yngwie (14935) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - APR 16, 2011
Bottle, courtesy of saxo. A clear, amber colored beer with a small, white head. Bready, wort-like malts with a pleasant fruityness. It’s quite thin on the palate, dry, and with flavors of bread and fruityness. Lacks on bitterness all the way. An easy drinking super boring beer, I think I’ll rather pass on the beer drinking than having beers like this. 110416

vinter (3) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUL 20, 2010 does not count
An ale like /so/ many others, but with its relatively low alcohol content it does no harm. Red appearance and slightly thin taste.
