Ungstrup (29081) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - OCT 20, 2011
Draft. A hazy dark red beer with a thin beige head. The aroma has notes eggs, hops, limes, and vitamins. The flavor is sweet with notes of hops, flowers, malt, limes, and a bit of alcohol showing up in the finish, leading to a very bitter finish.

Papsoe (25090) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - NOV 15, 2011
On tap. Hazy amber with an off-white head. Weird skunky aroma - there’s some cats pee here AND fried onions and rubberbands. Medium-bodied with a light fruit sweetness, a vague whiff of peaches and then again these notes of pee and fart. The finish is dry but not overly bitter. Not really a hop that is easy to appreciate. 261011

oh6gdx (20217) - Vasa, FINLAND - DEC 14, 2012
Bottled (thanks Papsoe!). Slightly hazy amber colour, small slightly off-white head. Aroma is burnt rubber, some slight cloakwater and mild herbal notes. Flavour is rather similar, has some slight catpee in the background. Hmm, not good. I will rather enjoy the aroma of a rotten eggfart than this beer. Atleast rotten eggfarts are funny. This beer is not.

Light haze on this darkish amber beer. Big fluffy white head. The head has a startling garlic flavour! Palate is smooth, a little soft and slightly dry. Creamy malt base - mild. The Apollo follows the head with more garlic and just a whisper of citrus. Finishes semi dry. Never had such a garlic led apollo beer!

fiulijn (14298) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 18, 2012
Bottle at Ørsted, Copenhagen
Parallel with Single Hop Summit

Hazy amber color with generous compact head. The aroma is meaty, roasted ham (not smoke), with a light herbal and minty touch, also iced apples (Ice Cider) and light sweat. It has the classic Mikkeller caramel and dry toffee flavor; the bitterness is strong, with resins that are a bit piney; the final is quite balanced long.
But overall this beer is rough.
