Ungstrup (29208) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - FEB 7, 2004
An amber beer with a fine beige head. The aroma is sweet malty with strong notes of caramel and fruit. The flavor is of roasted bread and caramel. It is very nicely hopped both aroma and bitter which gives it a lovely bitter end. A nice flavor.

Papsoe (25088) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAR 17, 2005
(Bottle 35,5 cl) Amber, slightly hazy with a nice, creamy head. The different hops make this an excessively bitter hebrew. Apart from the hoppiness I believe this is lacking in character.

harrisoni (13564) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - FEB 2, 2009
Bottle from Utobeer. Clear attractive amber colour. Lasting thin beige head. Certainly hoppy, but more peppery hoppy tongue stinging hoppy than PNW hoppy. Some ok nutty caramel malts. Some sweetness and richness. Carbonation makes it a bit metallic. Some fruit salad in there somewhere. Fine.
