Oakes (15664) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 14, 2001
One of those macrobrewed British IPAs (like Deuchars) - far too light for the style and not very interesting.

mcberko (14411) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 22, 2011
On tap at Slug and Lettuce, pours clear bronze. Aroma of bitter English malts and light caramel. Flavour of traditional bitter English malts, light toasted caramel and light spices. Not too good.

FatPhil (13867) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - NOV 13, 2007
Cask (The Anchor, Cambridge) I’ve had some dodgy ones of this in my time, but this was surprisingly good. Dark copper coloured, thin head. Nutty and malty aroma. Taste to match, nuts joined with wood too. Rather flat. Very solid bitter.

imdownthepub (13246) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 11, 2003
Cask Conditioned at The Lampett Arms, Tadmarton, Oxon. A beer with a chequered past and an uncertain future, the life has left this one, but this is quite typical. Another unloved traveller that could be so much more. Boiled malt with cabbagy hops, cheaply thrown together. Why do Macro Brewery's not look after their brands instead of cost reducing?

I had this beer many years ago in England at one time when I was too lazy and stupid to write my thoughts. I will update this as soon as I get my hands on this beer again.

Rune (11123) - 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).
