yngwie (13575) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 30, 2014
Bottle. An unclear, dark orange-golden beer topped by a dense, off-white head of moderate size. Some floaties. Fruity, oaked aroma with some yeast and sugary malts. Alcohol too. It’s fruity sweet and sugar on the palate, with alcohol warmth, bitterness and some oaked hints. Full body and a pleasant carbonation level. Lasting finish with bitterness, white sugar, fruityness and alcohol. Too alcoholic this one, else it’s quite decent. 140830
