yngwie (14442) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAR 19, 2011
Bottle, courtesy of fonefan. A clear, golden beer with an off-white head of moderate size. Citrusy nose with grapefruit peel and a faint note of malts. Nice bitterness in the flavor, lots of citrus peel and with some pale malts as a base. Medium body, dry. Lasting citrus peel bitterness in the end. Overall, a quite nice and easy drinking beer, although I suspect it would be challenging to drink a few of it. 110319
