Ungstrup (30994) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - SEP 8, 2004
An orange beer with a white disappearing head. The aroma is slightly sour with notes of hops, straw, and grain. The flavor is slightly sweet with notes of hops. The mouthfeel is thin and very carbonated. A boring beer.

Papsoe (25072) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JAN 2, 2007
(Bottle 33 cl) A clear, golden beer with a small, white head. The aroma is clean malt with a touch of metal. Medium body with some malt and brewing cereal and some fairly decent hops for balance. A drinkable lager, but nothing much more. 020107

omhper (21776) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - FEB 1, 2003
Bottled. Golden coloured. Neutral aroma. Dryish and reasonably malty with medium body and low bitterness. Unexceptional, but well made.

Pre GBBF tasting at Chris and Ruth’s. Clear paleish gold beer, small white head. Palate is light and semi dry. Modest fine carbonation. Light pale malts. Some floralness. Very mild citrus. Light finish. Reasonably clean and certainly had many worse.

Travlr (17031) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - DEC 13, 2008
A light lager than really does not stand out from the crowd. Tastes decent enough on a hot Sri Lankan afternoon, after climbing, and climbing, and climbing to all the Buddhist sites.

Blond to golden color. Light, dry, malt aroma. The taste can be quickly forgotten! Almost skunky final. Bad choice.
