Ungstrup (29286) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - AUG 23, 2004
The aroma is light with notes of roasted malt and sweetness. The color is light brown and it has a small head. The flavor is dry with notes of caramel and malt.

Cobra (1100) - Banned City, - AUG 10, 2004
12 oz. brown, longneck bottle. No freshness date seen anywhere. Poured out a deep caramel color, bordering on brown. Thick, tan colored head lasted a good little while, but not to the bottom of the pint glass. It left a sticky lacing, though. Aromas are of sweet caramel / crystal malts, some dry biscuit notes, and subdued hops. Tastes are mostly of sweet caramel, some background maltiness, and hops make an all too brief appearance at the very end. A little too sweet for my liking, but a decent local brew all the same.

madsberg (10184) - Sřborg, DENMARK - AUG 5, 2004
Bottled: Dark amber coloured. Beige medium sized head. Malty and light fruity aroma. Some hints of caramel. Flavours of chocolate and hops. A bit thin bodied, but ends on a medium bitter note.

Oakes (12552) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 4, 2004
Golden brown colour. Hints of molasses, brown bread crust. Dry brown malt notes (though I doubt they use it in a dunkel). Rather thin, though. Toasty, minerally finish. Disappointing given my previous experiences with this brewery.

jimhilt (2403) - Bow, New Hampshire, USA - JUL 6, 2004
Pours with a two-finger white head that some lace. Clear amber color. Medium bodied but slightly watery finish and light carbonation. Slightly malty nose. Starts sweet finishes mellow and not dry. $1.65 for a 12oz. bottle from Colonial Spirits Acton, Ma.

DocLock (7860) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 25, 2004
Poured copper with medium white head. Decent aroma of malt, toffee, caramel, pronounced red wine. Tastes malty, with a caramelly, brown sugary, concord grapey finish. Fairly complex and smooth. Not bad at all. I’m looking forward to the other DeGroen’s styles.

jeffc666 (1984) - Fairfax, Virginia, USA - MAY 28, 2004
Copper body clear witha minmal tan head. Light caramel aroma, not much going on here. The flavor is also caramel but also rather timid. Medium chewy body. Just OK.

fly (1417) - austin, Tejas, Alabama, USA - MAY 3, 2004
Rather simplistic, but nice. Peeking at the brewer’s description I can’t say that I disagree. Being that I’ve had some disappointing ones in Germany, I will say that this is a fairly decent beer. Not great, but good and well made.

tiggmtl (4548) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 2, 2004
Grapes and caramel in the nose - very malty aroma. Deep, dark copper colour with fizzy off-white head that recedes to ring. Round maltiness and dark fruit with a very dry finish followed by a lasting sweet, dark, malty aftertaste. Not much hop flavour or bitterness. Body is light and a touch thin. Very clean. Good tasting beer. Could stand to have either heavier body or more carbonation. One or other would make this a more exciting beverage. Bottle.
