Ungstrup (29992) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUN 23, 2009
Draft. An unclear golden beer with a lazing white head. The aroma is sweet malty with strong notes of citrus, as well as light notes of wheat and a light acidity. The flavor is sweet with strong notes of spices, and a good deal of lemon, on a medium malty back ground, leading to a lightly tart finish.

yngwie (14907) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 9, 2013
On tap at Firestone Walker Barrelworks. A lightly unclear orange to golden beer with a small, white head. Weak fruity aroma, pleasant, with some lemon and pale malts. The flavor is more interesting, but not much. Dry, with lemon some bitterness and pale malt notes. Lasting finish. Boring in a way, but sure refreshing and quenching. 130809
