Pours a two finger cream head that fades slowly to a thin layer leaving a good lace. Slightly hazy amber color. Good carbonation and medium bodied. Nose is earthy and flavor is almost tart pear and earthy. $11.40 for a 750ml bottle from Tully’s Beer & Wine Wells, Me.

yngwie (13345) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - APR 7, 2012
Bottle, 75cl. A clear, dark amber colored beer topped by a dense, light beige head of finger-thick size. Fruity and candy-ish aroma with some notes of toffee. Sweet and fruity flavor with some bitterness and a faint caramel touch. Warming, full-bodied and nicely carbonated. A decent beer, not very Christmas-ish in my book, and lacking on complexity. 110826
