yngwie (13345) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - OCT 17, 2012
Bottle, from trade with Papsoe. A finger-thick, off-white head sits on top of a clear, golden body. Mostly citrusy and piney aroma, with some maltyness underneath. Quite a lot of pink grapefruit, both in the aroma and flavor. Soft and smooth on the palate, full-bodied and semi-sweet. Quite bitter flavor, with a pleasant maltyness underneath. Lasting finish with pink grapefruit and a nice bitterness. A pleasant one. 121017

Bottle from Stirchley Wines, Birmingham. Amber pour with a restrained white head. Piney hop and tropical/citrus fruit aplenty present in the nose. Further juicy citrus in the flavour alongside some sweet malts and superb hoppage. Lengthy bitter finish. Cracking balance struck here. Really fine stuff, maybe the best in this series.
