Bottle. Cloudy blonde super carbonated with a massive foamy head. Aroma is musty/earthy, spice, malt and herbs. Flavor is old musty and dusty malt with some faint hop bitterness. Probably an old bottle, not so good.

floral hops, some lemon/citrus, lacks malts... very sweet, but the finish is nicely bitter... dont really like it, the flowery stuff annoys me... but its light bodied, leaves something warm and quite drinkable

Had two, drank them at home out of a wine glass and an oversized wineglass. Had the first one real cold, at 5 degrees, the second one more around 10. Faint aroma, definitely a touch of citrus present, which I only noticed after I switched to a truly oversized wineglass Pale to golden color, slightly hazy with a minimal head. Appearance wise all is good. Head disappears rather quickly. Bit of a poor palate, with a promising sweet first glimpse (personal taste), which disappears abruptly, leaving only a slightly bitter aftertaste, with a subtle alcohol flavour. Overall, an easy drinking, terrassy/sunny - lazy-afternoon-beer, nothing too sophisticated. I like this type of beer, if served on the right occasion.

yngwie (16503) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - APR 30, 2013
Bottle. It pours a diminishing white head of moderate size over a clear, golden body. Rather boring aroma, fruity and sugary, with some cellar hints. Dry and quite thin on the palate, with some alcohol warmth, soft carbonation. The flavor is sugary and fruity, a faint spiced hint chimes in, and theres also some alcohol. Bitter towards the end. A rather disappointing one. 130430
