yngwie (14008) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUN 27, 2010
Bottle. A clear, deep golden beer topped by a small beige head. Sweetish nose mostly reminiscent of a bag of old fashion candy. Sweetish flavor, candy like, with some hops giving a little bitterness towards the finish. Medium body, quite dry even though the flavor is sweet. Some notes of alcohol warmth too. A decent beer, but too candy-like for me. 100115

Bottle brown, 500 ml, 14 P, non-pasteurized.
Appearance: Pours beautiful, roasted orangy golden to amber, really impressive and crystal clear body in texture, carbonation of the body is quite vivid and natural, head is slightly off-white, initially medium, slowly decreasing to small, foamy to frothy in texture, leaving gentle traces of lacing.
Aroma: Really nice typical aroma od Marzen perfectly fitting its style and that is what I admire most, nice toasted charcater of sweet barley malt background, hoppy profile is pepery, papery, spicy herbal, again distinct notes of toasted selected barley malt, gentle alcoholic background contributing to the nice beer character, all the best you can expect from the Oktoberfest/Marzen style.
Flavour: Nicely toasted character of barley malt, very well spiced up body due to the spicy-herbal noble hop character, very clean display of barley grains and chalk on palate, no sugar, very nice flavour remindinh me some of the best Polish slightly roasted in their malted barley profile European Strong Lagers, though the seasonal malt makes it really extraordinary. Finish duration is moderate to long.
Palate: Body is medium, texture is rather dry to wattery, carbonation on palate is moderate, finish feel is gently astringent, aromatic hoppy in nose, grainy toasty on palate.
