COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
An amber English-style ale that has a nice balance between hops and malt. It's the most popular of our beers and the most versatile in terms of pairing with food or people.

Sweet, swampy taste like autumn leaves with old fashioned candy with toast and acorns. Not great, but points for being different than I expected. Like the whale?s tale logo. Kind of curious about the calligraphy on the upper label, whether its just artistic or Hebrew letters or something. Not a bad beer, but they could probably do more with this brand. A little closer to an amber ale or a red ale than a pale ale.

Brown and bubbly. Malty and a bit bitter. Clean and dry finish. Nice brew to try out. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Aroma sweet, bready, like caramel and sugarcane. After an initial bite of carbonation, sweet malt flavors kick in with a pleasantly bitter mild hop finish. Relatively low alcohol content makes this a good post-dinner sessioner.

12 oz bottle. Pretty good pale. Has a crisp finish but no much for hops. I would have again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

One of my favorite pale ales that I always have a few in my fridge. Visited the brewery in Nantucket and had a blast.

Rune (8205) - Tromsø, NORWAY - OCT 31, 2013
A ¾ pint bottle carried back home from bottle bar (Biers Sans Frontiers), GBBF 13. Bright and clear amber coloured body. Creamy, off-white head that laces well. Smell of bread, herbal hops and dried fruits. Mixed flavours of red orange and caramel malts followed by a resin-like, bitter ending. Satisfying bittersweet tail. Soft and dry on the swallow. Just alright (shared with Finn H at his place in Tromsø 30.10.2013).

Bright clear amber beer with a small pale cream coloured head. Light minerally crisp palate. Light toffee malt, little dried fruits. Crispy minerally finish. Dull! Meh!

A sweet molasses aroma, like an okto. The flavor is also sweetish. Definitely of the English variety, as it’s more molasses than hops.

Pours a dark amber color with a slightly cloudy body. Didn’t have much of an aroma other than an indistinct sweet smell, which I guess was some kind of bread or biscuit malt. Flavor has that sweet bread taste combined with a mild hop bitterness. Another okay beer from the okay Cisco brewers

Love the simple label. Especially the 3/4 pint notation. Pours a very clear and dark orange color. Aroma is more British pale for sure so kudos to brewing to style. Taste is primarily cereal malt with a small dose of hops. Does taste a bit watery which is odd for a 5.6% beer.
