Skunky aroma and no head. Beats most American bears easily though... minus the higher price tag.

Ungstrup (30256) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - OCT 6, 2002
A light yellow beer wiht no head. It has a faint aroma of malt. And a watery flavor that end in a slight bitterness. I much rather have a Tuborg - if it must be a lager.

Sweet, grassy aroma, pale yellow, small white head. Grassy flavour, slight bitterness. Sweet, light and fluffy, ordinary.

UPDATED: FEB 10, 2003 I'm a little ashamed to say that I like this beer. It isn't my favorite by a longshot, but a lot of places there isn't much variety and this is generally my favorite in such situations. It is easily drinkable en masse, and the taste is certainly decent. Usually overpriced, but much better than US megas if those are the only options. It does get skunky a lot in those damned green bottles, but I had it on tap recently and it was much better, so I tried the "keg" cans and it was in between: not as good as the draught but better than bottled, mainly because it wasn't skunky. Still, if you can get a micro you'll generally be better off.

Export brand - keg (5%). Paler than the cold filtered variety. Average keg product.

Where I come from, we call this "runemiege". I will not give the literal translation, but it has something to do with a horse and water leaving your body.

This stuff is skunky. I donít know while people think it is SUPPOSED to taste that way.
