yngwie (13191) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 4, 2006
Bottled. Deep golden, clear bitter with a white head. Weak, malty, slightly roasted and sweet aroma, with caramel, malt and hops in the flavor. Too low on the hops. The body is rather thin, and the bitterness in the finish didn’t suit my taste. (060720)

imdownthepub (9999) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 10, 2006
Bottled, filtered, 500ml. Amber colour with white head. Quite an accomplished beer for a low ABV bottled Ale. Malty smooth with a gentle biscuit aroma from mid roasted malt. Enough hop for interest giving a slight bittersweet finish. Quite enjoyable. From Booths, Ulverston, Cumbria.
