Nothing special as a bitter beer but is easy to enjoy the fruity and soft aroma.

yngwie (12721) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - APR 22, 2011
Cask at the Wharf. A clear, amber beer with a small, off-white head. Rather weak aroma, with a maltyness in the back. The palate is smooth and medium bodied, with a nice bitterness. Nuttyness and some caramel, as well as citrusy, slightly grassy hops. Lasting bitterness. A quite decent one, but I can’t really see myself drinking it all night long. 110417
