yngwie (12605) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 19, 2011
Bottle. A dark red beer, clear, and topped by a small, dense, off-white head. The aroma is dominated by black currant, not much room left for anything else. The same goes for the flavor, but at least some beery flavors are coming through. Medium body, dry, and quite pleasant on the carbonation. Overall, rather horrific, but then I don’t like black currant very good. 110819
