Cask at The Waiting Room. Clear amber body with a thin off-white head. Good lacing. Aroma of biscuit, lemon and earth. Flavour of caramel, grass and hay. Medium body with an oily mouthfeel. Not as bright and hoppy as I hoped it would be - chuck a few more hops in!

ShaneMains (3) - Sitges, SPAIN - MAR 12, 2015 does not count
Cask @ The Black Lion (Brighton) Great staff! First look provides a golden Amber color with an off-white head. Aroma is earthy at first with a fruity citrus hop just lingering ever so slightly behind. Very easy drinking bear that is bitter, but not overly so and also has a good balance of citrus hop flavor (notes of Mango & Tangerine) that again please the palet, not overwhelm it.

imdownthepub (11130) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 2, 2014
Cask conditioned at The Saint James, Brighton Kemptown. Amber with white head. Sweetish malty beer, there is a slight bitterness. I really didn’t get the Citra hops in this, hidden away for me.

Rune (8927) - Tromsø, NORWAY - SEP 18, 2013
1/3 pint, cask at GBBF 2013. Bubbling, off-white patches at the surface. The body colour is amber-orange. Dusty hops to the nose, hints of apricot. Peach, apricot and mango flavours join by a twist of berries. Rounded bittersweet finish. Pleasant version of the style (London Olympia 13.08.2013).
