@ The White Horse, zona Parsons Green, Londra; il barista l’ha descritta come "very pale", a me il colore sembrava dorato. C’è del nelson sauvin ma è andata giù come acqua, davvero buona ed esile da bere come la maggior parte delle real ales inglesi.

Cask (gravity dispense) at Kingston Beer Festival on 13 May 2011. Gold colour. No head to speak of but lively condition. Quite delicate, soft and perfumed. Some flowery and leafy gooseberry character but quite restrained. Roosters deserve plaudits for being one of the pioneers of using exotic hop varieties but I think I’ve come to expect a slightly more assertive hop burst in these relatively low strength aromatic hop-led beers in recent times. Overall though an amiable, easy-drinking and refreshing quaffer.

Rune (7361) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JUL 20, 2010
Cask, half pint, served lightly chilled in a mug at the North Bar in Leeds. Golden body topped by a film type layer. Aroma of fruity hops. Hints of lemon and grapefruits in flavour rounded off by a dry bitter ending. Very refreshing and paired well with local made cheese (Sunday pub crawl in Leeds, 11.07.2010).
