Ungstrup (35904) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAY 20, 2003
A light yellow beer wth a small fast disappearing head. The aroma is slightly sour and slightly sweet with notes of brewmash. When drinking it, the brewmash hits you at first, then a slight prickling sourness. It is slightly flat with a slight bitterness to round off the impression. All in all an average beer.
