Ungstrup (30476) - Citizen of the universe, - JAN 11, 2006
A hazy orange beer with a thin beige head. The aroma is sweet with primary notes of caramel, but also light notes of fruit. The flavor is sweet malty combined with notes of straw. Ordinary.

Drinking from tab at The Windmill, Stansted airport. A malty aroma, roast, caramel, banana. The clear brown orange beer has a small white head. Taste is a bit watery, some caramel. Would expect more from a beer with this name. Low carbonated.

Cask, Hamilton Hall, JD Wetherspoons, 2nd May 2015. Wow that’s stellar service. Kind girl got me a half from upstairs as it was at the end of the barrel. White Lacing. Clean malt. Juicy hop bite. Solid bitter. Good fruity yeast esters. Good stuff.

The_Osprey (3241) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 5, 2015
Cask HP at Bree Louise as ’DBC Jurassic’. Cloudy dark orange / brown, still, decent dense foamy orange-tinted white head endures. Full, thick lacing. Aroma is pungent, burnt, sour plastecine, twiggy, burnt plastic. Body is medium, smooth, low carbonation. Taste is light malts, softly sour, more plastecine. A bit of a weird one overall.

maeib (8750) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - SEP 7, 2014
Bottled 23/08/14. An amber coloured beer with a white head. Sweet toffee dominates the nose too much. There is a bit of hoppiness to join the sweetness in the mouth so it is palateable but it still is too much for me. Malts give more than just body here.
