Ungstrup (29694) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - NOV 22, 2006
[Cask at Charlie’s Bar, Copenhagen] A deep red beer with a bubbly light brown head. The aroma is sweet malty with strong notes of berries. The flavor is sweet malty with notes of toffee and berries, leading to a dry bitter end, where light notes of toffee still lingers around. But the body is thin.

Cask Conditioned at Charlie’s Pub, Copenhagen
Beautiful mahogany color; nice lace. Some aroma of malt and caramel. Medium structure, some malt flavor, some caramel, and a peculiar flavor of barley+milk drinks (orzoro) and light roasted malt. Not much hop aroma, the final has a very good toffee track.
