ABT_S54 (145) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - AUG 23, 2014
Served on tap in a pint glass. Pours a reddish flat liquid with a quickly disappearing bubbly head. Mouthfeel is so watery and taste is just too subdued. Not really a redeemable point however, it appeared to be the best on offer at the time.

yngwie (13351) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 16, 2014
Bottle. An almost clear one, dark golden to copper in color and with a small, dense, beige head on top. Toffee-ish malts, grassy and piney hops and some cheesy hints in the aroma. The flavor has the same toffee-ish malts,with some faint bready hints. Grass, pine cones and some bitterness in the flavor. Full to medium body and a pleasant soft carbonation level. It finishes more or less as the initial flavor, but more on the bitter side. Quite decent, but far from worth a celebration. 140816
