Nut brown, a bit hazy, small tanned creamy head. Strong rye-malty nose. Rye and malt also dominate the flavor. A bit sour. Märzen-like brew.
330ml bottle (Drink Shop, Tallinn)yngwie (17284) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAY 23, 2008
Mashy aroma, a touch of banana. Deep orange, tight persistent head. Nasty papery taste. In the finish too. Not refreshing - give me a nordic pale lager rather than this.
Bottle, 75cl corked. An amber to copper colored beer with a medium-sized off-white head. Malty, caramel aroma, slightly cellarish, and with some toffee. The cellar note is present in the flavor too, but that’s probably due to the bottle being 28 months past BB-date, and it just added a nice touch to the beer. There’s also caramel sweetness, toffee, some butterscotch and a little fruit in the flavor. Medium mouthfeel. I don’t think the cellaring of this beer hurt much, it’s still quite tasteful after more than two years past BB-date. (080411)
