yngwie (14146) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - APR 15, 2011
Bottle, courtesy of fonefan. A clear, dark amber beer with a small, beige to off-white head. Toffee-ish, biscuity and roasted with a fruity touch on the aroma. The flavor is much the same, a nice bitterness added. Quite dry, full-bodied and smooth. Pleasant bitterness in the end. A quite drinkable one, maybe a bit dry actually, but itís quenching and tasteful. 110415

harrisoni (14126) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - FEB 11, 2008
Cask gravity at Battersea BF 08. Chestnut with lasting beige head. Looks in good nick. Thatís alright. Itís a best bitter, decent berry fruit. Itís actually pretty good considering the 4 beers that went before. Mind you I did get bored with the English beers after this one and went onto the Germans.
