yespr (40140) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - MAY 11, 2008
50 cL bottle. Pours clear and golden orange with a dense off-white head. Aroma is dry, light dusty, malt with a mild hops note. Flavour is light acidic at first with a mild mouldy touch following. Slowly unfolding caramel malt with a mild earth note and accompanied with a slight ash-tray hops bitterness. Nice and smooth and well balanced.

Ungstrup (34226) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - NOV 30, 2003
The aroma is fruity and malty with notes of nuts. The color is orange and it has a fantastic head. The flavor is nice; sweet malty with slightly roasted notes combined with caramel, oranges, peaches, and wood. It ends on a good bitterness. A really lovely ale - very complex.

oh6gdx (25182) - Vasa, FINLAND - DEC 6, 2007
Bottled. Golden colour, mediumsized beige creamy head. Aroma is fruity and mildly sweet malty. Flavour is very much the same, really smooth beer, that leaves a fruity hoppy aftertaste. Quite pleasant.

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - DEC 11, 2005
(Bottle 55 cl) Fully golden with a small, white head. Flavours are simply great. Extremely fruity and malty with a lovely balancing bitterness. Flavours really stand in line here to leave their mark. 280602

Bottled. Deep golden with average head. Hoppy, fruity nose. The typical delicate Samuel Smith maltiness spiced with a good dose of grassy hops. Dry and firm with a bitter finish. Excellently balanced.

Orange colour, light nose, with lots of fruit in flavour, quite bitter and too bitter for me.

fiulijn (18725) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 27, 2003
Golden color. Light aroma, with some honey and straw. Average body, with some malt and a bery strong bitterness. Pleasant, but somehow without personality, and a bit metallic.
