Bottled. A dark golden beer with a thin beige head. The aroma has notes of malt and caramel. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt and caramel, leading to a dry and lightly bitter finish. The body is thick. Thanks Papsoe for sharing.

yngwie (13120) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUL 22, 2009
Bottle. It’s a clear, golden beer with and off-white, finger-thick head leaving some lacings. Malty, beef-stock like nose with piney and grassy hops. Sweet, malty flavor with a pleasant hoppy flavor of pinecones and grass. Full-bodied with maybe a bit too much carbonation. Nice bitterness in the finish, and a fine, sweet maltyness. There’s not much resemblance of lager beer in it, but it’s a fine one. (090520)

Oakes (12167) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 4, 2008
Deep golden colour with a thin head. Big malt nose with slight cidery notes. Intimidatingly rich dortness. Full body. Sweet malt. Creamy, pleasant pale malt development. Fairly dry in the finish, which it really needed to be. Slight toasty accents. Good.
