Ungstrup (37583) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - DEC 17, 2002
A dark amber beer with a fine head. It has a sweet aroma of malt with hints of fruitiness. The flavor is a nice flat english bitterness. It contains notes of smoked malt in a good malt blend, that gives it a nice slight sweetness before it ends on a great dry hoppy bitterness. Definatly a great beer, I wish I knew where I could buy it (I got mine from the brewmaster at Ceres when Ceres still owned Cains)

Clear amber with an off-white head. Aroma is sweet, fruity, malty, caramel and light hoppy. Light sweet flavor and only light bitter. Thin body and watery. Boring. 070111

fiulijn (20493) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 26, 2005
Can
Amber color. Some hop aroma. Some sweetness, but too simple taste, some malt and caramel, not enough bitter.

3.2
harrisoni (18578) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - MAR 27, 2007
440ml can from Asda, Liverpool. Rich deep chestnut colour with thin off white head. Malty bitter aroma. Some digestive biscuit rich malt. Some candy sugar in mouth before bittering hops kick in . A fullish decent bitter ruined by pasteurisation. Otherwise it carries a fair number of items from the cask version, especially the bitter hops on the finish.

2.9
yngwie (17053) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - NOV 26, 2007
Bottle. (tasting at papsoe’s) Clear, copper beer with a dense, off-white head. Malty, slightly roasted nose and flavor. The flavor has a vague but pleasant hoppy fruityness and bitterness as well, especially towards the finish. Medium, quite dry mouthfeel. A bit brown-ale-ish for a bitter, but a decent beer indeed. (071006)
