yngwie (16377) - 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

Dogbrick (11021) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - NOV 18, 2012
On draught at the end of the Smithwick’s tour. The beer is a clear golden color with a thin fluffy white head that evaporates steadily. Top ring of lacing with spots underneath. Aroma of grassy hops and malt. Light-bodied with a mildly bitter herbal hops character and malt in the background. The finish is short with a light hops aftertaste. Slightly above average overall.

Dollar can. Pour looks like soda in the glass... The smell is whatever, light malt an hops. Flavor is weird, almost minty and grapey, not sure how the fuck they got this flavor. Some DMS and corn husk. It blows.
