Ungstrup (29223) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - NOV 4, 2010
Draft. A light amber beer with a thin white head. The aroma has light notes of caramel. The flavor is sweet with a solid malt base, that makes it almost chewy and notes of caramel as well as a touch of alcohol.

Papsoe (25088) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUL 20, 2009

bhensonb (10930) - Woodland, California, USA - JUL 24, 2010
Tap at Stone Bistro. Pours dark copper with a creamy off-white head. Aroma is mildly funky/carbolic - but so mild it might be wishful smelling. Med. body - creamy carb. Flavor is definitely more malty than anything else. There’s a little yeast; there’s a little barnyard. But it’s primarily bready/malty. Still it washed down the duck taco and habanero salsa something proper.

brokensail (10785) - Orange County, California, USA - MAY 8, 2010
A: The pour is amber/copper in color with a thin ring of white foam. S: The nose is somewhat on the light side with some sweet caramel and bready malts. There’s also a nice toast bready aroma to it. T: The beer is caramelly and sweet with that usual bready malt flavor. Some light baking spices, like cinnamon, as well. Unfortunately, there’s a very noticeable alcohol presence. M: The body is on the full side with a moderate level of carbonation and a bit of warmth. D: I liked some of the flavors and aromas in the beer, but it was unfortunately, the alcohol presence ruined the experience for me.

On tap at Taps. Color was golden amber with a white head and some lacing. Aroma of caramel apples, vanill and sugar. Very nice. flavor of yeast, apple, bubblegum with a bit of alcohol and bread. Like most of their beers, this was solid to good for the style.
