yngwie (14146) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUL 19, 2009
Bottle. It pours a hazy, golden-orange body under a minimal sized off-white head. Resiny, grassy nose with a nice maltyness, hints of beef-stock as well. The flavor has a little peach added to the grassy, resiny hops, and the sweet malts makes a nice foundation. Medium to full body with pleasant carbonation. A bit low on bitterness in the finish. Quite quenching and drinkable, without being big at all. (090520)

Bottle. Sweet aroma, weakly caramelly. Slightly hazy amber colour. Very small white head. The flavour is OK caramelly with a little sweetness and spicy hoppiness.

Free sample on draft at Atlanta airport. This one did not have much body, and the flavor and aroma were pretty mediocre as well.
