Ungstrup (29146) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - AUG 17, 2006
An orange beer with a beige head. The aroma is sweet hoppy, but also with a light note of grass. The flavor is sweet with light notes of both caramel and grass, leading to a dry bitter end. Somewhat boring.

Pale golden beer with a hazy appearance. Thin white head. Aroma is of honey with a decent spicy hop character as well. A bit of juicy fruitiness in there as well. Very fresh smelling. Flavour is well-balanced, sweet caramel malt. Finishes hoppy and spicy. Easy to drink. A good summer seasonal.

DuffMan (6534) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 4, 2005
I liked this. Pours clear gold (duh), with a decent head. Really nice sweet fruit on the nose (like peaches in syrup), delicious palate of fruity hops that finishes fairly crisply. On the lighter side, but I think that is why I like this one-- good flavours and balance that allow for repeated drinkability.
