JAN 9, 2006
Bottled. A bit hazy, pale yellowish golden colour, small white creamy head. Sourish sweet aroma (almost barnyardish) with some citrus in background. Biting carbonation, otherwise papery and thin palate. Fruits in flavour with hints of some hoppiness in finish. Quite interesting beer, but at the same time boring.

TBone (12476) - Pori, FINLAND - DEC 31, 2005
Bottled (BB 09/2006)
Hazy pale golden color, small white head. Sour, sweety bun aroma, like in unclean tap, some citrus and malts in the background. Carbonated mouthfeel, quite thin body. Lemon, orange, faint yeast and honey notes. Plain but somehow interesting organic beer.

AceOfHearts (1375) - Mountain View, California, USA - NOV 20, 2005
Bottle. Handsome looking calm, hazy golden with an eggshell head. Floral, orange rind, hints of lemon, and...auuugh, phenolic. Itís all downhill from here. Expiration date on the bottle says June 06, so no pity. I want my 800 Yen back.

Cletus (6354) - Connecticut, USA - AUG 26, 2005
Bottled. My label looks nothing like the one pictured, but the description, name and brewer are similar so this must be the right one. Pours coppery with no real head and only a faint hint of white lacing to give an idea as to what the head may be if it were prominent. Smells of apples, grapefruit and pepper. Tastes of apple juice, grapefruit, some slight nutmeggy notes, but otherwise very watery and bland. Disappointing.
