thewolf (12372) - Kolding, DENMARK - JAN 26, 2008
Bottle, bought @ ltorvet.dk. Pours a pretty, weak golden with a very pretty, frothy white head - rather large. Aroma is sweet, malty, some ginger and hops. Surprisingly full mouthfeel. Flavour is malty sweet, doughy, but with a nice hoppy finish that doesnt get too dry. Nice Pale Lager.

Rune (12071) - Troms, NORWAY - FEB 10, 2012
355ml bottle kindly shared by Finn at a drinking session. Partially gushing when opened. Near-clear, yellow-gold body colour. Fresh, but subdued, floral-fruity aroma as well as pale malts. Herbal hops and malts in flavour followed by a mild fruity tail. Clean tasting. Drinkable (at Finns in Troms, 09.02.2012).

"good organic beer...consistently good, a feat in itself. i like the organic ale just a touch better, but they are both quite enjoyable. this one is just a touch more bitter and lighter in color."

shrubber85 (11215) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - JUN 30, 2007
Bottle. Sour barley malt aroma. Pale yellow color with nice big head. Slightly sour barley malt flavor. Fuller flavor than the average pale lager. Decent beer - better than most macros.
