tombyars (1589) - Saltcoats, SCOTLAND - FEB 16, 2012
Tasted this in The Esquire House, Glasgow (JDW) in November 2008. Cask, handpump dispense. Pale straw in colour with a thin white head. Superb aroma of toffee and ripe mango fruit, long in intensity. Thin resiny mouthfeel and good lacing. Pale malt base gives a medlay of fruit flavours with lychees, peaches, and honeydew melon present. Plenty of aromatic hops abound in the long aftertaste with tart citrus notes of grapefruit, lemon and goosberry. Tart bitter finish with dry grapefruit pith but not too cloying. A decent session Golden Ale with a complex range of fruit flavours. Well recommended.

Rune (11123) - Tromsø, NORWAY - SEP 11, 2011
Cask, one-third pint at P4 Gray Bar, third day at GBBF’11. Bright surface to a crystal clear, golden coloured body. Fruit bitter nose. Smooth taste profile of citric fruits, including lemon and resin, added by a mild touch of ripe banana. Dry, subdued bitter endnotes. Rather tasty brew (London, 04.08.2011)
