"This unique fusion of two styles of beer is born from the original German Altbier crossed with American red ale. Brewed from pale malt, Vienna malt, Bavarian melanoidin malt and roasted wheat, this is then flavoured with American hops using the Liberty variety for aroma. 'Fruit and malt aroma, soft malt texture with a caramel flavour. Big hop finish'."

Pint at The Clockwork pub in the South side. There seems to be quite a lot of soapiness in the taste and smell. Intentional or just bad luck?

Rune (7775) - Tromsø, NORWAY - APR 25, 2012
Half pint, cask at the brewpub. Plain brown coloured body. Tiny beige head. Aroma of red orange and malty sweetness. Spiced hops and sweet malts in flavour with hints of berries. Dry malt-bitter ending. Alright (Glasgow, 12.04.2012).

Cask-conditioned at Clockwork, Glasgow 15/06/10. Deep, reddish amber in colour with a slight, off-white head. Sweetish, fruity malt aroma with a hint of butterscotch. Flavour had more sweet malts, some spice and a moderately bitter finish. Ok.

Rastacouere (6122) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 1, 2007
Clear chestnut pour covered by a lasting off-white ring that leaves a fair amount of lacing. Caramelly, earthy nose hints at excessive sweetness to come. Dark malt profile for an alt. Very light-bodied and focused mostly on breadiness in mouth. Easily drinkable, but only spicy and thin ultimately.
