Ungstrup (29988) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUN 23, 2005
A light yellow beer with a disappearing white head. The aroma is of corn and metal and so is the flavor with a dry end.

Papsoe (25074) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - FEB 26, 2006
(Bottle 33 cl) Pours a pilsener golden with a small, white head. Lovely floral, hoppy nose that doesn’t last long though. Medium body with sweet malt and a vague underlying tartness from what I believe is brewing cereal. Very discreet - almost absent - bitterness. 260206

omhper (20568) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - JUL 14, 2008
Canned at Petelax Beer Festival. Clear pale yellow, airy head. Papery and syrupy. Sweet and metallic with uncelan swetay fruit flavour. To call it mediocre would be an overstatement. This is awful.

Bottle at Bistro Atlantic (inside Keflavík International Airport)
Pale blond color with small head. Boring Lager, nothing to write about.

yngwie (14764) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - APR 18, 2009
Can. A clear, slighlty pale golden beer with a finger thick white head on top. Hayish, grassy nose with some pale malts and a hint of fruity, spicy hops. Medium body with a good carbonation. Dry, with biscuity malts, grassy, spicy hops and some hay. Quite low on bitterness. Short finish with some bitterness and a little maltyness. A quite tasteful one, at least considering the style, but it’s nothing impressing about it. Just a clean, boring lager like many others. (090418)
