Bottled (K CM Kivihaka, Vaasa). Golden colour, small white head. Aroma is fruity, floral, some grassyness and quite malty. Flavour is quite similar with some good bitterness in the finish. Mild doughy notes as well (due to see through clean bottles?)

Geuzelambix (243) - København, DENMARK - JUL 29, 2012
The classic Welsh Brains. Undeniable British but not as flat on bottle as often seen on cask. Very mild. Doesn’t insult anyone. Pleasent and a little dull.

yngwie (13529) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUN 23, 2012
Bottle. A clear, dark golden beer with a small, dense, off-white to white head. Biscuity, almost bready nose with fruityness and some grass hints. Medium body, soft carbonation and semi-sweet. Some sweetness in the flavor, with biscuity malts and a fruity touch. Short finish with the same elements found initially. Drinkable indeed, but I’d prefer lots of other beers to this. 120623
