COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask & Bottle Conditioned; Regular.

A hoppy amber ale, brewed with a complex mash of Marris Otter pale malt, Rye, Caramalt and Wheat.
A shed-load of American hops provide a delightful marmalade / citrus bitterness, well balanced by the sweetness of the malt, whilst delivering a charcteristic peppery Rye flavour.

yngwie (13194) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUN 14, 2013
Bottle. A finger-thick white head forms over a semi-clear golden body. Lacings. The aroma is fruity, with peaches and pineapple, some malty notes in the back. Quite simple, but pleasant. Supersmooth and soft on the palate, a bit thin, with pleasant carbonation. Quite nice bitterness in the flavor, with tropical fruits and a generic fruityness. Some malty sweetness in the back A nice one, but way too soft on the palate actually. Drinks easily though. 130614
