Draught at the Wharf Rat in fells point. Clear amber brown body with small off white head. Mildly sweet hop malt aroma. Malt and nuts on the pallet with a smooth richness. Slight caramel nut malt bitterness towards the end, flavorful! Quaffed this on a hot summer day trudging around Fells point with Death with a K and the wife and really liked it. Looking forward to getting down there again this year.

Ungstrup (29335) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - NOV 19, 2006
A hazy red beer with a lazing off-white head. The aroma is sweet with light notes of berries and diacethyl. The flavor is of diacethyl and fruit, combined with a light note of citrus, and with a dry bitter toffee end. Served too cold - is that to hide the diacethyl?
