Ungstrup (29482) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - OCT 9, 2005
A hazy orange beer with a nice white head. The aroma is sweet spicy combined with notes of citrus as well hints of caramel. The flavor is very citrusy, malty, and spicy, but also with fruity notes of oranges, and with a lightly bitter end.

Papsoe (25085) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUL 31, 2006
(Bottle 50 cl) Slightly hazy amber with a small, neat, dense off-white head. Slightly fat hop aroma with the alcohol already showing here. Only medium-bodied, citrusy fresh notes - sort of vitamin-C style. Distinct, bitter finish and a rather dominant alcohol without the body to sustain it. 310706

Cask at GBBF. Clear gold beer. Light dry palate. Very low carbonation. Sweet malt reasonably well balanced with some light hop. Decent flavour but ultimately flat and thus a bit boring.

fiulijn (14978) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 18, 2008
Hazy golden color; big frothy head, persistent. Dubious aroma, with paper, wet soil, country fields and grass, glue; then grassy hops. Medium body strength, but quite dry mouthfeel; it has a dry toffee flavor that along with the strong bitterness creates the effect of liquorice, mainly at the end. Strongly hopped, but not impressive.
