Ungstrup (29170) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - SEP 16, 2006
As Timmo, I had this as Freedom Organic Lager. An orange beer with a thin disappearing white head. The aroma is sweet and quite malty, but combined with light notes of hops. The flavor is sweet malty with light notes of caramel, leading to a slightly bitter end. The mouthfeel is a bit sticky. I miss some character in this beer, but there’s nothing wrong with it.

Bottle 33 cl. Hazy golden with a white head. Sweet grainy malt aroma. Medium body, sweet malts and some flowery hops with an edge of metal. The finish is dry with a little hops. A little skewed. 160110

TBone (12474) - Pori, FINLAND - JUL 29, 2006
Draught@brew pub as "Freedom organic lager". Pale yellow color, small white head. Served very cold and getting much out of nose is difficult; just faint sweetish malts. Crisp, mostly sweetish malty - not much hoppy. Quite similar to commercial bulk lagers - no big faults, but mostly tasteless.
