Very pale straw colour with a bit of haze and a huge creamy white head. Aroma is quite earthy and dusty. Crisp German noble hop aroma over a slightly husky malt base. Crisp throughout with a prominent sulfurous character. Very lean body. Short crisp hop finish. Warming brings forth a bit of earthy, noble hop flavour. Bone dry in the finish. There’s a bit of mustiness that I don’t really care for in here, but otherwise very refreshing.

UPDATED: AUG 8, 2008 I’ve had this before, not nowhere near as fresh as I just had it, so this one is a definite rerate- Clear blonde in color with moderate to heavy carbonation and a long lasting medium head with nice sticky lacing. Aroma is full of noble hops and some light bready malts in the background- clean and inviting. Taste is a nice fresh bready pils malt backbone with alot of earthy noble,and lightly spicy hops. Medium bodied for the style, with a crisp, dry finish- pretty much flawless.

Can from Jeff (doclock) Thanks! Pretty neat looking design on the can. I havent heard anything about this beer, but I do know that alot of the brewers now are sticking beers in cans, and that is really cool. This is a niec one, I could drink multiples of it, with ease. Smell is grassy, straw, and some hops. Taste is smooth and refreshing and slightly bitter. Reminds me of a weakened prima pils. Still, this is some good stuff. Thanks for the can Jeff.

From a can, and a cool can at that. The NJ crew had been recommending this one for a while. I finally bought one of these at the Foodery in Philly. Pours straw golden, with lots of carbonation and a soft white head. Mild lacing. Very pronounced aroma of spicy hops, lemon, and grass. Flavor of european pale malts, grain, with hints of lemon. Crisp and spicy bitter finish, that has some dry grassiness that lingers. A pretty hoppy pils, perhaps overdone. Good, but not as good as Victory Prima Pils.

I’m surprised this is so well rated by everyone on the site. so maybe the batch I had at the beerfest was tainted. def. worth a try yourself and I’ll probably give it another go another time. served at the NYC Brewtopiafest and inspired a very goofy scary picture of a fanged fox in the woods. my friends did not like this very much. when I discussed with them how I would rate it overall out of 20 my friend Wendy said it smelled and tasted like armpits and therefore I should rate it "armpits out of 20". I don’t know about the armpits, but I agree this is not a great beer. my only guess is that it is really yeasty and to an inexperienced beer drinker, this may come off smelling and tasting unpleasantly and "off". other than the yeast this pours a thin, grimy straw yellow body with a minimal white head. not carbonated enough. too watered down of a palate. aroma is sweet, light hops and grain. tastes of light, citrus hops, bready yeast, grain, pine and lemon. I think we’ll say the yeast flavors are not well balanced and leave it at that.

Pale yellow product with a tiny bit of hops in both aroma and flavor. Fairly lacking in flavor.

Ungstrup (30382) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - OCT 11, 2006
A slightly hazy yellow beer with a thin white head. The aroma is sweet with primary notes of citrus, but also light notes of hops and malt. The flavor is sweet and rather hoppy with light citrusy notes and a rather dry finish.

Pours clear yellow with white head. Aroma is malt and grass. Flavor is the same with a little hops kick. Not bad.

Sampled at Arg0’s Pre-RBSG Tasting at his pad: Pale yellow, white head and nice lacing. Nose of crispy light hops, earthy. The flavor is nicely malty, clean and grassy, thin mouthfeel and overall good. Nice pilsner with a nice hoppy character, much more on tone with a lagered IPA or something.
