Cask & bottle; Regular.
A special dry-hopped version was produced for the Pigs Ear Beer Festival 2011.

A classic, crisp, lighter ale. Hoppy, but not overpowering, it’s a pleasant session quaff.

500ml bottle from ales by mail. Hazy pale-amber in colour with a lasting, thick and creamy white head. Toasty and light caramel aromas and a touch grassy. Initial sweet and malty flavours before hops and subtle bitterness come through. Nice, easy drinking pale.

Rune (9352) - Tromsø, NORWAY - OCT 6, 2014
Half pint handpulled cask ale at The Union Tavern. Crystal clear golden body. Naked on the surface. Fruity hops and bread on the nose, semi-dry. Taste of fresh tropical fruits mingled with mild brown malts leading to a dry bitter ending. Medium to thin bodied. Satisfying and quite refreshing (London 24.09.2014).

stravale (2495) - Near Carrick-on-Shannon, IRELAND - JUL 24, 2014
Bottle from Beer52.com [230714]
Orange amber, soft haze, frothy fluffy white head, some lacing
Aroma of very soft fruits, soft pale malts, light citrus
Taste of soft sweet fruits, dab of bitter orange, slight mineraly notes probably from the yeast, soft bit jammy fruits carry nicely to the finish
Palate - soft carb, medium body, soft sweet, soft bitter, nice balance. Finish fairly bitter, bit of a flinty linger (which I’m not that keen on) with soft fruits
Overall - Quite good

Smells like marshmallows and toffee. Very light brown colour. Surprisingly hoppy taste. A bit fruity. Alright but I wouldn't have another one. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
