yngwie (16523) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUL 11, 2010
Bottle. It’s a clear, chestnut-colored beer topped by a small, off-white head. Cute. Malty nose with dried fruits, hints of chocolate, and a pleasant roasted scent. It’s malty and bready in the mouth, full-bodied and roasted with a hint of chocolate. Appropriate bitterness in the end. An easy drinkable beer, medicore in a way, but tasteful enough to be worth a revisit. 100326
