Rune (9500) - Tromsø, NORWAY - AUG 10, 2012
Half pint by hand pump at Duck & Drake. Clear golden-brown body, diminishing beige head. Smell of caramel malts and dried fruits. Fruity caramel to the taste buds, notes of red orange. Twist of dark bitter ending. Pleasant (Leeds, 12.07.2012).

Cask at Post Office Vaults, Birmingham
Hazy light amber color. The aroma is light. Some simple flavor of caramel, lightly papery and dusty. Correct bitterness. Missing any freshness or depth.
