Ungstrup (28458) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JAN 6, 2008
Cask at GBBF 2007. A golden beer with no head. The aroma is sweet malty with light notes of hops, and so is the flavor, leading to a slightly bitter finish.

DonMagi (5596) - bantervile, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - APR 3, 2007
Man i couldnt find anything wrong but nothing was really right either. Aroma was minimal, touch of pale malts, floural hops. Taste similar bit of bitter finish, very drinkable but not much going on. This was a 3.6% vertion according to the judges board.
