Cask. A light golden beer with a lazing white head. The aroma has notes of diacethyl and fruits. The flavor is sweet with notes of diacethyl and fruit on a lightly malty background, leading to a dry and lightly bitter finish.

Leighton (18034) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 1, 2010
Gravity cask at the Pig’s Ear. Pours clear yellow-gold with a faint, bubbly white head. Holds an absolutely beautiful aroma, pine, sappy, with fresh pineapple and light bread. Great flavor too, with woody pine notes, light spiciness, some lightly tart but sweet fruit juice, modestly bitter. Light to medium in body with fine to average carbonation. The finish is lightly sticky, with more piney hops, some fruity sweetness, and subtle malts. Really, really good.

[RBESG, Sheffield]
Cask @ Star Inn, Huddersfield.
Pours clear golden with a small, super-nice, creamy, white head. ARoma has light butter, some grapefruit. Light, soft carbonation, fine dry mouthfeel. Flavour still has some butter, light bready and with a fair amount of fruity hops. Good fruity, hoppy finish. Just too much butter, sadly.

Rune (10927) - Tromsø, NORWAY - AUG 21, 2012
500ml bottle brought back home from the Microbar in Manchester. Shared with Finn at a rating session. Frothy, bubbly white head. Cloudy, light amber coloured body. Smell of caramel malts and dusty hops. Caramel malts and lemony hoppy taste. Dry bittersweet end. Nice and easy drinking (Tromsø, 18.07.2012).
