yngwie (14146) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAR 30, 2012
Bottle, thx sis. It pours more or less clear, light amber in color and topped by a dense, light beige head of moderate size. Some lacings. Sort of metallic nose with a light caramel touch, as well as malts and fruityness. Quite boring. The same goes for the flavor, it’s not bad, just boring. A pleasant bitterness makes up for some of the boredom, but it’s still a beer I certainly won’t do anything to find again. 120330
