Ungstrup (29369) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - FEB 10, 2007
Draft at the Phoenixville location, July 2006. A dark orange beer with a thin lazing beige head. The aroma is lovely sweet and hoppy with some grapefruit notes, my guess is Cascade. The flavor is sweet with notes of caramel, but very early the hops hits the palate with strong notes of grass, that turns more towards grapefruit towards the end, which is very dry and bitter.

Canned at Oliver Twist, Stockholm. Clear ruby, minimal head. Resiny plum aroma. Sweetish with clean, hard mouthfeel and medium body, some caramel. Resin dominates, some bitter orange lurks behind. Disharmonious and harsh.

fiulijn (14790) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 8, 2011
Bottle from Havnens, Vejle
Cloudy amber color; generous head, frothy; apparently the carbonation is high. The aroma is quite fruity, some tangerines. The mouthfeel is rather dry, maybe there has been an additional fermentation in the bottle; strong caramel flavor, and strong bitterness; the hopping brings some harsh resins; the final is long and a tad too bitter.
I suspect it’s not at its prime.
