Ungstrup (31471) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JAN 11, 2010
Bottled. A hazy amber beer with a huge off-white head. The aroma has notes of citrusy hops, and lighter notes of malt and caramel. The flavor is sweet with notes of metal, malt, alcohol, and caramel, leading to a bitter finish. Thanks yespr for sharing.

oh6gdx (23682) - Vasa, FINLAND - SEP 9, 2007
Bottled. Amber colour with no head. Aroma is applejuice, some slight spicyness along with malts. Flavour is spiced and shows signs of alcohol. OK brew, but nothing really special. Low to non-existing carbonation.

Bottled, thanks oh6gdx! Clear amber. The nose holds grass and hay, thank comes butter, glue and apples. Medium bodied wuth rounded mouthfeel. The finer details gets lost in the glue.

fiulijn (16924) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 11, 2010
Tasting at Papsø’s
Hazy orange-amber color; small creamy head. Mild Ale, with a simple malt and nutty character, light residual sweetness; but a light sourness is evidence of a possible light infection. Good hopping and correct bitterness. Still drinkable, but not for long.

harrisoni (15794) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - NOV 14, 2005
75cl Bottle at London Gathering Nov 05, originally from Auchan, Calais. Browny russet colour with thick beige head. Slight haze. Toffee, candy sugar and green hop nose on the aroma with some yeast. OK in mouth with more toffee, yeast and hop on finish. Didn’t detect any rotting hedgehog, damp cardboard or maggots as Silk did

yngwie (15759) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - OCT 1, 2010
Bottle, 75cl. It’s a nice-looking amber beer, clear at first, but with some clouds when getting closer to the bottom of the bottle. A quite lively carbonation leaves a two-finger, dense, beige head. Some lacings occur. The aroma is dominated by mixed dried fruits, apricots, prunes and dates, with some underlying cellar, white sugar, fresh fruits and a whiff of alcohol. It’s full-bodied, smooth and a bit too effervescent. Slightly warming too, especially in the finish, which is also sweet, fruity and with some toffee. The flavor is maybe a bit too sweet and sugary, and that drowns the complexity and layers found in the aroma. Sugary dried and fresh fruits might be a deScription to sum up the flavor experience. Add some boozy alcohol to that picture. Overall, a decent beer indeed, but I wish it was a bit less sweet and alcoholic. One more thing, the label doesn’t mention any sugar added, but gluten! Strange! Well, I had no problems finising the bottle, neither this time nor the last time I had one. 101001
