Bottled. Ungstrup (38582) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - AUG 23, 2004
Light brown colour. Vague aroma of roasty malt. Flavour seems cheap and bland, there might be some flavour but where?
The aroma is light with notes of roasted malt and sweetness. The color is light brown and it has a small head. The flavor is dry with notes of caramel and malt. motelpogo (8031) - Plzen, CZECH REPUBLIC - AUG 16, 2004
a little on the skinny side. toffee and alcoholic lemonade with a light metallic and salty finish Cobra (1100) - - AUG 10, 2004
12 oz. brown, longneck bottle. No freshness date seen anywhere. madsberg (11776) - Søborg, DENMARK - AUG 5, 2004
Poured out a deep caramel color, bordering on brown. Thick, tan colored head lasted a good little while, but not to the bottom of the pint glass. It left a sticky lacing, though. Aromas are of sweet caramel / crystal malts, some dry biscuit notes, and subdued hops. Tastes are mostly of sweet caramel, some background maltiness, and hops make an all too brief appearance at the very end. A little too sweet for my liking, but a decent local brew all the same.
Bottled: Dark amber coloured. Beige medium sized head. Malty and light fruity aroma. Some hints of caramel. Flavours of chocolate and hops. A bit thin bodied, but ends on a medium bitter note.

Golden brown colour. Hints of molasses, brown bread crust. Dry brown malt notes (though I doubt they use it in a dunkel). Rather thin, though. Toasty, minerally finish. Disappointing given my previous experiences with this brewery. jimhilt (2629) - Bow, New Hampshire, USA - JUL 6, 2004
Pours with a two-finger white head that some lace. Clear amber color. Medium bodied but slightly watery finish and light carbonation. Slightly malty nose. Starts sweet finishes mellow and not dry. $1.65 for a 12oz. bottle from Colonial Spirits Acton, Ma. DocLock (11103) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 25, 2004
Poured copper with medium white head. Decent aroma of malt, toffee, caramel, pronounced red wine. Tastes malty, with a caramelly, brown sugary, concord grapey finish. Fairly complex and smooth. Not bad at all. I’m looking forward to the other DeGroen’s styles. jeffc666 (1984) - Fairfax, Virginia, USA - MAY 28, 2004
Copper body clear witha minmal tan head. Light caramel aroma, not much going on here. The flavor is also caramel but also rather timid. Medium chewy body. Just OK. fly (1487) - austin, Tejas, Texas, USA - MAY 3, 2004
Rather simplistic, but nice. Peeking at the brewer’s description I can’t say that I disagree. Being that I’ve had some disappointing ones in Germany, I will say that this is a fairly decent beer. Not great, but good and well made.
