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

Ungstrup (29850) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JAN 2, 2008
Cask at Charlie’s Bar, Copenhagen. A slightly hazy golden beer with a thin beige head. The aroma is sweet malty with flowery notes of hops. The flavor is sweet malty again with flowery notes of hops as well as light notes of elderberries, leading to a bitter finish. The body is thin. Quite refreshing - nice session beer.

harrisoni (14138) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - OCT 23, 2006
Cask handpull at Wetherspoon’s Folkestone. Slight haze with a copper colour and a bubbly beige head. Quite a lovely hop aroma, bit of malty fruit. Malt is a little syrupy in mouth. Palate is odd. Bit medicinal. Finish has goodish hop, drying. Shame, as I like Mordue beers, but th malt isn’t right on this and the hop is too drying on the end to be balanced.

Cask Handpump at the Rat & Ratchet, Huddersfield 26/07/2003 Clear golden coloured with some citrus aroma. Slightly dry malt hop finish.

maeib (8750) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - OCT 30, 2013
Cask conditioned handpump Royal Blenheim Oxford 19/10/13. A golden coloured beer with a white head. A nice citrussy beer. Good lime notes. A decent body. Nicely balanced although the hop does dominate in a good way. A tasty beer.

Rune (8493) - 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.

Skinnyviking (7235) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAY 20, 2006
Draught. Small white head. Clear golden body. Roasted malt aroma. Very light and easy to drink. Too ananomous with insuffiicient bitterness. A disapointment.

MesandSim (7118) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 25, 2006
A Mes rate: Cask at Victoria Station JDW. Tastes like cold tea to me. Notes of fresh hops that are almost sweet, yes I know it’s an oxymoron but whatever. Reasonable bitter finish. Unpleasant off character in the aroma.

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.
