Ungstrup (34715) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - AUG 8, 2003
[Cask at GBBF 2003] A light yellow beer with a creamy but disappearing head. The aroma is sweet and simple. The flavor is sweet and simple too but it ends on a fine bitterness, that turns dry and lingers. A simple but good bitter.

Warning! Early amateur rating! On tap at the Sun Inn, Kelvedon. Very distinctive beer. Pronounced orange and lemon tones. Sharp and thirst quenching. Could sink loads of these.

UPDATED: MAY 28, 2012 Golden yellow colour, with a sour hop nose, and a very hoppy palate thats quite bitter and drying.

Bottle at home ... golden yellow ... thin white head ... dry bitter lemon hop nose ... soft dry haps ... light floral bitter fruit hop ... light dry linger ... little grassy ... still not me 3.0
