Ungstrup (38547) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - APR 26, 2013
Bottled. A pale golden beer with a thin beige head. The aroma has notes of straw and malt. The flavor is sweet with notes of straw and malt, leading to a dry finish.

AWISLguy (3368) - Wisconsin, USA - AUG 23, 2013
Bottle from Woodmans in Waukesha. Pours an unclear amber color with a faint white head. Aroma has pine and caramel, and more toasty, caramelly malt. Taste is of sweet caramel, faint pine and a lot of resin. Medium bodied and fairly thick for a pale. Shrug? Not the type of take on the style that is enjoyable.

euniceradio (562) - Worthington, Minnesota, USA - MAR 15, 2016
12oz bottle to pint. Pours cloudy iced tea color, dissipating off white head. Aroma of pine, fig, grass, raisin. Taste of same with finish of burnt toast and biscuit. Finish is as bitter and dry as they claim.

JDBaker11058 (2375) - Maryland, USA - JUL 26, 2017
appearance: clear orange copper, half a finger of creamy light tan head with excellent cling. aroma: caramel, marmalade, candied orange peel, graham cracker, toast, grapefruit, hint of pine and cardboard. taste: piney orange marmalade up front, then caramel and cardboard-y malts, some grapefruit and tonic water notes. finish: chewy, slightly syrupy with a bit of heat forming in the back of my throat; bitterness rises and holds the end. notes: Not a bad beer. Not my favorite style, and it didn’t quite work for me. Bottle from the Beer of the Month Club.

Golden pour with thick, creamy white head. Caramel nose with light bittering hops. Flavor is lightly bitter, some nice hop flavor. A bit pineapple and nice malt. Solid pale here.

copper color, clear, decent citrus hoppiness in the nose. flavor is a nice mix of brown sugar and citrus. the bitterness is more along the lines of an IPA rather than an APA. clean and crisp...not bad.

GJF (1520) - Mount Vernon, Iowa, USA - SEP 19, 2009
copper color, a bit of citrus hoppiness. flavor is a nice mix of malt and citrus. It says APA here, but it was marketed to us on tap as a double IPA--definitely not a DIPA. fairly dry body. It’s OK.

badnewsbeers (2312) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - APR 12, 2010
Golden pour with small head. Aroma of sweet malt, lemon zest and grass. Flavor is quite funky and sour. Citrus hops initially, leading to a slightly sticky, sweet finish. Hints of diacetyl.
