On tap at Market Porter. Hazy amber beer, residual white head. Light palate, semi dry. Tangy minerally hops - a little orange and tea! Semi dry finish. Skewed and very dissapointing - wish I had re-tried this at Craft Beer.

yngwie (13563) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - FEB 28, 2014
Bottle. It’s a hazy, golden-orange beer topped by a creamy off-white head. The aroma is mostly on the orangey, citrusy side, with a little malty touch. Quite bitter on the palate, with oranges and pine cones. Full to medium body, semi-dry and with a nice carbonation level. Lasting bitter finish with oranges. Straight forward and far from complex, but easy drinkable and quenching. 140228
