On cask at the Black Bull. Appearance - golden with a proportionate head. Nose - delicate malt with oranges. Taste - more pronounced oranges against a sweet malt backdrop. Palate - light to medium bodied with a creamy texture and a long dry finish. Overall - not exciting by modern standards but very balanced and drinkable.

Draft to taster at Ei8ht Ball. Looks solid; a very slightly hazy gold with white lacing. Smells of grain and hops with some mild bittersweetness. Tastes like it smells with what seems like a touch of ginger, which makes it pleasant on the palate. A interesting bitter.

Ungstrup (29224) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUN 18, 2014
Cask. An orange beer with a small disappearing head. The aroma is slight but with sweet notes. The flavor is lovely bitter with some flowery and spicy notes. It is brewed on an OK malt and has an OK bitternes, that lingers.

arminjewell (6158) - Farmington Hills, Michigan, USA - NOV 4, 2013
Pour on tap at Churchkey DC, hazy reddish orange pour with thin white head, aroma was big creamy biscuit, bread, nice grassy, spicy and yeasty notes, nice and subtle vanilla and honey notes as well. Taste is a mix of sweet and soft cracker, biscuit, some acidic malts as well into a touch of grass, spice and hints of white fruit, finishing fairly bitter, slightly sweet. Well done.
