imdownthepub (9954) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 10, 2014
Cask conditioned at Banbury Beer Fest ’14. Gold with white head. This proved to have quite a perfumed, fruity beer with a distinct peachy flavour, slightly flabby, hints of tartness. It’s ok.

Bottle from Rehills, Newcastle. This is a hazy amber beer with citrus and grapefruit flavours, woody notes with pine and a slight tart finish.

Bottle @ home. Aroma is fruity and floral hops, some caramel malt. Flavour is quite bitter of fruity and floral hops. Some malt notes. Nice one.

turbothy (1072) - Bonn, GERMANY - SEP 6, 2013
Pours clear amber with a small but thick head. Hoppy aroma, full mouthfeel and a quite intense bitter flavour. Good beer.

Beer4000 (4395) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUL 17, 2013
Cask @ The Foundry. Rather clear golden body with a small off-white head. Mild and nice fruity aroma with pale malt. Flavor is smooth pale ale, fruity hops and a good level of bitterness for a bitter. Medium body and a nice bitter aftertaste. Nice, uncomplicated session ale with fine balance and pleasant bitterness.

suprchunk (2029) - Crestview, Florida, USA - MAY 8, 2013
Dark golden. Medium sized white head. Plenty of lacing. Hoppy aroma with some malt. A slight acetone note. Smooth drinking cask ale. Bitter malty and quenching. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Foundry, Cant. Cask. Jan, 2012. Decent best bitter. Some caramel malt, and a pleasant hop balance. OK.

Finn (4003) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JAN 11, 2013
Flaske 0,5l delt med Rune under seanse hos ham 7 Jan 13. Gave fra Harrisoni! Thanks a lot. Gyldenbrun. Litt uklar. Høyt luftig skum med mye lacing. Pent! Forsiktig fruktaroma. Antydning til fjøssmak - men den går over i en tung bitterhet. Veldig uklar i siste kvelling.

Rune (7760) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JAN 8, 2013
500ml bottle passed on by Harrisoni during a trip to London last November. Many thanks to Harrisoni for this beer gift that Finn and I enjoyed back home during a rating session. Pours a beige, bubbly head with good duration. Spotty lacing to the glass. Near-clear, golden body. Dry hoppy fruits and grainy malts to the nose. Mild malt-fruity taste with leafy hops creating a fine, dry bitter ending. Smooth on the swallow. Nice bitter (Tromsø, 07.01.2013).

AndrewC (321) - Canterbury, Kent, ENGLAND - SEP 2, 2012
Bottle conditioned. Tasted just like the cask version - which always surprises me for a bottled beer. Great peppery hop. Good malt. Very moreish. My favourite Canterbury Brewers beer I think.
