Ungstrup (28448) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - SEP 8, 2009
Bottled. An amber beer with a thin beige head. The aroma has notes of malt and caramel as well as light notes of butterscotch. The flavor is sweet and acidic with notes of malt and citrus, leading to a dry strawy finish. Thanks fonefan for sharing.

yespr (29687) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - DEC 30, 2008
50 cL bottle. Pours hazy orange with a huge off-white head. Mild citric and dry malty aroma. Seems to hold a minor infection. Light spiced touch. Light citric flavoured, a bit dry and vaguely smoked. Mild citric and bitter finish. Is infected although not overly much - could have been way worse. Why do the brits bottle this unpasteurised? I really dont get it - neither have they it seems.

yngwie (12721) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - SEP 30, 2008
Bottle, shared by fonefan. A clear, golden beer with an off-white head. Really weak aroma, and quite weak flavor. Both with citrusy, mostly orange, fruityness and a sweet maltyness. Bitterness from the hops in the finish. Medium mouthfeel. Sure not a bad beer, or beer gone bad, but überboring. (080823)

Botella. Slightly unclar golden. Aroma of malt with fruits. Good mouthfeel. Fruity and malty flavoour with a pleasant sweetness. Dry finish. Good but rather simple.

TFODRBSG08 Courtesy of Fonefan. It’s warm golden with a creamy head. The aroma has notes of fruit and light malt. The flavour has a light sweetness, notes of slightly dry citrus, malt, caramel and fruit. It’s easy to drink and it’s pretty charming.

Plovmand (6176) - Helsinge, DENMARK - AUG 27, 2008
Bottle at Ulfborg RB tasting. Thank you Brugmansia. It poured clear golden with a white medium head. Fruity and hoppy aroma. Flavour is malty with some fruits and hops. Bit too one-sided.
