Hazy amber beer, small cream colour head. Fruity nose, lightly sour. Palate is light, semi dry and minerally crisp. Light brett. Moderately sour generic fruits, cherry and orange identifiable. Crisp finish. Not sure if the end result was what the brewer intended, but it’s all right.

yngwie (16535) - 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
