COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask; Regular.
A 4.2% copper-coloured beer with an aroma of roasted malt and a hint of passion fruit. The use of English Marris Otter pale malt, crystal malt and wheat malt produces a full-bodied, malty flavour which is enhanced by the citrus notes of American Cascade hops. The bitterness of English Target hops fades with the maltiness to result in a dry, nutty finish.

Rune (13200) - Tromsø, NORWAY - FEB 27, 2016
Half from cask at Brunswick Inn. Shared with Finn. A filmy layer on top of a next to clear golden-brown body. Modest malt accented aromas with hints of fruity hops. Malt-fruity flavours, marmalade impression. Resinous bitterness to the ending. Slightly watered in the mouth. Pretty straightforward (Derby 15.02.2016).

BlackHaddock (7518) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - SEP 19, 2012
A beautiful sunny afternoon on Friday 7th September 2012 saw my father and I join in R.A.T.2012 (Rail Ale Trail part 2). Split between three bars along the Wolverhampton to Shrewsbury railway line: they had over 50 different beers to try: this was one of them. Half-pint, gravity fed in the fest tent behind Codsall Railway Station. Really liked this: good light amber body; with a good head of off-white foam sat on top. Mixed bag of aromas, floral, semi-sweet molasses and woodyards. The taste was on the maltier side than hoppy although a hop bitterness was never far away. Well balanced and easy to drink, ideal on the day I reviewed it.

rosenbergh (11682) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUN 17, 2011
Cask at Thurrock Beer Festival 2011, Grays, England.
Clear copper colour with tiny white head. Dark dry hops and malty woody in aroma. Dry dark hoppy bitterness in flavour. Long-lasting bitterness in aftertaste. Not that interesting.

chriso (7583) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 22, 2011
Cask at GBBF, day 3 on 3 August 2006. Amber colour tending towards copper. Some citric, slightly resinous hop accents (I now see it uses Cascade) in the flavour. The hops are less prominent in the aroma. Decent enough. The hops are fine, just used rather too sparingly.

3.5
Svesse (8694) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - JUN 6, 2010
(Cask at Market Porter, Southwark, London, 19 May 2010) Amber colour with frothy, beige head. Malty, fruity nose with dried fruit, earthy hops and hints of sulphur. Fruity, hoppy taste with notes of citrus, a solid malt foundation and lots of earthy hops in the finish. Medium body, balanced sweetness. Tasty and very well balanced bitter.

2.9
sm89walt (2073) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - JUL 4, 2009
Cask - The Murderers, Norwich. Pours a clear, dark amber with a thin and loose white head. Red fruits, citrus and some floral notes on the nose. Caramel, vinuous flavours: berry and sharp fruits with delicate hints of alcohol. Medium body, average length finish. Oddly different.
