Ungstrup (34690) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - AUG 23, 2006
[Cask at Charlies Bar, Copenhagen] A hazy orange beer with a lazing off-white head. The aroma is sweet with a presence of flowers and hops. The flavor is sweet malty with a strong note of fruit, and lots of hops, leading to a good bitter end. I could drink another pint or 10 of this.
