Ungstrup (37230) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JAN 16, 2008
Cask at Charlie’s Bar, Copenhagen. A slighlty hazy amber beer with a thin white head. The aroma is sweet malty combined with flowery hop notes. The flavor is sweet malty with quite strong fruity diacethyl notes, and a very bitter finish - surprisingly bitter for a golden ale.

madmitch76 (24360) - , Essex, ENGLAND - FEB 14, 2010
2nd December 2008. Clear brown beer - a small creamy head. Highly spiced beer! Lots of ginger and cinnamon. Not quite overpowering but unapologetically spicy and I would struggle to drink much of it.

UPDATED: FEB 17, 2009 2008-12-02, Gravity dispense at Pig’s Ear Festival 2008, London, 6-4-5-2-10
Hazy amber color. Strong cinnamon aroma (I don’t love cinnamon anymore, a reaction to living for some years in the Nordic, but it’s not bad). The flavor instead is dry, thin, with harsh cinnamon, poor. Not interesting.

2008-01-15, Cask Conditioned at Charlie’s Pub, Copenhagen, 5-3-6-2-10=26
Amber color. Strange Ale, quite simple, dry mouthfeel, light caramel flavor, and some manure aroma and flavor.
