jjsint (2689) - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - NOV 29, 2016
Handpull cask at the Townhouse, Ely. Amber/gold, with a thick white head and good lacing. Malty aroma, toast with biscuit spread and orange peel make a cautious appearance. Sweet malty taste, but its got a bit of a sour backwash. Weird sour woody-malty finish. Not as sold on this one but its passable and has some genuinely nice qualities. Just unbalanced.

Cask (Mill, Cambridge)
Rich barley aroma, but quite muted. Rusty orange, small persistent head. Eww, cheesy hints in the taste, but not sour too fortunately. Watery palate. Dry and bitter, and not satisfying at all.

Rune (11807) - Troms, NORWAY - OCT 8, 2014
Gravicask, shared with Finn at St Albans Beer Festival. Cloudy golden coloured body. Bubbly ring to the rim of the surface. Modest malt-fruity aroma. Fruit and pale malty flavours with a papery like finish. Not that good (25.09.2014).

imdownthepub (13872) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 1, 2013
Cask conditioned at Harbury Beer Fest 13. Amber with no head. This proved to be on the thin side on the palate with a distinct caramel note and a boiled vegetable background. Sweetish throughout with a malty fruitiness. Not good today.
