Ungstrup (34263) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - AUG 19, 2004
A light yellow beer with a small white head. The aroma is very grassy and sweet with notes of glue. The flavor is sweet malty with notes of glue and citrus before a dry hoppy end sets in.

Bottle Citric and slightly grassy, but otherwise neutral nose. Pale straw coloring, no head. Citrus flavors, generally low bitterness. Watery and boring.

madsberg (11360) - Søborg, DENMARK - JUL 29, 2004
Bottled: Golden coloured. Ligth unclear. Has a small white head. Is malty and fruity in the aroma. Some vague spicy notes. Fruit and malt is dominant in the flavour as well. A little bland. Is more sweet than bitter in the end. Very light to drink, but quite boring. Theres much better examples of the style out there.

chriso (7513) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 17, 2004
Pale orange/ginger colour. A predominantly hoppy, citric beer. Grapefruit aroma. Lemon and grapefruit flavours. Crisp, clean finish - not too sharp. A touch of pale, dry malt appears towards the end. A bit one-dimensional, but an excellent quaffing beer. Tastes a bit like a pilsner. 500ml bottle (bottle conditioned) from Beer Seller, Lincoln. No BBE date.

Cloudy yellow hue with a white thin head. Orange and yeasty nose. Quite highly hopped taste with an under lying yeast taste.

larsniclas (6661) - Billdal, SWEDEN - SEP 29, 2003
Sampled at Stockholm Beer Festival 2003. Light and somewhat hazy. Not much of an aroma. Rather lively at first, then smooth. It tastes "old", museum-ish, like old logs(?).

sharp hoppy aroma, pale golden hue with minimal head, highly hopped with a crisp refreshing palate, low carbonation, not complex but still pretty good
