Pint at Number Twenty2 Darlington. Clear yellow golden colour, creamy white head leaving lots of lacing and slight malt aroma. Light caramel malt taste with some bitterness, biscuit notes, and leaves a lingering dry back of the throat bitterness. Light body, quite drinkable.

yngwie (14092) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - NOV 8, 2014
Bottle. It pours a pale golden body under a small, white head. The aroma is citrusy and piney, with a little cheesy touch. Some pale malts. It’s medium bodied and quite dry, with a pleasant carbonation level. A light malty touch in the flavor, bitter, and quite fruity. Lasting finish. Superbly boring, but easy drinkable. Sort of quenching too. 141108

Big white head. Clear pale yellow body with light coarse carbonation. Fruity strawy resiny aroma with herbal notes. Aroma is very light, but good. Dry strawy resiny taste with herbal notes. Mid-bodied. Sharpish mouthfeel. Dry, salty grape and resin aftertaste with dusty strawy notes. Nice, drinkable, perhaps a little low on flavour. (0.5l bottle, from Meny Oslo City.)
