Rune (11372) - Tromsø, NORWAY - MAR 4, 2011
330ml bottle that Finn had bought somewhere in Swedish Lapland for mutual enjoyment back home in Tromsø. Loose-white, head. Clear, straw-golden. Mostly pale malts to the nose added by hints of hay. Dry taste of corn and fruity sweetness. Weak bitter endnotes. Mediocre beer and very limited enjoyment (session with Finn, 02.03.2011).
