harrisoni (15794) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - FEB 26, 2007
500ml bottle from Franglais, Calais. This was my free bottle (buy 5 get one free, so I ended up with 8 scoops for €15 which I thought was a good deal). I’m not convinced that the bottled version is filtered as there is definitely some sediment in the bottom and it poured as a hazy copper colour. Thick lasting off white head. Slight yeast aroma. Some nice citrus hop too. Bit too carbonated. Nice yeast, malt, hop aroma balance. The bubbles are just too much. Quite a decent bitter, if it was on cask. I seem to remember having this at a Wetherspoons in Canterbury and liking it. Nice malts, reasonable fullness in the mouth.

yngwie (15759) - 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
