yngwie (16375) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - APR 6, 2007
Cask at the Wharf, Aalborg. Clear, golden ale with a small white head. Weak malty aroma with some hops, but there’s also a papery note. Malty start in the mouth, but then there’s some paper and a weak hoppiness. Thin to medium body. A boring session-style beer. (070331)
