Ungstrup (38413) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - APR 3, 2004
The aroma is of hops, grass, and oil. THe color is amber and it has a small head. The flavor is not pleasant; it is sour bitter from a weird hop combination. The end is very dry. Not a beer for me.

chriso (21656) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 27, 2010
Bottle @ pre-GBBF shindig, August 2009. Old bottle, not sure of the age. Hazy amber. Fairly malty with some sweetness. Touch of dry hop presence on the finish. Has held up reasonably well but not especially interesting. More like a fruity premium bitter than a strong ale.
