Draught. Mahogany with a thin head. Aroma is nutty malt. Flavor is burnt wood, malty with a dry bitter hop base. Not really like an English Bitter but nice to drink.

NWAF 25 Jan 13. Mørk gylden. 0 skum. Frisk fruktaroma. Plommer. Myk munnfølelse. Litt fjøs-smak. Avslutter tørt. Ikke god.

Creedence (282) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - FEB 17, 2013
Cask at Franciscan Well Winter Ale Festival. A - interesting asparagus, grass, hay. A - amber, foamy cream head. T - lots of green veg, grass, light bitter hops. P - light-medium body, lingering sourness, some slight off flavours. O - very interesting, but a little underwhelming. Will have to try it again though.

Rune (8497) - Tromsø, NORWAY - FEB 12, 2013
From cask by hand-pump at NWAF ’13, shared with Finn. Fading white, bubbly head leaving spotty lacing down the glass. Clear amber body. Smell of earthy malts, hints of caramel. Flavoured with tropical fruits, moments of spices and half-sweet malts follow by a short, bittersweet tail. Rather thin on the swallow. Acceptable (Manchester, 25.01.2013).
