great hoppy aroma, i think there is a small earthy taste, and some hops, maybe some herbs. a fine beer with a lot of power Stuu666 (14596) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 10, 2015

(Draught at Monk’s Porterhouse, Stockholm, 18 May 2012) Amber colour with frothy, off-white head. Fruity, hoppy nose with notes of citrus, dried apricots and tropical fruit. Hoppy, malty taste with caramel, grain, citrus, grapefruit, passion fruit, grass and a generous citric bitterness in the finish. Medium body, quite dry. Tasty and refreshing. Very nice and highly drinkable. jesperhammer (4874) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUN 13, 2012

Well, here I sit in the pub where I last saw Oliver, slightly welling up, and not necessarily able to focus so much on the beer. But it’s a beer that’s befitting of a person and an occassion that demands respect. The first thing you notice is that it’s quite fresh and lively. Slightly hazy, but a good head, Full of character, and with the kind of bitterness that I really appreciate. No negatives, you enjoy every moment. And even when gone, those good things linger in your head for a long time. A real pleasure to encounter one like this. So I raise a toast to you, Oliver McFadden, it was an honour to have known you. Hmm, the question is now whether I should review this beer...
Bottle, 33 cl. Clear golden with a dense white head, quickly diminishing becoming a small fine layer. Very fresh fruity hoppy aroma of passionfruit, kiwi, lime, light vanilla. Quite enticing. Flavor is medium sweet light maltiness and lots of fruity hops, leading to a medium bitter finish. Very well balanced with a light body, but the oily hops make this is a perfect quencher and by far the best beer I’ve so far from Ugly Duck. jensgam (159) - , DENMARK - APR 13, 2013

Bottle at Bar & Cigar, march 1st 2013. A Single hop Nelson Sauvin pale ale, can’t let that pass! A clear golden body with almost no head got me thinking maybe I was wrong? Lookskind of boring doesn’t it? Well, one shouldn’t be fooled by the look, and in this case that’s absolutely true, a unmistakable peach and grapefruit aroma fromthe Nelson strikes me as soon as I lift the glass. Moving the glass carefully to the nose because I was distracted by something that DID look good I poured my glass way too full, the fruity characteristics are really strong, and finally there’s some malt,bread notes too. Not much, this beer seemsto be all about the hop, which I can’t blame anyone for. On to the taste, the hops are totally dominating here too, fruity with a slightly grassy stinch, some sweetness letting through, but the bitterness does it’s job very well and could easily be mistaken for an ipa, as I later read the label said too. No points for guessing the aftertaste. Yup, fruity, grapefruit mostly, lasting, and a very good first beer for the day. kalervo (1055) - FINLAND - JUL 14, 2013
Decent Danish quality. Quite strong bodied APA with well balanced hoppiness.
