Cask, Occasional;
A strong, well-hopped ale. Powerful golden coloured beer with a fruity, citrus nose and flavour. A veritable Hop Bomb, with over a kilo of hops per brewers barrel, it avoids being too bitter with a skillful blend of American hops, making this a beer to be reckoned with. Handle with caution. Silver Medals at Reading Beer Festival 2007 and Peterborough Beer Festival 2006, as well as at SIBA SE Competition 2008 & 2009.

Rune (9504) - Tromsø, NORWAY - SEP 4, 2011
Evening session at GBBF ’11 while listen to The Chris Jagger Band at the main stage. One-third pint, hand pulled cask, at The Nightingale Bar. Crystal clear amber, shiny surface. Citrus fruits to the nose. Bitter hoppy fruits in flavour that lingers for quite a while. Sweet malty backbone, however, mostly bitter throughout. Medium bodied. Above par for the British ales at the festival (London, 03.08.2011).
