Rune (8173) - Tromsø, NORWAY - AUG 1, 2014
Cask, 4.3 % abv, hand-pulled at the brewpub. Stable white head, spotty lacing to the upper level of the glass. Clear golden body. Hop fruity aroma, hints of citrus shells. Flavour of grapefruit and lemon offset by subdued malty sweetness. Mild, dry citrus peels to the ending. Very refreshing and easy to drink. Moreish stuff (Huddersfield 09.07.2014).
