As much disdain as there is surrounding lagers in general, properly executed lagers provide a great all-rounder. This is one of those lagers. At home anywhere.

jgb9348 (4706) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - FEB 8, 2010
Golden coloured body with a light creamy glow and a very nice thick (two centimetre tall) off-white head. Aroma of corn, lemons, oranges, light hops and a touch of metal. Light-bodied; Sharp malty flavour with lemons, metal and some cardboard comes through. Aftertaste shows a light fruity flavour with a subtle hoppiness too. Overall, not such a great beer - fairly mild in flavours, but not horrible tasting at all. Worth a try if you can find this - I thought this was a common find, but it doesn’t look like it is - nice! I sampled this 500 mL bottle purchased from McHughes Off-License in Dublin, Ireland (Republic) on 20-February-2009, sampled at home on this side of the pond in Washington on 08-February-2010.

Ungstrup (29223) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - OCT 3, 2009
Bottled. A golden beer with a white head. The aroma has notes of hops and spices - among them ginger. The flavor is sweet with notes of cardboard on a lightly malty back ground, leading to a dry finish where the cardboard note lingers. Thanks KimJohansen for sharing.

Clear yellow of color with a white head. An aroma of hops, weak malt and dry notes. A flavor of malt, bread and bitter notes.
