Cask; Seasonal - Summer.
Brewed at Nethergate until the opening of the Trumanís brewery in Summer 2013.

With the temperature steadily rising, it is now time to unveil our latest creation Ė Summer Runner.
Rather than launch a stand-alone summer beer, as is the norm in the industry, our flagship beer, Runner , has had its recipe adapted to suit summer drinking.
One of the things we noticed when researching old Trumanís beers, was that the ingredients used in the brew would change quite a bit from month-to-month. Indeed, before the days of mechanised, temperature-controlled breweries, it was common for the taste of beer to to change throughout the year, as the ingredients and heat of the brew moved with the season. Although this was often more by accident than design, we decided to try and re-create this historical quirk and have released a new version of Runner, just for the summer. We have used more hops and lighter malts in to produce a more refreshing, crisper beer. The key factor for us is that Summer Runner will still taste like Runner Ė but a Runner designed for summer drinking. Come September, the beer will revert to its former self. Until then, those of you who desire a hit of the deeper, darker version of Runner will be able to find it in bottle.

rosenbergh (9153) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUN 21, 2011
Cask at The Oxford, London, England.
Clear amber colour with tiny white head. Mild malty aroma with some fruity bitterness. Floral bitter hoppiness in flavour. Quite strong dark bitterness. Bitterness stays in aftertaste.
