Hazy deep blond color; eggwhite head. The aroma is almost absent. The body is quite strong, poor malt flavor, corn; strong bitterness, the final is a bit oily. Useless.

Dickinsonbeer (5074) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - FEB 1, 2010
Mondiale 08. Pours a bland pale gold with a fizzy soda like head to nothing. Aroma is straight up DMS and acetaldehyde and raw uncooked malt extract- honey and too sweet- corny. Flavor is grassy, thick syrupy sweet malts, rice, liquid malt extract twang, corn grits, DMS and green apple skin which just made me feel like I was getting a headache as I drank this swill- gross.

750ml bottle found at Auchan in La Defense. Pours yellow-gold with soapy head, aroma of syrup and malts. Taste is a still-too-sweet mix of malt and caramel, slight leather notes as well. A little on the undeveloped side.

yngwie (16882) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - OCT 29, 2009
Bottle, 75cl corked, courtesy of MiP. It is an almost clear golden beer with a small off-white head. Sweet, caramel flavor with some fruits and alcohol. Theres some fruityness in the mouth too, a fine bitterness, and sweet caramel. Medium body, nicely carbonated. Rather short finish that is more warming than necessary. A quite decent one, dangerously easy drinkable for a beer like this. A bit on the malty side, meaning it lacks on hops. 090821

Maria (10213) - Thisted, DENMARK - SEP 3, 2009
The color is yellow-golden and the head is white. The aroma has notes of malt, fruit and a little sweetness. The flavor has sweetness and notes of malt, fruit and light citrus in the dryish finish. Not very complex.
