Ungstrup (29142) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - AUG 15, 2004
UPDATED: APR 4, 2005 In my experience there’s a huge difference between the cask version and the bottle conditioned version of this beer. The grades are for the cask version. [Cask] A dark yellow beer with a fine white head. The aroma is sweet and very hoppy, but also with notes of yeast. The flavor is again very hoppy, but also with notes of oranges, grass, and oil, leading to a dry hoppy end. [Bottle Conditioned] A hazy yellow beer with a beutiful off-white head. The aroma is very sharp with grassy and hoppy notes. The flavor is very hoppy with a dry finish. A boring flavor combined with a thin body. [3/3/4/2/9]

Papsoe (25089) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - AUG 16, 2006
(Bottle 50 cl) Pours a hazy, pale amber with an almost non-existing head. Some light caramel aroma, but otherwise extremely citrusy from the Cascade. Fairly light-bodied completely dominated by the fresh, citrusy hop accents. Dry but not overly bitter. Nice one - thanks tbone_ 130806

oh6gdx (20239) - Vasa, FINLAND - OCT 13, 2005
Bottled. Hazy orangeish colour with white mediumsized head. Hops, fruit and honey in aroma. Mildly malty flavour with flowerish hops dominating. Nice hoppiness makes this a good one. Good beer to have with friends while being social at a pub. Nothing you would drink lots of though...

Hazy gold beer. Frothy white head. A slow persistent gusher but doesn’t smell or taste infected. Light palate, crispy and semi dry. Creamy dry malt. Fresh hops - grapefruit and a whisper of orange. Some minerals before a dry finish. Respectable.
