yngwie (13407) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - APR 24, 2007
Bottled. Clear, golden, with an off-white head. Quite malty nose, with caramel and some nice hops and some apricot. A bit grainy maltyness in the mouth, with some caramel and citrusy hops. Medium body and a nice, balanced finish. A bit on the citrus-hoppy side. A nice, modern English bitter. (070413)
