yngwie (12612) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JAN 18, 2014
Bottle. It pours a clear, dark amber to brown body under a small, off-white head. The aroma has some caramel maltyness and some dried fruits, with a touch of nuts. The flavor is pretty fruity, with caramel maltyness and some nuts, dried fruits too. Medium body, quite dry on the palate, soft carbonation. Short malty finish with some caramel maltyness. Really boring this one, but it downs easily. 140118

Tasty amber ale, but nothing special. Would not seek this out back home in New England, tried it while in Vegas.

12 ounce bottle from Hayduke. We had it together via facebook chat. This pours semi clear brown and has a big beige head. It looks and smells like a brown ale. Plenty of grain and malt with a bit of chocolate. Clearly no hops in this and, despite the style, I wish there were. This is pretty much like drinking a glass of brewers grain liquid. There is a little spice that comes late. It might be rye. Somehow this is a little too slick as in a macro "dark" beer. I am not a fan.
