A premium pale ale with distinctive fruity taste. The beer is light in colour, and has a refreshing clean flavour, which belies its strength.

fonefan (38081) - VestJylland, DENMARK - AUG 13, 2006
Bottle. Pale amber/copper coloured with a large white head. Aroma has yeast, malt, fruit and hops. Flavour is better than the aroma led to expect; a bit of yeast, fruity, malty with some nice hoppy bitterness in the finish.

Ungstrup (29992) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - OCT 4, 2003
The aroma is sweet and malty with notes of straws and fruit. The color is amber, but it has no head. The flavor is sweet malty with notes of grains and straws. An OK beer, but nothing special.

yngwie (14919) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - DEC 27, 2013
Bottle. A medium sized off-white head sits on top of a clear, golden body. The aroma is quite hayish (sic!), with pale malts and some fruityness. Not very exciting I say. The same goes for the flavor, but at least there’s some bitterness to raise my interest. Medium to full body with a pleasant carbonation level. Overall, an easy drinkable beer without any flaws, but it’s utterly boring. Definitely not an all-nighter. 130508
