djoeye (4409) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JAN 28, 2017
Aroma; mild hops, caramel, lemongrass, bread notes, fresh n inviting. Look; off white dense head, amber clear body, curtain lacing. Taste; caramel malts, grassy hops, lemon perfumed grain - balanced lemongrassy finish. Feel; fresh, ok, dry spots. Overall; a tad too perfumed, but tasty though. [5.5%abv Tap@Ølhallen]

On tap at Grünerløkka Brygghus. Amber with white head. Bitter and sweet. Lemon with some grapefruit flavour. Medium body with medium to low carbonation. Refreshing, but the heavy lemon flavour feels overwhelming and almost artificial.

yngwie (16889) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAY 27, 2014
On tap at the brewpub. An unclear, dark golden beer with a dense, white fingerthick head. The aroma has lots of Fox fruit caramel, really lots of it, with hints of pale malts. The same goes for the flavor, the Fox is all over, more or less hiding everything else, both malts and bitterness. That goes for the finish too. Full to medium body and a nice carbonation level. Well, this is too much of a good thing. Way too much. 140501
