flying_pig (941) - SCOTLAND - SEP 17, 2012
Bottle (500ml):
Sweet malts and some sugar to begin, there is a touch of caramel and toffee plus a slight almond aroma and burnt sugar right at the end. There was some fruity hops and a touch of citrus in there as well.
Clear copper amber in appearance with a tiny, white lace for a head that mainly sticks to the sides of the glass.
Nice earthy malts to begin with along with some lighter hops and sugar. I could detect some caramel and then some bitterness after this with background fruits and citrus also present.
Smooth with a slightly dry feel and medium body. There was mild carbonation and a lot of earthy bitterness towards the end.

An average English bitter really, it was quite nice with dinner and had a solid, earthy taste with good character and depth but the finish was maybe just that little bit too bitter for me. A pleasant beer none the less and one that was highly drinkable and probably worth a try.

Rune (8044) - Tromsø, NORWAY - MAY 4, 2012
Thanks to Adam for buying me a half pint of this one from cask at Guildford Arms. Copper-gold body, faint head, fair lacing. Malt-fruity nose. Toasted malts and herbal hoppy taste. Nice bitter roundup. Slightly thin on the swallow (Edinburgh, 14.04.2012).

This semi dark ale with white head was not bloody bad, worth the taste for sure. Tangy and sharp
