This beer is watery and lacks any real character, but that also means it’s taste has no real unpleasant aspects so it is drinkable. It’s also cheap, so it is not bad for its price.

Dull and foamy and all around boring. But at least it doesnt have the nasty taste that accompanies most mainstream beers

It smells sweet, strange. The taste is watery, bit foamy, sweet. Boring and almost tasteless.

Not a beer I recall as being significantly bitter oddly enough. Same colour as mainstream draught in New Zealand, same flavour. Colourful packaging and sponsorship of a rugby league team made this popular for a while. Iím not Iíve seen it for a while. Anyway, since when was 3.5% abv full strength beer?

Didnít realise 3.5% was considered to be "full strength". Sweet cardboard nose, and pours a dark amber. For the price this beer is better than a lot of others out there, but definitely a working mans beer.

Can. I recently rated Southern Draught (another NZ dark lager) and said that "among its peers, not bad". Well, this beer is one of its peers, and it actually makes me think I may have UNDER-RATED Southern Draught! There isnít any of the toastiness that made SD somewhat palatable. Instead there is a weak caramel and apple flavour, marred by a slightly stinky wet-dishragginess. This is truly poor by any standard.

Ungstrup (34703) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAY 10, 2009
Bottled. A dark golden beer with a lazing beige head. The aroma is sweet with notes of malt and caramel, while the flavor is sweet and mainly malty with a bitter finish. The body is thin. Thanks Papsoe for sharing.
