12 fl oz. Pours hazy pale yellow with a lacing head. Sweet citric to acidic note. Malty, hay and grassy flavour, slight sweet to medium dry. Finish is dry malty/grassy. Not _so_ bad and another country rating down. Huge thanks to Papsø for putting this on the table!

Ungstrup (37618) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - SEP 11, 2005
A light yellow beer with a thin white head. The aroma is next to non existing, but there are very faint notes of malt. The flavor is sweet malty with notes of caramel and straw, leading to a dry end. The mouthfeel is very carbonated and watery.
