UPDATED: DEC 23, 2012
Location: Draft at Proletariat, 12/21/12

Aroma: The nose has some spice, a little grass, yeast, and caramel malts
Appearance: It pours an unclear gold-orange, with small white head and spotty lace
Flavor: This one tastes medium sweet, with a light zesty hop bitterness on finish
Palate: The body is light-medium, it has a clean feel, soft carbonation, and lightly dry finish
Overall Impression: This one exceeded my expectations for sure. I was expecting a boring blond, but what I got was much better then that. The malts are nicely balanced by a light, but zesty hop presence that just works. This was a perfect example of a beer that a non-beer lover might order that has enough character for beer lovers to enjoy it too.

Pour is a clear gold with a white fizzy head that vanishes fast. Aroma is some grain and sweet malt. Not much there. Flavor is about the same. Some pils like malt with some minor sweet citrus fruit. Finish is watery and thin. This was kind of bland and really thin.

yngwie (14442) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - NOV 10, 2012
Bottle, 75cl. It pours an unclear, yellowish golden body and a dense, off-white head. Some floaties. The aroma could use some more punch, with orange peel, some spiced hints and a wheaty touch. It’s medium bodied, quite dry and effervescent with flavors of oranges and wheat. A little spiced touch, some licorice hints and some bitterness too. A bit ordinary, but I like the little licorice addition. 121110
