Rune (10928) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JUL 21, 2010
Just a bit of haze to a light golden body. No head, but spotty lacework on the glassware. Fresh smell of fruity hops. Malt-fruity taste developing towards notes of leafy and oily hops. Bitter endnotes. Well bodied compared to the low alcohol strength. Cask, half pint enjoyed at the classic English pub called Duck and Drake in Leeds, 11.07.2010.
