Cask. Pours chestnut, thin white top. Aroma roasted malt. Taste has malts to the fore with bread and biscuit but some fruit at the end. Smooth and medium bodied. Not a beer to remember Christmas by.

Rune (11372) - Tromsø, NORWAY - MAR 4, 2013
Cask ale, half pint, shared with Finn at Rook and Gaskill. Deep mahogany coloured body. Lasting beige layer. Smell of earthy malts, semi-sweet. Dark caramel taste added by notes of nuts and honey leading to a malt bitter finish. A bit floury in the mouth. A malty beer that fits the winter season quite well (York, 26.01.2013).
