At Beer Mania, Bruxelles
Hazy amber color, beautiful; creamy head. The aroma, light, has some malt, and a grainy touch. The body is medium, with average caramel flavor, not sweet or round enough, but quite smooth, with a strange herbal touch (oregano or thyme) that is not as bad as in other beers; low bitterness. Balanced herbal beer, not too complex but enjoyable.

yngwie (14773) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - APR 9, 2012
Bottle. Almost clear, golden in color and topped by a finger thick off-white head. It’s lightly funky on the nose, lemony, with hints of maltyness, as well as canned peaches and some orange peel. Canned peaches, generic fruityness and sugar in the flavor, lacking on bitterness in all phases. Medium body, a bit low on carbonation. Well, I gave it 3.1, but I’m not sure it deserves that high a score. 110916
