yngwie (15381) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - OCT 18, 2014
Bottle. An almost clear one, golden in color and with a small, white head. The aroma is quite butterscotchy, with a fruity touch and some cheesy notes. Pale malts in the back. It’s medium to full-bodied with a soft and pleasant carbonation level. Some diacetyl in the flavor too, with the fruity, piney hops dominating. Pale malts and a decent bitterness in the flavor, leading to a lasting finish. Medium to full body and a soft carbonation level. Fortunately most of the diacetyl disappears quickly, still it’s not a very good one. 141018
