yngwie (14008) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JAN 29, 2013
Bottle. It pours a clear, chestnut colored body and a nice, dense, off-white head. The aroma has a faint roasted note, as well as nuts, caramel and a hint of dried fruits. There’s not much spice aromas or flavors, which puzzles me a bit, I remember to have read there should be. Anyway, it’s a quite tasteful beer, at least considering the low ABV. Caramel, nuts, dried figs and apricots, a hint of yeast and roasted malts, and some balancing bitterness. It’s quite dry on the palate, with good carbonation. Medium to full body. The finish has something resembling cardamom, as well as the flavors found initially. Overall, a very nice grocery store strength Christmas beer, glad I found some more bottles of it.

Correction: The yeast and cardamom aroma came from my bun baking activity, not from the beer. How silly is that... 130129
