Rune (13509) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JUL 27, 2015
500ml bottle many thanks to ManVsBeer. Clear golden-brown body. Lacing rings down the glass from a decent off-white head. Dry aroma of grass and mid-sweet malts. Moderate flavours of pears, herbal hops, and caramel malts. Bittersweet endnotes. Clean in the mouth and easy to drink. Accepted (hotel room, Bloomsbury 10.07.2015).

olio (10552) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUN 26, 2015
Cask @ O’Connel’s.
Pours clear color with a small head. Bland fruit aroma. Flavor has orange, mild fruits, some gooseberries. Bland and quite boring.

rosenbergh (11809) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUN 26, 2015
Cask at the O’Connell’s, Tampere, Finland. Slightly cloudy amber golden colour with a tiny creamy off-white head. Berries.... ? The flavor is hops, bitterness and berries. Not that flavorful. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

StueyD (1586) - Heacham, Norfolk, ENGLAND - APR 3, 2015
A mid copper red coloured beer with a frothy off white head. A light caramel malt aroma, some nuttiness and a tad smoky, they is a citrus hop element in the background. Dry mouthfeel. A dry malt taste, caramel, biscuit, bread, nutty, hints of spice and smoke. This is followed by a mildly bitter citrusy and grassy hop flavour that lingers into the lengthy finish.

McWorta (1633) - LUXEMBOURG - JUL 14, 2014
Amber, copper crystal clear in colour with a rather dark white fading head. Good lacing. On the nose aromas of dark raisins, vanilla infused malt notes with hints of wet grass and light wood notes. With a light soft CO2 proppeled palate the raisin-malt, vanilla, wet grass/wood flavours are intensified enabling to develop a light-medium body. The finish is reminding of dark fruits and caramel malt with a light bitter note lasting medium long. Pretty good bitter!

Nocturne (1992) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - JUL 3, 2014
Cask at the White Bear, Middlewich. Mid-dark amber shade with some nice lacing initally from the head. Caramel malty with a moderate amount of leafy, herbal hops imparting some flavour. A little greasy and resinous feeling like some others of theirs I’ve had. Not bad.

victorsampson96 (157) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAY 16, 2014
UPDATED: JUN 6, 2014 Hazy, light copper beer, low carbonation. Light citrus, caramel and biscuit. Sweet, but dominated by peppery hops. Maybe a little watery, but overall an enjoyable and refreshing bitter!

UPDATED: MAR 26, 2014 Nice fresh taste. Crisp and refreshing. Not sure I could drink a lot of this but 2/3 go down very well
