Pinball (11982) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - SEP 3, 2011
bottle. trade with papsoe. clear brown amber, loarge smooth light brown to beige head. Aroma is pretty strange (not bad) flowers, honey, syrup, caramel, herbs and spcies that adjust the flowery note with something sort of citrussy or limey. a very full and solid aroma, although not powerfull (english beer after al) . flavor is nutty bitter, caramel, flowers, honey. a rather bitter flavor, with subltle notes of sweetness, caramel, herbs, flowers. bitterness manages to round it up just shy of being cloying. okay beer.

Rune (11705) - Tromsř, NORWAY - JUN 1, 2014
500ml bottle, many thanks to Finn for sharing. Huge, mostly diminishing, beige head to a clear amber coloured body. Nice malt-fruity aromas. Caramel malty flavours with leafy hops towards the ending. Fine bodied. Clean in the mouth. Pleasing without greater excitements (at Finns, Tromsř 27.05.2014).
