Theydon_Bois (7935) - The íSham, Surrey, ENGLAND - JUN 19, 2014
Cask at CBC Holborn, 18/06/14. Clear light golden with a moderate off white covering that retains. Nose is citric sherbets, light floral, mineral hint, orange pith. Taste comprises bitter orange, straw, mandarin, hint of bread dough, pale maltings. Medium to light body, a little on the thin side, very faint hop presence in the close. So so, it felt a little washed out and didnít offer too much.

yngwie (13191) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - FEB 16, 2013
Bottle. Itís a cloudy one, orange-golden in color and with a small, off-white head. The aroma is fruity and lightly resiny, with some pale malts and a faint note of something chalky. The flavor is quite fruity and almost syrupy, with a nice bitterness. Itís lightly sourish, in a nice way, with bitterness towards the end. A decent one, but I find it a tad boring. Drinks easily though. 130216
