Corked bottle, courtesy of Jesper
Hazy blond color; quickly disappearing head. Spicy aroma; light rubber and light wheat too. Highly carbonated, with a very simplistic flavor, some malt, too much carbonation, some spices, light banana, high alcohol perception and low bitterness.
Boring.

yngwie (14146) - 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 there’s also some alcohol. Bitter towards the end. A rather disappointing one. 130430
