Ungstrup (29286) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAY 14, 2003
A orange unclear beer with a fine head for a cask conditioned beer. The aroma is fruity with notes of orange. The flavor is very nice with notes of orange, fruit, and flowers. It ends on a great bitterness - from a good bitter hop.

Papsoe (25085) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUL 6, 2005
(Bottle 50 cl) Dark, hazy amber with a small off-white head. Lovely malty base with notes of both nuts and caramel. But no real sweetness, on the contrary a dry, dry bitter hoppiness. Rather lovely. An extreme yeast sediment finishes this. 010605

omhper (19372) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - MAY 17, 2003
UPDATED: JUN 26, 2003 Sampled cask conditioned at the Danish Beer Festival.
Cloudy orange. Rich grapefruity cascade hop aroma. Medium sweet and medium bodied with long bitter finish wher grapefruit is predominant. The sample I had still felt a bit raw, and given enough time to condition this is a beer with great potential. Already as it was it is a really good ale.

Typical pale ale but with a little more muscle. Sour mid with a good hoppy bitter finish.

2011-07-26, draught at Mikkeller Bar, Copenhagen, 6% ABV, 7-4-7-4-14=36
Hazy golden color; creamy head. The aroma is initially hoppy, then also some manure (light rubber too). Lean body, with a quite good malt and toffee flavor, followed by a correct degree of bitterness; the hop qualities are present but timid. Strong bitterness.
Quite pleasant overall.

2007-11-25, bottle , 5.9% ABV, 6-4-7-4-13=34
Cloudy orange to light amber color; too much sediment in the bottle. The aroma is not too strong, with dusty cereals and some fruity hop. Good body structure, with a strong toffee flavor and a very strong bitterness; it’s also a bit metallic in the beginning. Very long final. The hop is strong, but contributes more to the toffeish flavor than with other aromatic oils. Not impressive.

2003-05-10, Cask Conditioned, 5.5% ABV, 9-5-8-5-17=44
Cloudy orange-amber color. Very nice hop aroma, fresh, like the cones. Good taste, quite malty and a lot hoppy; maybe too much yeast… Long palate, an explosion of hop; strong and aromatic.
