Cask at Borefts BF 2012. A golden beer with a white head. The aroma has notes of citrusy hops, malt, and rye. The flavor is sweet with barley, rye, and a bit of hops, leading to dry finish.

Very refreshing summer beer. A cucumber flavour beer shouldn’t work, but like the mint choc chip stout, this works. sadly i had to be an adult and only have one pint of it...

Cask at CBC, Brixton. Pours a straw colour with a thin white head. The aroma is very subtle - not much. A light maltiness if anything. Light body. It's sweet cucumber, with some candy. Nice. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Palme (2993) - Bergen, NORWAY - JAN 15, 2013
On tap @ Borefts 2012. This is crystal clear golden in color and it has a small light sidesticking just off-white head. Smells grainy and malt-sweet. Some ripe fruitiness also, but it’s quite grainy. It’s average to soft, prickling on the carbonation and light oily in the texture. Not so bad flavors, it’s mild, yeah. Some butter caramel and floral hints with something reminding of cucumber juice. Strange. The butter comes more forward in the finish and aftertaste. Easy drinking. 28.09.2012

Rune (7355) - Tromsø, NORWAY - DEC 9, 2012
Half-pint, from the keg menu at Euston Tap where the beer was chilled down a bit too far. Next to clear copper coloured body. Mild impact of floral hops and earthy malts to the nose. Taste of honey sweetness and pale malts. Mid-dry ending. Clean and refreshing down the throat. Just alright (London, 27.11.2012).
