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.

Ungstrup (31419) - 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.

Warning! Early amateur rating! Deep brown beer. Very mild and smooth. Late swell of worcester sauce tang. Very light palate - bordering on watery. Refreshing.
