mR_fr0g (8027) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 29, 2015
Bottle at home from Tesco. Golden orange coloured pour with a frothy fading off white head. Aroma is decent hedgerow berry hop, some esters, pale bready grains. Flavour is composed of light base grains, little grain tannin, husk, BlackBerry and apple, brambles. Palate is light thin and gassy. Not terrible.

yngwie (16309) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - DEC 27, 2015
Bottle. It’s a clear, deep golden beer with a dense, off-white head leaving some lacing. The aroma is a quite malty, bread, caramel and a touch of dried fruits, with some grass and hay. It’s medium bodied and a bit heavy on the carbonation I think, semi-dry, with a decent bitterness. Pale malts, bread, caramel and a grassy, piney touch in the flavor, and a rather short, with some tropical fruits, dried apricots, a touch of bready malts and a subtle bitterness. I wish it was more pronounced all the way, and slightly less carbonated, but it’s a decent and flawless beer I could drink a few of. 151227

the aroma is malty and, a little bit, fruity with shades of grain, grasses and berries... the taste is malty with notes of toffee, candy, apple, plum and flowers... sweet and dry aftertaste...
