berkshirejohn (4206) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - APR 30, 2011

yngwie (12721) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - FEB 6, 2011
Can, courtesy of fonefan. It looks nice with its clear, deep golden body and creamy off-white head. Unfortunately it’s rather tasteless and lacking on aroma. Fruits and caramel on the nose, some bitterness in the fruity, caramel flavor. Really low on bitterness. Thin on the palate, quite dry, finishing with some bitterness and metallic notes as well as caramel and fruits. As mentioned, all is weak. Drinkable indeed, utterly boring indeed. 101016

Golden, no head. Not much aroma but has a pleasant smoothness and a light small milky-bitterness that appeals.
