Ungstrup (29850) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JAN 17, 2003
UPDATED: SEP 25, 2005 Cask: a light amber beer with a very foamy head. But it doesn’t have much aroma. The flavor is slihgtly fruity combined with a slight bitterness. It’s a really good maltblend that goes into this beer. But the flavor is a little watery.

fiulijn (15310) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 25, 2002
UPDATED: FEB 6, 2008 2008-01-05, Cask conditioned at Cockney Pub, Århus, 6-4-6-3-12=31
Hazy amber color with a creamy head. Light malty and hoppy aroma. Round mouthfeel, with some residual sugars; it has some toffee flavor; also a very strong bitterness, a bit harsh and metallic, maybe too much. Drinkable, but not special.

2003-08-20, Cask Conditioned, 5-4-5-4-12=30
Amber color, nice head. Reasonable, but not impressive, with most of all a caramel character.

light amber with a bitter hoppyness, a perfectly drinkable pint but uninspired
