Ungstrup (29224) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - APR 17, 2003
[Cask at Cockney Pub] A dark orange beer with no head. The aroma is very faint with fruity notes. The flavor is very nice; sweet, fruity, casky and very bitter from a great hop. The bitterness lingers on the tongue. A great beer that invites to another pint.
