nudiebear (91) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 17, 2014
Bottle. Poured a clear rust brown with no head. Sniffing it rewarded me with Syrup and zesty notes. And white bread. Tasted sweet and reminiscent of caramel. OK

yngwie (13350) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 15, 2014
Bottle. A lightly unclear dark golden beer topped by a small, white head. The aroma is lightly oxidzed, with caramel, some dried fruits and peaches. It’s medium to full-bodied with a soft carbonation. Caramel, oxidation, dried fruits and some herbal bitterness. Some generic fruityness too, lasting for a while. Pretty nice this one, but nothing extraordinary going on. 140815
