Ungstrup (34313) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - SEP 2, 2009
Bottled. A golden beer with a lazing white head. The aroma has notes of citrus, elderflowers, hops, and peaches. The flavor is sweet malty with strong notes of fruit as well as notes of elderberries, peaches, and hops, leading to a dry bitter finish. The body is light. Thanks fonefan for sharing.

oh6gdx (25327) - Vasa, FINLAND - MAR 8, 2009
Bottled@Monks Cafe, Wallingatan, Stockholm. Hazy deep orange colour with some particles floating around. Huge creamy slightly off-white head. Aroma is earth, fruity yeast, some fruity and flowery hops as well as mild honey. Flavour is spices, fruity hops, quite wooden and nectary hints as well. Rather easy, but still complex golden/blond ale.

Cloudy gold beer. Little white head. A little sherbet orange on the nose. Semi crisp and semi dry palate. Dry even malt and sharp tangy orange hops. Minerals. The malt turns creamier. Finishes soft and dry with mild bitter aftertaste. Pretty decent, a bit sharper and more flavoursome than a run of the mill Golden.

Bottle, kindly shared by fonefan. It pours an unclear, next-to golden body with a decent off-white head leaving lacings. Citrus, mango, grapefruit, some pine and peach in the aroma. A bit weak, but quite pleasant. Pale malt, citrus, grapefruit and a touch of pine in the flavor, leading to a finish with citrus, peach and some bitterness. Medium body. There’s some vague hints of the beer not doing well from bottle conditioning, but they are not ruining the beer. Quite quaffable and quenching. (080822)

Bottle. Golden/amber with a small head. Aromas are sweet lemon, fresh cream and spicy hops. Flavours are refreshing sweet lemon followed by grapefruit bitterness towards the finish. Bitter and dry on the aftertaste. A simple but effective beer.

duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAR 30, 2006
Cask@The Sussex Beer Festival, Hove. I’m fond of the Fox brewery, and this was another solid one from them. Light, hoppy and aromatic, some soft peach and apricot flavours come through, very drinkable stuff.

Bottle. Hazy, golden-amber colour with a good deal of sentiment and a huge tan head. Nice hoppy nose emphasizing citrus fruit, peach and flowers. Good bitterness, peach and citrus complementing caramel. Dry finish. Quite fizzy. A good bitter.
