Ungstrup (29286) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUL 27, 2008
Bottled - tasted blind. A hazy amber beer with a thin beige head. The aroma is sweet malty combined with notes of caramel and hops, as well as light notes of spices. The flavor is sweet with notes of hops, caramel, and malt, leading to a dry straw finish. A very special thanks goes out to my mystery friend at the Hood River Hops Fest who gave me this.

Tasting at Chez Bruce. Thanks to Colin. Hazy deep amber beer, good bubbly pale tan head. Palate is airy and a little dry. Light fine carbonation. Sweetish light malt with a nice toffee streak. Spice. Touch of dried fruits but it’s mostly toffee and big beer spice. Light dry finish.

Dark brown color, hazy; medium-sized creamy head. Strong malt aroma, with vanilla oak, but also a delicate fruity touch. Full bodied, with a round mouthfeel; strong caramel and toffee flavor, well sweet, but not cloying; the vanilla/oak character is moderate, well complementing the malts; there is a light nutty touch; correct bitterness level, probably faded in 2 years of aging; instead the alcohol is clearly perceived, providing a warming feeling and a mean of cutting the malt. Very good.
