Koelschtrinker (19432) - Kln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAY 25, 2011
Weich malziger Antrunk mit angenehmer aber leicht verwsserter Schokoladennote. Etwas fruchtig-kruterartig im Mittelteil, das Mlz ist hier weiter das intensivste Aroma, leidet aber strker als zuvor an der Wssrigkeit. Der Trend zur Wssrigkeit setzt sich auch im Abgang fort und bringt das Bier sprbar durcheinander, zum Ende wirkt es sehr schwach, da scheint die starke Rstigkeit fast schon unpassend. Ein noch unausgereiftes Bier. 7/9/6/7/7/6

Bottle, bought @ Dansk Mjd, Billund.
Pale dark golden with no real head. Aroma has mild sweet caramel, sugar, mild tartness. Low carbonation, thin and watery. Complete mess in flavour, lots of citric acid, light vinegar. Horrible.

yngwie (16879) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 29, 2008
Bottle. A murky brown beer with a small and diminishing beige head. Dried fruits, some fresh fruits, a faint acidic note and caramel sweetness in the aroma. The flavor is acidic and sugary-sweet, with caramel, some roasted malt and a little bitterness. Medium body, slighlty sticky, effervescent and a bit warming. Alcohol, sweetness, some dried fruits and bitterness in the finish. Probably a decent beer when fresh, but now it’s definately on it’s way to go bad. And there’s several months left of the BB-date.
