Rune (9661) - Tromsø, NORWAY - OCT 1, 2014
Half, hand pulled cask ale, 3.4 % abv, at Craft Beer Co in Clerkenwell. Clear golden coloured body. No lace from a low white head. Modest taste of grapefruit. Pineapples and citrus peels to the taste buds followed by a fresh fruit bitter finish. Easy to drink without being diluted. Refreshing (London 23.09.2014).

BeerViking (3471) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 13, 2012
Cask at the Magpie, pours a mid brown with a clingy white head and herby hoppy aromas. Crisp, hoppy and biscuity palate, with a lingering grapefruit-bitter finish. Very refreshing and more-ish.

Benjii (3049) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 3, 2012
On cask at Cloisters. Pours a light golden colour with a thick white head. A citrus hop aroma of lemon, pine and pineapple. Similar flavours. Very drinkable. Just a little thin, although it is 3.2%. Moderate carbonation and quite drinkable.

Caak @ Red Squirrel 270312
Amber orange, frothy white head, lots of static bubbles
Aroma of light lemon bit of cake mix
Taste of lemon, bit of lemon meringue pie, slight lime...wow the flavour for 3.4%..lemon bitterness takes over after drinking a bit clouding initial taste
Palate - soft to medium carb, thin body. Finish very dry, much more bitterness comes thorough then cleans off palate
Overall - so much flavour for 3.4% but eventually masked by the bitter finish

gegwilson (2379) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - NOV 2, 2014
Cask in the Tap Room, Lancaster. Pours golden with a thin white head. Some slightly plastic notes alongside more pleasant but mild grapefruit notes and a bitter finish. Thin and watery. I wasn’t much of a fan of this one.

Cask at the Southampton Arms on 4th May 2011. Gold with thin white head and partial lace. Mildly hoppy and fruity; berry fruits and citric hoppiness, little metalic note and biscuit malts. Bittersweet rounded finish lingering with upper-mouth bitterness noticeable. Light mouthfeel.
