Craft Clerkenwell. Clear gold beer, little white head. Light palate with mild fine carbonation. Hoppier than the pale ale, this beer has slightly resinous grapefruit and marmalade. Again a floral note. Finishes with a mellow but satisfying hoppy bitterness.

rlgk (10534) - Göteborg/Jönköping, SWEDEN - DEC 29, 2012
Cask at Draft House, Tower Bridge, London. Somewhat hazy golden beer with a small but lasting offwhite head. Fruity citrus aroma, grapefruit, metal notes, red grapes, floral, rather bitter, some biscuits. Hoppy floral flavor, caramel, floral, dandelions, sourish notes, orange peel, grassy. A bit one dimensional on the bitter side.

Cask conditioned Handpump Mr Foleys Leeds. A copper coloured beer with a white head and lacing. A pleasant hoppy aroma with citrus notes. The mouth was spoiled though as the beer was served too warm thus not allowing the flavours to flourish. If anything the hops were a bit harsh.

Rune (8049) - Tromsø, NORWAY - AUG 7, 2012
Half pint, cask, guest ale at The Brewery Tap in Leeds. Cloudy amber body. Nitro creamy, white lacing head. Smell of dried fruits. Hoppy fruity taste with a twist of apricot. Nice bitter support. Rather flavoursome and a good one. (08.07.2012).

DruncanVeasey (7191) - NUNEATON, Top 18, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - MAR 27, 2014
Cask, Pure Bar, Birmingham, 26/03/14. Honey amber with a creamy white collar. Nose involves fresh resiny pine, leather and grapefruit. Balanced moderate pine and grapefruit overtaken by husky lingering malt and biscuit. Touches of smoke. Plenty of punch at the ABV- certainly more IPA than ESB.
