COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The most complex of our beer line-up with a combination of five different malts and four different hop varieties. Buttface has the broadest popular appeal of our beers. It has a high malt character and lack of evident hops. This surprises people because it is easy to drink, but has a higher alcohol content than what is perceived.

yngwie (13946) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUN 29, 2013
On tap at Ram, Tacoma. It’s a pale amber colored beer topped by a small, off-white head. The aroma is a tad buttery, and too much on the toffee side for my likings. Some pleasant malts and fruityness too. The flavor is pretty much the same, but with the added joy of bittering hops. Medium to full body, pleasant carbonation. Well, it’s not foul in any way, it’s just not my kind of amber. 130629

(Bottle) Aroma is better than the name implies. Pours deep amber brown color with a small white head. Okay, but nothing overly exciting.
