TBone (14785) - Pori, FINLAND - NOV 11, 2007
Draught@Rotterdam, Helsinki
Clear amber color, nice creamy off-white head, some lace. Hayish flowery-hoppy nose with clovers and honey. It is claimed to be American style IPA - I find it more like English as flavor has lots of fresh cut grass and clover hoppyness, nicely lingering bitterness in the aftertaste. When it warms, taste becomes ashier - propably rye starts to dominate the flavor. As far as I remember Severin IPA was similar, just a rye here makes a difference.

UPDATED: OCT 1, 2013 Keg (Kurvi, Helsinki) (6:3:8:3:14=3.4)
Creamy, hoppy but well balanced. Full in the mouth.
rerate of Keg (Kitty’s, Helsinki) (6-3-7-3-13=3.2)
Orange, thin tight head. Herby bitter nose. Resiny sticky taste, fills the mouth completely. Leaves a long resiny hoppy aftertaste. Some ginger tones to the taste.
Later rerate: Cask (Pikkulintu, Helsinki) (7:4:7:4:14=3.5)
Lovely floral aroma, a touch perfumey. Lightish in the mouth, less heavy than the keg versions. Nice brown with a frothy loose head - looks like a proper beer! Slightly floral, but very perfumey taste. Nice gentle barley malt backbone, some gentle spicyness and hints of husks. Maybe a little watery in the palate, but it comes over as being thirst quenching. No sign of 5.9%, seems more like 4.5%. Didn’t have enough to judge big volume drinkability, but the first impressions are positive.

Rune (9661) - Tromsø, NORWAY - OCT 1, 2015
100ml draught at Oluthuone Kaisla.A beige head blanketing the glass. Body colour is clear golden-brown. Inviting aroma of caramel malts and leafy hops. Caramel and resinous hoppy flavours leading to quite long-lived bitter finish. Fine bodied. A tasty one (Helsinki 27.09.2015).

UPDATED: FEB 3, 2011 Draught at Plevna, Tampere, Finland.
Dark brown colour. Bitter hoppy and fruity aroma. Same with the flavour. Rye makes it milder in bitterness but also smoother. Enjoyable.
