yngwie (14008) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - SEP 18, 2011
On tap at Ølfestival 2011. As Op & Top Sorachi Ace. An unclear, golden beer topped by a big, creamy, off-white head. Peaches and lemon on the nose, I’d wish it being more pronounced. Peaches, lemon and malty sweetness on the flavor, lacking on bitterness in all phases. Medium to full body, smooth and dryish. A nice beer, sort of quenching, but I prefer the Amarillo dry hopped edition. Rating: 6-4-6-4-13-3.3. 110526
