Cask conditioned at The Chesterfield Arms, Chesterfield, Derby’s. Hazy gold with white head. Quite a rich, fruity little number, yes peachy in character, some sweetness, light syrupy note but not without dryness as well. Dame Nelly would be pleased!

Keg in Tapped Leeds. Pale golden with a good white head. Lots of refreshing peach and citrus flavour. A lovely summer beer. Refreshing and easy to sink. I don’t really like peach flavour, but this is decent.

On cask at Coach and Horses, Dronfield - Gutted I missed this first time round, so was chuffed to get one of the first pulls this year. Very fragrant peach nose, lots of floral aroma. Taste is dry, peach again at the fore, not as sweet as I’d feared, and a little bitter on the way out too. Mouthfeel had a gentle carbonation, making it a good all-round crowdpleaser.

Rune (8189) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JUL 15, 2013
Half, cask at Mr. Foley’s Cask Ale House. White layer at the top of a clear golden coloured body. Spotty lacing down the glassware. Fruit hoppy aroma joined by a touch of wheat. Malt-fruity flavours of mild caramel and fresh nectarine. Bittersweet fruity tail. Medium bodied. Satisfying and thirst quenching (Leeds 01.07.2013).

Cask at The Victoria, Birmingham. Gentle fragrant fruitiness in the arome. Sticky gobful. Some froth. Quite sweet, but not quite sure I can actively taste the peach. Or hops. IPA? Probably more of a fruity Golden. But we all know that that’s nit-picking. Very nice.
