yngwie (15605) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - FEB 22, 2013
Bottle. It pours an almost clear body, golden in color and with a small, off-white head. Quite a lot of butterscotch in the aroma, almost hiding the fruityness. Not very pleasant. The same goes for the flavor. One gets used to the butterscotch, but it’s still a bit unpleasant. Fruity too. Full body, pleasant carbonation. Butterscotch and fruityness in the finish. Not my kind of beer. 130222

Bottle at home in London - sourced from an online shop. Pours mostly clear gold with a creamy white head. The nosr has some aged hay, biscuits, lemon. Light-medium sweet flavor with low bitterness, some ripe, lightly dried citrus fruits, a bit of hay, grains. Light bodied with ine to average carbonation. Some further grainy pale malts to finish, biscuits, rindy lemon. Perhaps not super fresh but still OK.
