yngwie (13214) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUN 9, 2006
Bottled. Deep copper in color, with a dense, beige head. It has a sweet aroma with some alcohol, malt and a good dash of hops. The flavor is malty and sweet, with lots of piny and fruity hops in it, some alcohol too. Fullbodied, very bitter, hoppy beer, with a lightly roasted note and some alcohol in the finish. Hop-heaven in a bottle. (060513)
