yngwie (16503) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUL 16, 2016
On tap at Patrick’s. A lightly hazy one, pale golden in colour and with a dense finger thick white head leaving nice lacing. Canned tropical fruits aroma with a little malty hint. Yeast notes. It’s medium bodied, nicely carbonated and semi dry. Decent bitterness in the mouth, with the flavor mostly on the fruity side. Malty hints in the back, along with some grass. Drinks easy, offends no one. 160716

Bottle from Zach. Pale, clear yellow, with a thin, off-white head. The nose is butterscotch, a touch of resin, cloves, and corn. Sweet, with only a hint of bitterness. Light body, crisp, and clean. This is a surprisingly nice, easy blonde.
