oh6gdx (24577) - Vasa, FINLAND - OCT 29, 2013
Bottled@SBWF2013. Golden colour, small white head. Aroma is fruity, floral, caramelly and a bunch of citrus to it as well. Flavour is fruity, mild rice as well as some strange sweetness. Pleasantly balanced, but would probably suit a food table better than being drunk on it’s own.

yngwie (16376) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - APR 30, 2014
Bottle. A hazy golden beer with a dense finger thick off-white head leaving curtains. Rather meaty aroma, with banana, cloves, caramel, some alcohol and a piney touch. Full body and a pleasant carbonation level. Sort of warming, which surprises me considering the alcohol level. Meaty flavor too, with the same banana, cloves, caramel and piney cones found in the aroma. Lasting finish. Well, it’s not bad in any way, but it’s too meaty for me. 140430
