yngwie (14146) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUN 1, 2009
Bottle, shared by Papsoe. A hazy, orange-yellow-golden beer with a small, white head. Grainy, fruity and hoppy nose, a bit weaker than I would prefer. Grainy flavor with a nice fruityness, finishing rather fruity. Medium body, dry. I guess the hoppy impression in the aroma is due to something else, don’t know what. Overall, the beer is a bit on the grainy side, with the gruit left in the background. (090514)

TBone (12999) - Pori, FINLAND - APR 25, 2012
Bottled 330ml (Drink Shop, BB 06/2013)
Clear golden color (when yeast added hazy), good white head, lace. When poured, grassy, a bit skunky hoppyness. then grassy, slightly spicey aroma. Light to medium bodied. Sweetish fruity front (peach) then grassy flavors although bitterness is low. With all yeast added perhaps a bit spicier with oily palate. Quite standard well-brewed blond.
