500ml bottle bought from the Wanstead Tap at the Wanstead Farmer’s Market. A good, gentle session beer. A golden colour with a medium white head. A dry tasting beer, gently hoppy, with a mild caramel aftertaste.

Cask at the brewery. It was light bodied and smooth but was I felt a fairly generic English blond with everything subdued but melding together well. According to the brewer it wasn’t in peak form any longer.

Cask. Shakespeare’s, Sheffield. Hazy gold. Thickish, lasting, bubbly, white head. Sweet, fruity malts. Taste is sweet, turning fairly bitter. It’s very malty. It’s also pretty bland. Didn’t enjoy this one.

ManVsBeer (6190) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - APR 8, 2015
Cask @ Old Gate, Hebden Bridge. Golden with a small head. A fairly well-balanced ale that still gets stated in both malts and hops with a mild fruitiness to it too.

Rune (9496) - Tromsø, NORWAY - OCT 16, 2014
Half pint, cask ale at Sebright Arms in Bethnal Green. Fragile lacing from a thin, white head. Clear golden coloured body. Mild aroma of grassy hops and bread. Orange fruity flavour joined by herbal hops on a backbone of modest caramel sweetness and followed by a fruit hoppy ending. Medium to thing bodied. Easy to drink. Just alright (London 26.09.2014).

Smell is tiny malty and tiny fruity with white bread, butterscotch, hay, lemon zest and plums. Taste is tiny sweet, bitter, tiny malty and tiny fruity with bread, butter, caramel, butterscotch, hay, orange zest and lemon zest.
