12 fl oz bottle. Pours clear orange with a little white head. Light malty aroma, slight fruit note. Woody and caramel malt flavour, dry and almost woody. Bitter hoppy note towards the finish. Dry finish. I miss some sweetness, otherwise a nice brew.

Ungstrup (29084) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAR 18, 2005
A hazy amber beer with a disappearing white head. The aroma is sweet with primary notes of caramel, and so is the flavor.

Papsoe (25090) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAR 23, 2006
(Bottle 35,5 cl) Pours a clear, dark amber with a small, creamy, off-white head. Rather sweet aroma with distinct caramel. Medium body with loads of caramel and perhaps a touch of nuts. Very vague underlying tartness. Quite lovely and unusual - and by far the most interesting CC I’ve ever had (although it isn’t really saying much....) 230306

oh6gdx (20217) - Vasa, FINLAND - JUN 12, 2007
Bottled. Amber colour, mediumsized beige creamy head, leaves nice lace. Aroma is zest, caramel malt and some flowery hops. Flavour is grass, flowery hops, bigtime malts as well as some frutiy hints. Some nice earthy notes in the finish along with fruits and grass. Really pleasantly balanced brew. Refreshing in the warm summer.

omhper (19194) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - SEP 30, 2006
[Bottled at Stockholm Beer Festival] Clear reddish amber, near no head. Buttery malt aroma. Low hop rate, some butter and caramel, but the clean, hard mouthfeel doesn’t let much flavor out.

Warning! Early amateur rating! Brown lager. Crisp and refreshing. Good malt depth and a long malty dry finish. Good.

Hazy copper color. The aroma has some light hop. Sweetish mouthfeel, not much flavor, a bit candy-like. Ordinary. Very light fruitness.
