Ungstrup (28448) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - SEP 6, 2006
[Cask at Charlie’s Bar, Copenhagen] A hazy orange beer with a thin beige head. The aroma is sweet combined with a weird acidity, and some kind of herbal note. The flavor is sweet with light diacethyl notes, combined with stronger notes of fruits, like peaches, oranges, and guave, leading to a weird flowery hoppy end. I’m disappointed in this beer compared to the rest of the West Berkshire line-up that I’ve tried.

Cask. Amber colour with a minor head. Aroma is mild maltyness, some mild floral and nectary notes as well. Flavour is rather similar, but has a more grassy bitterness to it. Refreshing, but otherwise quite boring.

harrisoni (12674) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - APR 30, 2006
Cask gravity at Reading BF 06. Amber beer. Not much of anything. Some hop, some toffee. Actually this got better as I sipped it. I don’t normally like toffee dominated bitters, but this one worked
