Hazy amber beer, tidy off white head. Fresh malt base with a little dried fruit. Somewhat German like! Fresh and fairly neutral palate. A little generic fruit with some aniseed. The fruit tastes a little crystallised. Not bad at all. Really reminds me of a fresh German Beer but turned up to 11.

yngwie (13160) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - APR 7, 2012
Bottle, 12oz. A clear one, golden in color and topped by an off-white head. The aroma is alcoholic and malty, quite sweetish, and with some beef stock. Alcohol, malty sweetness, beef stock, some nuttyness and a decent hoppyness in the flavor. Full bodied and almost sticky on the palate. Sweet finish with dried fruits. Not a favorite of mine this one, but certainly a fine brew anyway. 110826
