Rune (7775) - Tromsø, NORWAY - SEP 16, 2009
Nice appearance with its shiny clear, copper coloured body. While the aroma has got a fresh smell of floral hops, the flavour profile is more in the direction of leafy hops. Dry bitter finish. An average version of the style with a strong session potentiality. Sample, gravity cask (GBBF, 07.08.2009).
