Rune (11352) - Tromsø, NORWAY - NOV 21, 2010
300ml, draught of the 2010-edition, 5.6% ABV. Deep. Ruby-red body under a filmy layer. Nice hoppy Yuletide spices to the nice. Hop-malty taste, very fine balanced flavour of bitterness and sweetness. Rounded, lingering bitter hops to the ending. Good Christmas feel in this one. Enjoyed in a very relaxing and cosy atmosphere at the brewpub early on a Saturday afternoon in Copenhagen, 13.11.2010.
