yngwie (13108) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - FEB 28, 2014
Bottle. A clear, golden beer topped by a small, white head. Pretty grassy, resiny aroma with grapefruit peel and a malty touch. The flavor has pale malts as a backdrop for the bitterness, grass and grapefruit. Full body, nice carbonation and pretty dry. Lasting bitter finish with a hint of metal. Overall, sure a nice one, although a bit one dimensional. Easy drinkable too. 140228
