Doppelganger (1388) - Dry County, Arkansas, USA - DEC 15, 2006
Cask, Gardeners Arms, (Plantation Street), Oxford. Shiny dark copper, dense-as-can-be cap of tan foam, lingering and lacing tenatiously. A picture perfect pint. Soft farmy hops, a bit of clean malt. Pleasant aroma, though a little bit low volume. Silky soft palate. Farmy, resiny hops, coppery malt. A lovely winter seasonal. A wholesome, honest beer.

KnutAlbert (6386) - Oslo, NORWAY - DEC 6, 2006
Handpump, Hand and Flower, Kensington. Brown/reddish ale with small head. Full malt, but dominated by the hops - lemongrass, resin, which linger for a long time. Very refreshing, a great beer.

Ungstrup (30811) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - DEC 4, 2005
[Cask at Charlie’s Bar, Copenhagen] A deep red beer with a thin beige head. The aroma is sweet with notes of berries. The flavor is sweet with notes of berries, toffee, malt, and spices - especially cardamom comes thru. But the body is thin.
