Rune (8487) - Tromsø, NORWAY - AUG 1, 2014
Half-pint, keg at The Hop in York. Clear golden coloured body. Bubbly ring at the surface. Fragile lacing. Fruit and coffee on the nose. Flavours of mid-tart berries, hints of grapefruit and a touch of bitter coffee grounds to the ending. Medium bodied. Interesting and different. Quite alright (11.07.2014).

Listed as a bitter, tastes more like a hopped up IPA, aroma described by my other half as like rat urine. Tastes better!

For the sake of the social interaction just numeral ratings and/or some highlighted attributes. Nice overwhelming fruitiness, balanced.

Brigadier (3095) - Clevelandish, Ohio, USA - SEP 1, 2013
On cask at the Furnace Inn (Derby)
With a name like that I had to give this one a try. For the low risk cost of £2.00 I soon had a half pint to sample. The result was an excellent American style IPA that was very drinkable. There are very few bad options at the Furnace Inn.

Aroma / Appearance - A golden carbonated base bubbles with a sparkling texture. Like a bright champagne it bubbles away though the stiff white head is different than a brut. Fresh lemons, roses, peaches, and white grapes are both fruity and sweet at the same time.

Flavor / Palate - Peaches, lemons, and roses start the taste profile with a bang. Bright and hoppy almost immediately it sticks the throat. The malts, while not overpowering, do bring it a great balance. I would drink this more often if I had to spend more time overseas as it is almost like a taste of home in UK soil.

DanielBrown (3923) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - JUL 26, 2012
Hand pulled at the Post Office Vaults, Birmingham. Golden, thin pond of head. Smells good - Pacific Jade maybe? Taste is not quite up to the aroma, but is certainly fruity - raspberry, blackberry. Some bitter green leaf notes also and a thimble of sherbet on the finish, which is quite agreesive. Lacks subtlety, but a flavourful UK IPA.
