Deep amber in color with a fruity aroma which brings a complex mix of malts and mainly English hops including Fuggles and Northdown. With a hint of barley wine, it is ideal to accompany food.

Ungstrup (29172) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - APR 3, 2004
The aroma is of hops, grass, and oil. THe color is amber and it has a small head. The flavor is not pleasant; it is sour bitter from a weird hop combination. The end is very dry. Not a beer for me.

UPDATED: DEC 10, 2009 2009-09-25, bottle, courtesy of a hardcore Danish crew, 4-3-6-2-10=25
Golden color. Stale paper aroma, a bit puckery. Some caramel flavor; but it’s really just too simple beer.

2006-10-24, 6-3-7-4-14=34
Light amber color. Aroma of malt and cardboard. Good body structure, based on the pale malt with some caramel, some residual sweetness, balanced bitterness, hop of fairly good quality. Quite good.
