Ungstrup (34362) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - FEB 6, 2003
[cask at Cockney pub in Århus] A brown almost black beer with a small light brown head. The aroma is very faint with hints of the malt, fruit and a bit smokey. The flavor is really good - a lot better than the aroma promises - it is soft and filled with malt and fruit notes. A very nice beer.

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - DEC 10, 2005
(Bottle 50 cl) Deep black, almost no head or carbonation. Although stronger than a typical Mild this is fairly light-bodied. Strongly roasted notes, yet mild and smooth with only a vague bitterness. Nice and very quaffable. 250302

6th August 2008. On tap at GBBF. Opaque brown beer. Smooth silky - slightly sour fruit. Not bitter. Lovely flavour profile and goes down a treat. Silky until the end.
