yngwie (14008) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - DEC 19, 2012
Bottle, 75cl corked. Its a more or less clear one, dark golden in color and with a dense, two-finger off-white head. Sugary, caramel-ish aroma with a generic fruityness and some spiced notes. Cinnamo and cloves it seems. The flavor has a touch of something cellar like, with caramel, spice notes, white sugar and a fruityness. Medium body, a bit effervescent. Lasting sugary and caramel finish with a touch of spices. A quite decent beer, but rather boring, especially as a Christmas beer. 121219

argo0 (11635) - Washington DC, USA - MAR 6, 2003
Clear orange body (though it becomes cloudy at the end of the pour) with small white head. Aroma is sweet -- orange and butterscotch. Taste is moderately sweet, mostly orange. Also some yeast and spice, and a hint of alcohol. Beer is much improved in the second pour -- most of the flavor seems to have sunk to the bottom of the bottle.

Bottle. Pours orange gold with a great frothy white head. Smells of citrus and vanilla. Medium body with foamy carbonation. Flavors are fairly mild. Citrus, light malt, maybe some clove. Its a good beer, just hard to pin down. Ends on the bitter side.
