fonefan (52396) - VestJylland, DENMARK - NOV 12, 2006
Bottle. Clear copper color with a off-white head. Aroma is weak, but fruity and malty with some hops. Fruity, citrus like flavor with malt and some caramel. Thin body but it’s hop-dominated, lightly dry finish.

yespr (48931) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - APR 15, 2008
From tap at Ørsted Ølbar. Pours golden orange/brown with a dense light yellowish head. Caramel malt, light butterish and mild spiced aroma. Flavour is light fruity mixed with caramel malt. Dry bitterness rising out of the malt and giving a dry bitter finish. Smooth flavour and mouthfeel, almost creamy.

Ungstrup (38958) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JAN 20, 2004
A red beer with a fine beige head. The aroma is dominated by bread combined with notes of fruit. The flavor slightly sour fruity on a background of good roasted bread. This one has a much better palate than the standard Bombardier - this is a lot better.

joergen (29624) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAY 23, 2005
Draft at DBF 2005. Clear brown colour with an off white head. Aroma of hops and malts. Watery flavour of malts and hops. Boring.

anders37 (27635) - Malmö, SWEDEN - APR 13, 2006
Draught. Dark ruby colour with an off-white head. Fruity caramel aroma. Malty fruity flavor with some bitterness and some hints of caramel. Malty bitter aftertaste.

oh6gdx (26485) - Vasa, FINLAND - SEP 1, 2005
Bottled, 5.2%. Dark copper colour, big foamy beige head. Fruity hoppy flavour with hints of malts. Fruity hoppy flavour with a bit artificial sweetness. Very sweetish bitter beer. Wellbalanced.

Travlr (26430) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - JUL 25, 2010
Dark golden color, medium white head, good lacing. Aroma of pepper and malt. Medium body. Taste is slightly bitter, summer fruits. Pretty good.

cgarvieuk (26387) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 5, 2007
Ruby colour with a alty nose, and a sweet fruit malt flavour with a little bitterness

omhper (25956) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - FEB 1, 2007
Bottled. Clear mahogany colour, rich head. Very fruity nose with some grass and dried plums. Dry with evident crystal malt character. There’s dusty, resiny hops, plums and some salt. Desperately dry bitter finish.

Papsoe (25054) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - NOV 22, 2005
(Bottle 50 cl) Beautiful reddish golden - almost coppery - with a handsome, dense head. Very goodlooking. Not overly full-bodied but quite refined and complex with a good mix of malt and some surprising almost cherryish notes. Marked hoppy finish. 200101
