Cask-conditioned at the Seven Stars, Bristol 05/08/10. Deep gold in colour with a decent, off-white head. Lemon and green herb aroma. Slightly sweet malt flavour, with a hint of lime and massive bitter finish, which was a touch touch aggressive for me. Good. DruncanVeasey (8226) - NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - AUG 1, 2010
Cask handpull, The Devonshire Cat, Sheffield. Pale bronze with a level white head draping the glass. Good aroma; flowery hop, honey on wholemeal, lemon meringue. Dankness, lemon and honey: a winning combo. Quietly impressive, with some pungent, off-beam, dank dishcloth hops.

cask at the bow ... nice golden amber ... sweet green fresh hop nose ... dry front ... juicy sweet creamy soft hop ... subtle but tasty ... reall like this Rune (12814) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JUL 21, 2010
Half pint, cask. Shiny, golden brown body. Bright, naked surface. Fragile lacework on the top of the glass. Discreet smell of malts and fruits. Earthy malts and sweet fruits in flavour along with a bittersweet ending. Rather jam-like. Soft in the mouth. Medium bodied. Enjoyed in very relaxing Sunday atmosphere at the Duck and Drake in Leeds, 11.07.2010. Fin (10542) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 19, 2010
Cask, gravity at Merton Summer Beer Festival, 17-07-10 Pours gold with slim white head, nice clarity to this. Aroma is a bit zingy with citrus, a touch of freshly chopped garden herbs and a little pine. This is a clean tasting fresh crisp tasty bitter beer, the lemon and pine show a little in the mouth, and whilst this is really enjoyable its never likely to have that wow factor.

Cask conditioned at Merton Summer Beer Fest ’10. Gold with white head. These single hop showcases are great and thought provoking, Green Bullet tasted like a Czech,lagery hop to me, pine and lemon, a little resinous. I’m not sure we will see a lot of this hop over here, it doesn’t quite fit an Ale, but good stuff all the same. MesandSim (7117) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 17, 2010
A Mes rate. Gravity at Merton Beer Festival.DJMonarch (9179) - Northwich, Cheshire, ENGLAND - JUL 16, 2010
Thanks to Fin for making sure I got to try this as it was on the way out. Very clean gold with a greenish tinge and a thin but lasting white head. Lovely New Zealand hoppage on the nose but let down a little by a hint of diacetyl. Thankfully it’s not apparent in the mouth. Maybe just a light unexpected sweetness but it’s not a bad thing. In fact it sits really well alongside the assertive bitter and grassy hops. Very good citric notes. Slight leather and peat from the malt, which does a good job of carrying the flavours. A new hop to me and one I found to be quite interesting.
Cask Handpump at the Penny Black JDW, Northwich 11/06/2010
Malt and hop aromas. Small white head. Golden coloured hoppy and bitter with a little dryness in a pale malt finish. chriso (7533) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 16, 2008
Cask (handpump) at The Palace, Leeds, October 2006.Amber colour. Well hoppy. Almost US in style but with a strong lingering bitterness on the palate. Very clean and crisp. Excellent.

Gravity, Turf Tavern Autumn Beer Festival. Pale gold with a cap of off-white. Blackberry and mint aroma, just a faint touch of sulfer clouds the otherwise very pretty hops. Big clean bitterness, rounded soft malt, a nice touch of bready warmth in the finish. Solid.
