Ungstrup (29022) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - FEB 11, 2007
A yellow beer with a thin white head. The aroma is sweet malty with slight notes of caramel and hops. The flavor is sweet malty with a crisp hoppiness. Nothing special, but very easily drinkable.

fiulijn (14294) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 10, 2009
<i>Draught at Duke of Argyll, London</i>
Blond color, small head. The temperature doesn’t help the aroma, very light malt. The flavor manages to show a better crispy malt. Bold bitterness. Balanced and robust, even if not thrilling.

On tap the Princess Louise. Clear gold beer, very malty with a distinct caraway nuttyness. A bit different for a lager but would not want loads.
