Rune (8047) - Tromsø, NORWAY - DEC 9, 2008
Half, cask from a tall fount at a mini beer festival at Abbotsford Bar in central Edinburgh. Clear, light amber, great lacing, but missing head. Flashes of leafy hops to the nose. Dried apricot fruit in flavour with a bite of hop resin. Smooth bitterness in the aftertaste. Rather watered in the mouth, though [early in the afternoon on a rainy day in Edinburgh, 25.10.2008].
