Rune (12753) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JUL 21, 2017
Keg, 2.8 % avb, half-pint at the Samuel Smith pub Angel Inn. Nitro creamy, beige head blanketing the glass. Almost black in body appearance. Lightly roasted malty taste, hints of earth and chocolate. Dark malty taste, hints of chocolate and nuts. Lightly roasted ending. Thin bodied, still quite smooth on the swallow. Easy going, decent mild. (Leeds 05.07.2017).

Very dark brown colour with thin creamy head. Aroma has some roasted dark malts. Body is a bit light but it’s very flavoursome for the low abv.
