yngwie (16503) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAR 21, 2011
Cask at The Wharf. It’s a clear dark golden beer with a small, white head. Citrusy aroma, a good dash of oranges, and a grassy touch. Not much malts. The flavor is a bit dull, biscuity malts and some grassy and citrusy hops not giving much bitterness. Medium body, smooth. A boring one that doesn’t taste bad in any way. 110320
