Draught at Bishop’s Arms Vasagatan, Stockholm. Clear deep golden, small head. Fruity nose with slight cardboard. Sweetish with clea mouthfeel and light-medium body. Some sweaty ripe fruits, salty mid bitter finish. Just another half lifeless English keg ale.

harrisoni (16583) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JUN 6, 2008
500ml bottle from Sainsbury. Gold with thin off white head. Faintly dusty, citrus, nettle aroma. Quite hard in mouth. Decent condition, at least its not pasteurised. Not a lot of sediment. Good hop on end, bit sherberty, lemon/lime. Ultimately not bad. Still a bit fizzy.

yngwie (16227) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 30, 2008
Bottle, thx to fonefan. A hazy, yellow-golden beer with an off-white head. Grassy, chalky nose with pale malt. Pale malt, grass, chalky notes and some bitterness in the flavor. Lacks on the citrusy hoppy aromas and flavors normally found in golden ales. Thin, dusty mouthfeel. Short malty finish with caramel and some hops. A decent but boring beer. (080822)
