Rune (7943) - Tromsø, - SEP 25, 2012
200ml draught at Pingvinen. Brown-reddish body colour. Tiny layer with a few patches. Modest malt-fruity smell. Brown malts and mid-dried fruits creating a jam-like flavour. Refreshing malt-bitter ending. Quite well bodied. Has definitely got its moments of joyful beer drinking (Bergen, 17.09.2012).

My Bottom Line:
Caramelized cereal sugars and their light toastiness surprise the taster into looking at the label one more time...

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A ring of foam circles the shiny dark amber russet(?!). I thought I had bought a Pilsener...
-This could be a good Vienna or Amber Ale, but a Pilsener? Come on...
-This remains very drinkable.
-Mouthfeel is lean and the bubbling soft.

Finn (4134) - Tromsø, NORWAY - MAY 27, 2014
Flaske 0,33l. Gave fra Rune. Mørk gyldenbrun. Høyt luftig skum som varer. Litt lacing. Skyet. Forsiktig fruktig aroma. Smaken litt tung - men et klart maltpreg. Uvariert. “Pils” var litt misvisende.
