Ungstrup (33993) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUL 15, 2009
Bottled. An amber beer with an orangey head. The aroma has notes of caramel and apricots - not for me. The flavor is sweet with notes of caramel and apricots as well as a bit of hops, leading to a dry, slighlty acidic, and bitter finish.

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAY 4, 2006
(Bottle 35,5 cl) Pours a clear, dark amber with a small head. Fruity, hoppy nose. Rather full body, lightly sweet with some caramel and an underlying, pleasant fruitiness. But still a dry, hoppy finish. Thanks to Degarth for sharing this. 030406

Bottled (thanks Degarth!). Deep golden colour, small white head. Aroma is Cascade and some other hops, some caramel, apricots and a bit sugary hints also. Flavour is grassy, quite sweet hoppy along with caramel and some sugary hints (from apricots?)

omhper (22991) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - MAY 6, 2004
Bottled. Brownish amber, small head. Fruity, citric hop aroma. Sweet with a light touch of apricot and jam. Hard, clean, simplistic malt profile. Lingering bitter finish. Complex interplay between fruit and hops, but all this is beautful paint on a plain malt foundation.

5th May 2008. A clear mid amber beer with a distinct apricot tone, only a little hoppyness. Dry finish. Refreshing.

Draft. Variegated amber color, thick tan head, solid lacing. Aroma og grass, flowers, summer fruit. Apricot comes through in the taste, very nice balance so its not sweet. Tasty stuff and easy drinking.
