yngwie (16768) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 13, 2010
Bottle. A copper-colored beer, clear, with a small, off-white head leaving some lacings. Fruity nose with toffee notes and a little cheesy hint. Fruity flavor, some lemony citrus, pale malts and a little toffee. Biscuity notes as well. Medium body. Bitter finish, but not very bitter, I would like it more bitter. A quenching one, but rather uninteresting. 100813
