Ungstrup (32172) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAY 26, 2006
A pale orange beer with a thin white head. The aroma is of brewmash with a hint of oranges, and the flavor is sweet again with primary notes of brewmash, and a touch of citrus. Not that bad.

Papsoe (25068) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - FEB 27, 2007
(Bottle 33 cl) Clear, deep golden with a rough, off-white head. Discreet aroma of lightly sweet malt. Medium body, sweet, bready - almost caramelish - notes. Some nuts in there as well. And Scotch?? Subdued bitterness. I believe this has gotten a bit old, but it’s actually still quite drinkable. Reminds me of Newcastle Brown.... Courtesy of Bov. 270207

oh6gdx (23913) - Vasa, FINLAND - AUG 7, 2006
Bottled (Thanks omhper!). Golden colour, small white head. Aroma of maize and malts. flavour of malts, white bread and grassyness. Refreshing, but quite boring. Mouthdrying.

omhper (22306) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - FEB 10, 2006
Draught at various locations on Rarotonga. Clear golden colour, brief head. Grassy nose, sometimes with some strawberry jam added. Sweet with papery maltiness and pleasantly soft mouthfeel. Low to medium bitterness. While this brewers beers aren’t very adventurous at least they try to sell them with being made from good ingredients and being produced with extra care. A respectable tropical lager.

Warning! Early amateur rating! Bottle in Raratonga. Sweetish start followed by a pronounced marmaladey finish. Brandyish flavours inbetween. Unusual and drinkable.

TBone (14897) - Pori, FINLAND - JUL 30, 2006
Bottled as "Captain Cook’s Lager". Hazy golden color, small white head. Buttery, diacetylic nose. Grassy hoppy, butterscotch flavors and suprisingly light alcohol too. Very unclean product - similar to Royal Ikale from Tonga. But new country courtesy of omhper!

Oakes (14042) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 15, 2006
Pale straw colour. Lots of haylike hops in the aroma. Light, fizzy body. Sulphur, straw and haylike flavours with a hint of bitterness. Step above average macro, but that’s it.

madsberg (11166) - Sųborg, DENMARK - MAY 22, 2006
Bottled: Golden coloured. Clear. Dense off white head. Quite buttery and grassy aroma. Grainy and light grassy flavour. Mouthfeel is light dry. Thin and watery body. Is sweetish in the end. Thanks to Per and Jeppe for letting me in on this tasting.
