11.2 oz bottle, thanks Poisoneddwarf- Pours beery copper golden with a white head that mostly holds. Aroma is European, grains, floral, generic beer. The taste is grains, crystal malt, faint bubble gum, floral, pretty generic, European lager flavor, but really no major off notes.

Rune (12071) - Troms, NORWAY - DEC 21, 2015
330ml bottle, many thanks to djoeye. Huge, bubbly, off-white head leaving crocheted lacing as it goes down. Bright golden body. Aroma of dusty hops, apples and yeast. Mixed taste of mild caramel, apples and a backdrop of cinnamon. Slight yeasty fruitiness to the ending. Silky mouth feel with warming alcohol. Pleasing without being great (Troms 18.12.2015).

Not what I combine with a Christmas beer. The taste disappears after a short time. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Pours a clear golden with a medium dense top. Fruity aroma with a noble hop grassy/floral touch. Light sweet taste with more fruity / yeastyness. Hints of cereal. Body is medium and co2 is lively.

bhensonb (14891) - Woodland, California, USA - APR 25, 2015
Bottle from a multi-pack with a glass at The Davis Beer Shoppe. Pours gold with a white head. Aroma is fruity and herbal - yet making me think of seafood. Med + body. Flavor is herbal, yeast, lightly metallic. Sort of crisp. If one appreciates the ales on the shoulders of the bell curve, this is it! Its rather dry, somewhat hoppy, and fitting my taste range.
