Cask@The Cask Pub And Kitchen. Golden colour, small white creamy head. Aroma is fruits, wood, nectar, mildly bready as well as some herbal notes. Flavour is quite bready along with some wooden and grassy notes. Mild citrusy notes as well. Quite nice for being a rather low ABV beer.

A Mes rate. Cask at the Cask n Kit hen.
Ok so I meant the Cask & Kitchen but that’s what came out so I’m rolling with it. Very clean gold with an impressive white head and plenty of lace. A straight forward light drinking bitter. For all the shouting about hops on the pump clip, it’s really not showing in the beer. Basic bitter flavour, slightly floral, some decent earthy malt. Typically English and rather excellent for it. Light and easy drinking, lots of flavour and character. Good stuff.

Rune (11120) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JUL 22, 2010
Half pint, cask. Bright golden-amber body. Low, filmy layer. Dry hopped aroma. Sweet malts and fruity hops in flavour followed by a spicy, dry bitter end. Amazing flavour for a low alcohol beer. Well handpulled and served at The Cask Pub and Kitchen, Pimlico, London. Refreshing after the long drive from Leeds, 15.07.2010.

Ethereal (2421) - Los Angeles, California, USA - MAY 24, 2010
Cask at the Cask Pub & Kitchen, Victoria, 3rd May 2010. Clear amber with a small white head. Light, quite refreshing but less hoppy than I’d expect from a Thornbridge beer. Palate is thin and a bit watery. Lives up to its name for sure but a bit dull. Good for lunchtime drinking though!

Cask handpull at The Cask Pub & Kitchen, Pimlico. Gold, thin off white head. Some hop on aroma. OK body, bit of toffee, bit of hard toffee in the mouth, finish is slightly hoppy. OK. Quite biting on finish and really easy to drink as you would expect.
