Rune (8044) - Tromsø, - DEC 20, 2010
Cask conditioned, half pint at Barony Bar. Copper- amber body. Low head with fragile lace dripping. Fine malt-fruity aroma. Blend of caramel malts and leafy hops in flavour, developing into a nice bitter round off. Traditional good British bitter (Edinburgh, 01.12.2010).

tombyars (1356) - Saltcoats, SCOTLAND - MAR 11, 2012
Tasted this in the Last Post, Paisley (JDW) in November 2008. Cask, handpump dispense. Clear copper in colour with a thick creamy white head. Strong malty aroma. Good creamy mouthfeel and excellent lacing. Pale malts give a digestive biscuit base with redcurrant fruit notes. Metallic hop tang gives a tinny flavour to the bitter aftertaste. Malt just edges it in the finish with roasted hazelnuts present in the mouth. A decent session bitter.

BeerSkull (1304) - SWEDEN - SEP 12, 2011
Soft aroma of hops, brown sugar and malt with notes of caramel. The taste is soft with hints of malt, caramel and a gentle hops bitterness. I like that the caramel flavor is slightly in the background and not as intrusive in the taste. Easy to drink and refreshing good!
