Ungstrup (34350) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - OCT 21, 2003
The aroma is sweet with strong grassy and hoppy notes and underlying notes of yeast. The color is red-brown and is has a very small and fast disappearing head. The flavor is plain sweet with notes of grains, malt, caramel, and yeast. It finishes on a grassy hoppy note - without much bitterness. The body is thin - probably because of the 4% ABV. An easy drinkable beer - but nothing special - I think this would be a great beer to quench your thirst after hard physical labor - because it has much more taste than an international lager and is still extremely fresh.

oh6gdx (25327) - Vasa, FINLAND - FEB 4, 2011
Bottled (from bierzwerg.de). Copper colour, mediumsized foamy/fluffy slightly off-white head. Aroma is caramel malts, some bready notes as well as mild notes of syrup. Flavour is being quite much the same along with some grassy and mildly nutty notes. A bit boring, but technically no big flaws.

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAR 19, 2005
UPDATED: JUN 13, 2005 (Bottle 33 cl) A fine example to prove the fact, that an ale doesn’t really have to be very potent to be extremely tasty. Dark amber close to brown, filtered, not much head. Nutty, malty notes. dry at first but some sweetness occurs on the palate. High on carbonation. Very pleasant ale. 011203
