Ungstrup (29665) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - DEC 10, 2002
An amber beer with a little head. It has a slightly sour aroma. The flavor is soft of a good malt blend and slightly prickling- I cannot taste the wheat which it should be brewed on. A very good beer - I definatly want to try this again.

omhper (19805) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - DEC 7, 2002
Sampled draught at Schiphol Aiport, Netherlands.
Chestnut brown, very little head. Mindboggingly sweet with syrupy mouthfeel and mellow body. Sugary finish.

skortila (4602) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - OCT 15, 2002
Brr aroma is maltand quite alcoholic. looks are much like every bock. Taste is downright not good, starts quite nice malted but becomes more and more chemical with a quitealcoholic palate.

bierkoning (10499) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - OCT 1, 2002
"Vintage" 2002. Malty aroma, mango. Sweet taste with caramel, mango and a hint of sourness and licorice. Drinkable but a bit boring.
