Bottle, BBE june 2007. Bought at Kolding Vinhandel. Pours a slightly hazy deep yellow with a small fizzy white head. Aroma has a background of caramel and quite a lot of fruity hoppyness (Cascade). Low carbonation, and slightly creamy. Flavour is not as sweet as expected, the hops have a more pronounced character. There are citric, peppery and fruity tones in the quite dry hoppy finish.

Bottle picked up at Wye Valley Garden centre, Bicester, 20-05-07. Poured gold with a white head. Taste was a bit fruity, some citrus, and edging towards bitterness at the end but on the whole only an ok beer.

Grovlam (4154) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAR 10, 2007
Bottle. Small fizzy white head that was mostly diminishing. Spare lacing. Clear body with a light amber color. Aroma was citrus, flowers, pine, grapefruit and fruit in general. Surprisingly thin palate compared to the initial sniff. Light bodied. Flavor was light and balanced between the bitter and the sweet. Slightly dry finish.

(Cask at Charles Dickens, Southwark, London, 26 Nov) Pale amber colour with small white head. Fruity nose with grapefruit, apricot and fresh earthy hops. Fruity taste with grapefruit, dried apricots and a nice hoppy bite in the finish. Nice and hoppy.

JensenTaster (1719) - DENMARK - MAR 1, 2006
(on bottle thanx MartinKubert)Diden´t know they made ales this weak. Clear, light yellow,white head. Itchy-bitchy pale malt aroma, no flavour to detect and a mild, nowait, no hopping in the finish.

Mads Langtved (2245) - Copenhagen K, DENMARK - MAR 1, 2006
Bottled. Horrible artificial smell. Grassy flavour. Some hops and bitterness in the finish. A pretty boring beer.

Ungstrup (29223) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - FEB 28, 2006
A golden beer with a nice off-white head. The aroma is rather hoppy, which also lends it notes of citrus. The flavor is boring; dry malty with a slightly dusty hoppy presence combined with hints of citrus.
