yngwie (14008) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 4, 2013
On tap at Toronado. A finger-thick off-white head sites in top of an amber body, nice curtains. The aroma is light and easy, with some fruits and some bread. There’s a pleasant and subtle bitterness in the flavor, dealing with the light malty sweetness. Some bread. Caramel hints too. Medium body, very soft. Lasting bitter finish. Certainly a nice one, maybe deserving a higher rating. 130804

brokensail (11529) - Orange County, California, USA - JUN 27, 2011
A: The beer pours an amber in color with a nice tall, creamy, white head. S: Probably a bit more hoppy than the typical English ESB, but I like that. Nice foral hops with a light citrus character. Plenty of bready malts with a heavy toast character. T: Starts off with a lot of bready malts and a light toast. A moderate bitterness to the beer which helps to break up the somewhat sweet nature of the malts. Floral hops and a touch of citrus also assist in that. M: Medium in body with a smooth, slightly creamy mouthfeel. O: Really a nice beer. One of the better Moonlight offerings and one I wanted to have after a long break from Moonlight beers.

Cask at the Toronado. Very fruity/citrusy aroma. Dark mahogany color with a decent off-white head. Medium bodied with mild, creamy carbonation. It’s a bit of roasted malt, but mostly citrus and floral hop. Very smooth. Finishes nicely bitter. Very good and flavorful.
