Good hoppy aroma with some pub carpet. Slightly banana vibes, pretty decent if a bit under carbonated.

Craft Clerkenwell. Clear gold beer, little white head. Light palate, very slightly soft. Very mild carbonation. Light floralness and sweetish marmalade citrus. Neutral finish. It’s fine and went well with the Craft’s delicious spicy pork pie!

realalechamp (41) - Greater Manchester, ENGLAND - AUG 13, 2012
Had on cask at Deramore. Quite the typical golden ale, which is by no means a bad thing. Distinct fruity hop character. I would prefer this to a bitter on most occasions.

Rune (7827) - Tromsø, NORWAY - AUG 10, 2012
A half pint, served at a fin drinking temperature by hand pump at the Whitelocks pub in Leeds. Amber coloured body. Creamy white head, ring lacing to the glassware. Dried and fresh fruity smell. Malt-fruity taste with notes of red orange coming through. Smooth bitter ending. Oily texture. More than satisfying (12.07.2012).

Some grass in the aroma and taste. Would have liked more to the hops than this. Drinkable, but Kirkstall has some much better offerings.

AshtonMcCobb (2394) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAY 17, 2012
On tap @ the Haymarket Bar. Pours hazy, amber with a proportionate head. The nose has grapefruit and some pale malt in the background. The taste has more of the same. The palate is medium bodied and textured with a clean finish. Overall, a nice beer.
