yngwie (15759) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAR 18, 2011
Bottle, courtesy of fonefan. It’s a clear, dark golden beer with a minimal sized white head. The aroma reminds me more of an English regular bitter than of an IPA, but what to expect at 3.8 % ABV. Biscuity malts, pine cones, grass and a fruity touch in the aroma. The body is a bit thin, but not thin, and the carbonation level is appropriate. Nice bitterness in the flavor, with fruityness and pine cones, and some pale malts in the back. Bitterness in the end. Decent. 110318

Dull amber. The aroma is bland, caramelly. Soft body. Light toast, maybe a bit burnt with bland caramel. Nothing special, to say the least.

Scopey (10026) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 5, 2013
Cask at Glasgow Airport Spoons. It pours golden yellow with a medium white head. The nose is earth, faint farmyard, dough and flour. The taste is dough, grain, spice, citrus pith and some decent bitterness with a dry, lightly earthy finish. Medium body and fine carbonation. A decent, drinkable golden ale.
