Rune (8042) - Tromsø, NORWAY - FEB 2, 2013
Full pint, hand pulled cask at Mr. Thomas Chop House. Near clear copper coloured body. Tiny layer at the top. Malt-fruity nose. Ditto taste, rather jam-like leading to a resin-like bitterness. Watered. A little floury on the swallow, otherwise a quite decent one in great pub surroundings and company with Adam and Finn (Manchester, 22.01.2013).

tombyars (1356) - Saltcoats, SCOTLAND - MAR 13, 2012
Sampled this in the Bar Point, Paisley in June 1992. Cask, handpump dispense. Dark amber in colour with a thin creamy white head. Aromatic hop flower bouquet, short on the nose. Thin mouthfeel and good lacing. Pale malt gives a digestive biscuit base flavour with slight gooseberry fruit notes. Dry dusty hop resins gives a slight bitter astringency to the short aftertaste. Finish has a sweetness of barley sugar fading to leave a dusty resiny palate. A poor session bitter.
