Ungstrup (34350) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - OCT 21, 2009
Bottled. A golden beer with a thin off-white head. The aroma has notes of malt and grain. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt, straw, and a bit of citrus, leading to a lightly bitter finish.

Maria (10214) - Thisted, DENMARK - OCT 18, 2009
It’s golden with a white, creamy head and the aroma has notes of malt and fruit. The flavor has a light sweetness and notes of malt, citrus, grain and light straw before the dry finish. It’s quite refreshing and pleasant.

MesandSim (7117) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 12, 2008
A Mes rate: bottle at Chris_O’s "Who’s Afraid of the Big Bad Wolf / Hog Fest" tasting.
I have to be honest here, for some reason all I wrote down for this one was "3.1 - nice enough helles". I never do that, especially the lack of the score breakdown. Anyway... there’s my rate...

thewolf (12080) - Kolding, DENMARK - OCT 2, 2008
Bottle @ Chris_o’s Pre-Beer Exposed Tasting, September 2008.
Pours pale golden with a good, creamy, white head. Aroma is quite grainy with some brewing cereal. Low carbonation, okay mouthfeel. Flavour is very dull, rather sweet and malty. Weak.

ogivlado (7215) - Zagreb, CROATIA - SEP 9, 2008
Bottled(500ml). -as Irlbacher Premium Vollbier Hell
Pale yellow coloured, medium sized white head, dry nutty nose, low carbonation. Malty, bitterish herbal hoppy and light salty with nutty notes. Bitter light peppery finish. Remindes me on organic beer.

Marko (4948) - Split / Zagreb, CROATIA - SEP 8, 2008
Bottle ogivlado got in Germany en route to Plzen
Poured a pale golden-yellow body with a medium sized white head that took its time to go away. Quite nutty honeyish sweet yet dry nose. The taste is different. Light, bitter lemony hops followed by a honeyish malty end. Dry. Ok enough but it didn’t impress me.
