yngwie (16529) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 27, 2008
Bottle, thx to Tarjei. (as Liverpool 2008 lager) A clear, golden beer with a small white head. The aroma has a malty background, with nice fruity hops up front, and with a grainy touch. Malty flavor too, with nice fruity and grassy hops. A bit grainy though, and a little low on bitterness, but what can one expect from a pale lager. Medium body, quite dry. Bitter finish with some grain and fruityness. Refreshing and quite uninteresting beer. Sure acceptable for a pale lager though. (080731)
