The aroma was a mix of the expected tropical fruit: passion fruit, mango and citrus notes of orange and some malt. Citrus develops over the other flavours in the taste and thereís more grapefruit than anything else, but thereís also lemon and marmalade in there. The malt backbone adds rather than subtracts from the beer and the finish is a moreish, mellow dry affair. A light-medium bodied beer that packs a lot of flavour in at a very reasonable alcohol level. Another winner from Arbor.

yngwie (15194) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - FEB 16, 2013
Bottle. An unclear, golden-orange beer topped by a minimal sized white head. The aroma is rather weak, with lightly piney hops doing most of the work. Thereís a little maltyness in there as well. The flavor is bitter and piney, with some pale malts in the back. Medium body, quite dry. Bitter, piney finish. A beer that I donít think will impress anyone, at least not geeks, but it drinks easy. 130216
