Ungstrup (29224) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JAN 24, 2003
An orange beer with no head. The aroma is slight with notes of orange. The flavor is a bit flat - as cask conditioned ales sometimes are. The flavor has hints of orange, a slight sweetness and ending on a really good bitterness. A fine beer - but not great.
