Taste of toffee, biscuity malt, fruitcake, some spice, slight apple, a little treacle, a hint of alcohol and subtle earthy hops. Medium bodied and soft carbonation.

Pint pour from cask into mug in London. Deep amber, supper creamy. Great body. Light malty taste, not too much carbonation. A nice beer to warm up on on a cold winter’s night.

yngwie (17234) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAR 1, 2015
Cask at the Wharf. A clear copper colored beer with some off-white bubbles on top. Dark dried fruits, some toffee and pine cones in the aroma, as well as a hint of fruit caramel. It’s quite dry on the palate, but feeling lightly sweetish. Toffee, dark dried fruits and a decent bitterness. Pine cones too. Alcohol hints. Very soft carbonation. Lasting finish with a nice balance. Pretty nice this one. 150301
