Ungstrup (37231) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - OCT 7, 2005
[Cask at Charlies Bar, Copenhagen] A hazy nut-brown beer with a thin beige head. The aroma is sweet fruity combined with notes of nuts - but a bit on the light side. The flavor is sweet and very malty and with powerful notes of toffee and nuts, leading to a dry bitter and slightly roasted end.
