yngwie (14146) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAY 31, 2009
Bottle, shared by Papsoe. It pours a clear, dark golden body under a small, off-white head. Malty nose with some hops in the background and a little cellar as well. Cellarish, malty flavor with some fruity hops producing a little bitterness. Rather malty finish too, with a decent bitterness. Dry, medium body. A decent beer, but rather uninteresting except as a session-beer. (090514)
