fonefan (35066) - VestJylland, DENMARK - JUN 22, 2006
A complex beer , with a nice smouth bitterness in the end. What a great beer. Can’t say anything negative about it. Aroma was malty sweet and a touch of caramel. Flavor also had the same as the nose but a little sweeter, grassy, and yeasty.

ZBF2008: From tap. Pours clear and golden light brown with a lacing off-white head. Light spiced and caramel malty aroma. Flavour is dry caramel, light spiced. Ends with much of same, lingering malty and yeasty flavour. Nice.

Ungstrup (29333) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JAN 28, 2003
UPDATED: DEC 21, 2005 An amber beer with a great head. The aroma is sweet with notes of caramel and yeast as well as nuts. The flavor is sweet with notes of wood, nuts, fruits, and plums, leading to a sweet smooth caramel end.

Papsoe (25085) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAY 14, 2005
UPDATED: JAN 9, 2006 (Bottle 33 cl) The gimmicky glass is NOT the main thing about this beer. Actually the "Kwak" is a very decent ale in it’s own right. Beautiful amber with a nice creamy head. Lots of floating yeast. Has some caramel-like notes but never gets sweet or cloying. Very nice ale. 181093

omhper (19378) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - JUL 6, 2006
[Bottled at East End Brewery, Quarry Bay, Hong Kong] Amber colour, firm creamy head. Toffee is obvious up front. Caranel and almond dominates this fairly soft malt driven beer. It has solid body, a light yeast character and lightly grassy finish. It’s not very complex, but really pleasant.

Warning! Early amateur rating! A ridiculously overpriced bottle in Lowlander, Aldgate. Dark beer. Good carbonation. Sweet malts and some of that Belgian tang. Nice.

Orange - light amber color. Very nice aroma: hops and oranges. Malty, with a light sourness and tartness; fruity as well. Correct final. Quite original.
