Bottled@omhpertasting (thanks hanniku!). Golden colour, smal white head. Aroma is bready malts, some mild fruits, grass as well as hay. Flavour is rather similar. Clean, but very boring.

yngwie (13106) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 19, 2011
Bottle. It pours a clear, golden body and a small, white head. A clear, golden beer with a decent off-white head. Rather weak aroma with pale malts, hay, grass and a touch of wet cardboard. Flavorwise itís much the same, itís quite dry on the palate, and hard on the carbonation, quite quenching, but as itís not very good, Iíll rather drink something else. 110819

TBone (12323) - Pori, FINLAND - APR 13, 2011
Bottled 330ml (K-Kamppi, ABV 4.7%, BB 10/2011)
Golden clear color, medium-sized white head. Nose starts with hayish, cannabis like aroma, then metal, cardboard and sweetish maltyness. Light to medium bodied. Very expected flavor: harsh, a bit fruity maltyness with strong metallic presence, low bitterness. Similar to Chinese or some Indian lagers. Ice cold I could use this with Nepalese food, otherwise totally useless.
