yngwie (13106) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 4, 2012
Bottle. A clear, golden beer with a huge, dense, white head. Citrusy nose with some maltyness underneath. Lightly brettish too, some barnyard hints. Pleasant on the palate, although a bit heavy on the carbonation. Medium body. Pleasant citrusy flavor with some hints of brett. A nice bitterness chimes in towards the end. A pleasant one indeed, tasteful, easy drinkable and quenching. A bit uncertain if the brett hints is inteded, or if it really is brett, but it was certainly nice. 120804
