Rune (8484) - Tromsø, NORWAY - MAR 27, 2013
Half pint, cask at Charlie’s Bar. Low bubbly head that remains at the top of a clear golden coloured body. Plain fruit hoppy aroma. Fresh hoppy taste with a lemony impact. Mid-dry, sharp bitter ending. Quite well bodied. Enjoying (Copenhagen, 23.03.2013).

Cask @ Cask & Pub Kitchen
Aroma has fruity hops, some vanilla and resin. Flavour has fruity hops, some resiny malt and touch of berries. Quite good for this ABV, although the berry notes disturb a bit.

Gravicask (PBBF2012, Wed)
6 OK pale hoppy aroma, nothing jumps out.
3 Pale, brief head.
6 Gentle light barley malt. But only the barest minimum to be considered a proper beer.
4 Soft palate, carbonation low. A zesty lemon finish brightens up the experience.
13- A perfectly drinkable golden, but not inspiring me. Thank goodness for the finish, else this would have been drab.

Cask@GBBF2012. Yellowish golden colour with a minor white head. Aroma is citrus, some mild floral notes, nectar and some slight sweet maltyness. Flavour is rather malty with some slight citrus, nectar and honey as well. Pleasantly balanced, and good session beer.

HogTownHarry (6129) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - SEP 8, 2012
August 23, 2012 - handpull at The Craft Beer Co. Very pale clear gold/yellow, lots of tiny suspended white particles, small lasting foamy off-white head. Smells like gluten and grass, maybe a touch of heather, no alcohol. Taste is ... slightly honey-sweet, but mostly a standard grassy golden ale. Average body, mild carbonation, a not too sweet grassy light finish. Nothing special, not bad though.
