Rune (9311) - Tromsø, NORWAY - FEB 11, 2013
Half pint, cask at JDWs Paramount. Low white head blanketing the glassware. Cloudy golden body. Wheat-like fruits to the nose. Mixed taste of mild grapefruit, lemon and orange. Dry bitter ending. Does not feel too thin on the swallow. Nice and fresh (Manchester, 25.01.2013).

Beesbeer (452) - WALES - OCT 24, 2012
UPDATED: OCT 25, 2012 Fresh and grassy..... About right for a grassy location, Immediate hops and bitterness followed by hay and honey flavours and then back to a full bitter punch and clean zesty finish

HogTownHarry (6201) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - AUG 24, 2012
Handpull at The Mudlark. Clear pale gold with a solid frothy/creamy whiteish rocky head. Wheat, lemongrass, light cereal, no alcohol. Taste has more lemongrass and lemon zest, a bit of alcohol - airy body, a bit astringent, fairly long dry pithy finish that seems to transmute to grapefruit from grass - two damned fine ales to kick off my Southwark pub wander.
