COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
330 ml bottles. Unpasteurised, but filtered and artificially carbonated. Now mainly sold as Sainsbury's Viennese Style Amber Lager (Summer only).
A 'small batch' copper coloured lager combining lightly kilned Vienna and Munich malts to create a gentle balance of caramel and fruit flavours. Its subtle sweetness and rich barley taste is underpinned by the gentle spice of its Hallertau and Spalter hops.

NosirIwont (2140) - Aalborg Vestby, DENMARK - SEP 11, 2006
Bottle. Pours a clear amber-brown with a fluffy beige/brown head. Slightly sweetish aroma with lots of hops on a malty background. As it warms it gets more sweet and fruity notes appear. Sweetish flavour. Fruity, malt. Feels a bit thin. Finish is rather thin at first, but a mild bitterness kicks in after a while. Dry, grassy and lingering hoppy notes. But pretty boring still. This beer starts out okay but ends kinda dull. 11-09-06.

Bottled. Amber coloured. Clear. Beige small head. Sweet and fruity aroma with some distinct flowery notes. Flavour is a little less sweet. Dominated by flowers and herbs with some light caramel notes. Quite pleasant and easy to go to. Medium bodied with a quite smooth mouthfeel. Is balanced. Ends on a light bitter caramelly note.

Ungstrup (30449) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAR 23, 2006
A deep amber beer with a huge orange head. The aroma is sweet malty combined with notes of brewmash, fruits, and citrus. The flavor is also sweet malty with strong notes of fruit, especially oranges, but also notes of brewmash and caramel, the malt note has a hint of roastiness - like roasted bread. The body is a bit thin.
