yngwie (14344) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - OCT 26, 2014
Bottle, at John Bull, Aalborg. A hazy orange-golden beer with a small white head. The aroma is a bit weak, citrusy and peachy, with some pale malts. It’s medium bodied and quite soft on the palate, with a suitable bitterness and citrus and pine cones. Malty back. Lasting bitter finish. Easy drinkable, easy forgettable. 141026

imdownthepub (10770) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 24, 2014
Keg at The Dean Swift, Tower Bridge, London. Hazy gold with white head. This proved to be a pleasant, crisp, lightly hoppy beer, there is a fruitiness from the hops, skinny apricot with a citric edge. The malty body itself is unassuming if slightly biscuity. A pretty decent kegged beer.
