yngwie (13693) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - NOV 29, 2008
On tap at the European Beer Festival, Copenhagen. A quite dark golden beer with a small off-white head. Floral nose with a citrusy touch on a malty back. Lightly toasty start on the flavor with citrusy hops coming stronger and ending up in a fruity finish with a decent bitterness. Yet another easy to drink beer from Ocean. (080912)
