"A fruity amber beer with more than a hint of hops. The bitterness carries on in the aftertaste. A superb session beer."

tombyars (1453) - Saltcoats, SCOTLAND - FEB 13, 2012
Tasted this in The Esquire House, Glasgow in October 2007. Cask, handpump dispense. Clear pale amber in colour with a thin white head. Slight note of dusty hops in the short floral aroma. Thin resiny mouthfeel and good lacing. Pale malts give a digestive biscuit note to the malty base with a slight note of raisin fruit. Strong prickle of dusty hops adds a short bitter bite to the aftertaste. Finish is malt edged with a hit of golden syrup. An ok session bitter.

sm89walt (1793) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - APR 27, 2011
Cask - The Cottage, Norwich. Fine though lasting moderately loose white head; clear golden body. Aromas are on the sweeter side of the citrus scale with some floral hop and a bit of apple. Earthy on the tongue, some yeast with a light citrus note and toasted malt flavour. Light to medium soft body, short bitterness with a lingering, dry toasty aftertaste.

Classic bitter pour, dry and herbal with a pleasant medium bitterness and a slightly fruity, strawberry, character. Nice.

RichardW (1677) - Carlisle, Cumbria, ENGLAND - OCT 18, 2009
Cask, Hugo’s, Tynemouth. My favourite from the Mordue stable. Great session bitter. Caramel undertone matched by a great hoppy flavour that hits the tongue and gives good bitterness and a fine lingering finish. Fruity and refreshing.

renffisch (868) - london, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 12, 2009
pint at spoons in raynes park. Hazy straw colour, good white head and decent lace. Woody hop nose, quite bitter, but nothing special. Fruity sweet middle and steely finish. Decent.

reakt (949) - Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 1, 2009
Cask @ Masque Haunt ’Spoons. Slightly hazed amber with a lasting off white head. Nose of tropical fruits, sweet malts and juicy hops. Taste is much the same, quite sweet but just enough fruit and hop to keep it interesting.

BeerViking (3010) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 26, 2009
Served with a tight sparkler in the Sir Michael Balcon (JDW) in Ealing, the barman knew his stuff though and pulled it through without knocking all the condition out. Dark gold verging on amber with a big fine head that soon settled down and went lacy. Aromas of freshly squeezed orange juice, plus sweet malt and a hint of pinewood, then the body is surprisingly full for a 3.8%, with more fruit - dried apricot and perhaps a touch of pineapple - and a pronounced and lingering bitterness. A well-balanced session beer, though the orange juice thing was a bit startling at first!

Cask-conditioned at the Commercial Rooms (JDW), Bristol 06/09/09. Golden in colour with a decent white head. A hoppy session bitter with a touch of sweet malts and decent, bitter finish. Good.

Rune (9098) - Tromsø, NORWAY - DEC 9, 2008
Half, cask in perfect condition and served at the right drinking temperature at the Halfway House - a gem of a small pub in central Edinburgh. Copper-amber body. No head, but nice lacework on the glass. Floral fruity smell. Fruity taste with dry apricot and developing bitterness to the ending. Rounded and refreshing. 24.10.2008.
