yngwie (14008) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 19, 2011
Bottle. A clear, dark amber body with a small, white head. Weak nose with some toasted malts and a fruity hint. Rather weak flavor too, roasted and toffee-ish, slighlty licorice like and bitter. Medium body. Short, roasted finish with some bitterness. A boring one, even for a British bitter. 110819
