Cask@The Cambridge, London. Copper coloured, small off-white head. Aroma is fruits, floral and mildly grassy hops. Some slight spicyness as well. Flavour is the same along with some chocolate and nutty notes as well. Rather pleasant Shepherd Neame brew.

Spoons. Clear amber beer, ghost of a white head. Light palate. Zero carbonation. Dry malt. Thin hops. A little dust. Neutral finish. Dull bordering on offensive. Sheps can make good beer but beers like this just torpedo any attempt to take them seriously!

Cask conditioned at The Easington, Banbury. Amber to copper with white head. Quite a sweetish, toffee like beer with background notes of liquorice and banana. Some spiciness. It’s reasonably drinkable and not overwhelming.

Rune (11120) - Tromsø, NORWAY - DEC 6, 2012
Half-pint, cask at JDWs Angel. Clear amber body, layer at the top. Resin-like aroma. Quite inviting resin and leafy hops in the flavour profile supported by wood and caramel malts. Dry bitter ending. Decent seasonal bitter (London, 25.11.2012).

UPDATED: DEC 27, 2012 Cask Conditioned handpump Moon On The Square Northampton. A brown beer with a thin off-white head and lacing. A yeasty beer with fruit and biscuit in the mouth, but otherwise very little of anything. Quite boring. Score 2.7
Subsequent rating scored 2.6 Score unaltered
