Rune (9308) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JUL 21, 2010
Just a bit of haze to a light golden body. No head, but spotty lacework on the glassware. Fresh smell of fruity hops. Malt-fruity taste developing towards notes of leafy and oily hops. Bitter endnotes. Well bodied compared to the low alcohol strength. Cask, half pint enjoyed at the classic English pub called Duck and Drake in Leeds, 11.07.2010.

DruncanVeasey (7634) - NUNEATON, CONF N, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - APR 27, 2011
Bottle from Booth’s..Ilkley, funnily enough. Lager gold heaped with a loose bathfoam head. Aroma of dandelions, babbling Yorkshire brooks, soft stones, woods whitening with Hawthorn blossom. Taste of Rich Tea biscuits, slate rubbed with caramel; clean grassy, biscuit character with a deep, barely discernible undercurrent of tangerine. Quietly impressive.
