Ungstrup (29224) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - NOV 20, 2005
A hazy red-orange beer with a huge light brown head. The aroma is sweet with notes of caramel and dust. The flavor is sweet with strong notes of toffee, but also some fruity notes of oranges and a nutty dry finish.

Papsoe (25088) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - NOV 23, 2005
(Bottle 50 cl) Very pretty, clear amber with a dense, lasting head. Lovely fresh floral aroma. Rather light with some nutty notes. Not overly bitter - the hops add mostly aroma. Very classical bitter. 060601

omhper (19327) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - AUG 5, 2005
Bottled. Hazy dark amer, firm, rocky head. The aroma is all about butterscotch. Really sweet and caramelly with that lovely Hook Norton malt character hidden in an abundance of sugar & toffee. Some grassy bitterness that tries to cope with the butterscotch. As a big fan of this brewer I’m disappointed, but still it’s a decent brew.

Bottle. Golden, small head. Has a fruity aroma, and fruit is there in the flavor as well. Sweetish and a little dry.
