Rune (8587) - Tromsř, - OCT 3, 2012
500ml bottle picked up at Centra Colosseum in Oslo and shared with Finn back home. Deep, dark amber coloured body. Firm and lasing off-white, bubbly head. Decent lacing. Brown malts to the nose with hints of grainy chocolate. Mid-sweet dark malts added by a resin-like touch to the taste buds. Dry bittersweet ending. Slightly oily textured. Satisfying (Tromsř, 20.09.2012).

Decent piwo with some hay, malt, spruce and a bit of leaves. Quite boring but drinkable with no real points making you crazy.

ogniskowicz (214) - POLAND - OCT 23, 2014
UPDATED: OCT 25, 2014 Jak miło napić się takiego piwka. Niewykręcającego mordy goryczką, za to czarującego smakiem, solidną goryczką, owocowymi aromatami, i piękną barwą. Każdy łyk to niekłamana przyjemność. Kolejne piwo od William Brothers, które bardzo trafia w mój gust i jest idealnym odpoczynkiem od triliarda ipa :) Jak zawsze u William - lekko, owocowo, goryczkowo i absolutnie niezobowiązująco. Super.
