imdownthepub (14556) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 18, 2017
Cask conditioned at The North Norfolk Railway Beer Festival ’17, Sheringham, Norfolk. Amber to copper with white head. This proved to be quite a basic bitter, caramel with an earthy, twiggy hop note. Malt lead throughout though. It’s okay.

A well kept pint of traditional Best Bitter. A traditional copper coloured best bitter. Smooth on the palette with flavours of toffee and caramel.

Cask @ Calans, Hebden Bridge. Copper with a thin head. Has a crispness above its maltiness, with the latter evident in its nose. Good session ale with not a particularly high bitterness.

Rune (12803) - Tromsø, NORWAY - FEB 25, 2015
Cask ale by hand-pump, half pint at the brewpub in Derby. Clear copper body, missing head, spotty lacing. Mild malt-fruity nose. Flavours of leafy hops, earthy malts and toffee. Rounded bitter finish. Fits the style (20.02.2015).

Cask at the Brunswick, Derby. Enough UK flavour from trad UK hoppage. refreshing UK malting too. Tickled me.
