yngwie (12683) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAY 4, 2013
Bottle, 65cl. It’s a clear one, dark golden in color and with a dense, two-finger, light beige head leaving lacings. Malty nose with a caramel touch. Some candy and a little note of cola and spices. A bit strange, but quite nice. The flavor has the same cola and spices hint, but it’s the maltyness that plays the lead role. Caramel tending towards toffee, lightly bready, and with some fruity hints too. Full body, quite carbonated, but in a nice and suitable way. Semi-dry. A little bitterness in the finish. A beer well suited for the spring time I think, but it’s not super exiting. 130504
