Cask (3.4%), 1/2 pint, hand-pulled, State Bar, Glasgow, weak grassy, grain aroma, golden with a short-lived thin white head and some fine lacing, grassy, light herbal, oily, mild bitter herbal aftertaste.

Cask in the Tap Room, Lancaster. Pours golden with a thin white head. Some slightly plastic notes alongside more pleasant but mild grapefruit notes and a bitter finish. Thin and watery. I wasn’t much of a fan of this one.

Craft Clerkenwell. Cask. Clear gold beer, small white head. Palate is light and semi dry and a little crisp. Decent condition. Good light orange hops, little tangerine, light floralness - almost perfumey. Light crisp finish. Mild hop spice linger. Decent stuff.

Rune (13732) - Tromsø, NORWAY - OCT 1, 2014
Half, hand pulled cask ale, 3.4 % abv, at Craft Beer Co in Clerkenwell. Clear golden coloured body. No lace from a low white head. Modest taste of grapefruit. Pineapples and citrus peels to the taste buds followed by a fresh fruit bitter finish. Easy to drink without being diluted. Refreshing (London 23.09.2014).

Cask at Craft Beer Co in Clerkenwell. Aroma wasn’t the strongest but a great taste, the cascade hops come through really strongly leaving an earthy, herbaceous beer with a pleasant tang in the finish. Enjoyable.

Cask at Old Red Cow, Barbican, 29/6/2012. 3.4%. Golden, light head. Light, spicy, aroma and a sort of unroasted coffee / vegetabley aroma. Unusual coffee bean taste dominant, with some tangy grapefruit hop tastes. Strange, but pleasant, with light bitter finish.

superflyguy (439) - Leeds, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUN 1, 2012
decent enough but not really flavoured to my palate. something a bit too damp and woody, like long forgotten cellars. looked good: deep bronze with slight off white head. there was some fruit: grapefruit and pineapple but not enough to overcome the woodiness. i think it must be me, but Cascade generally doesn’t do it for me. cask. blind jacks. knaresborogh.

Cask, Ncl BF. Dry, fruity and pale.Good grapefruit note in the aroma, flavoursome for a low ABV, some very faint smoke late and a nice sharp finish.

Caak @ Red Squirrel 270312
Amber orange, frothy white head, lots of static bubbles
Aroma of light lemon bit of cake mix
Taste of lemon, bit of lemon meringue pie, slight lime...wow the flavour for 3.4%..lemon bitterness takes over after drinking a bit clouding initial taste
Palate - soft to medium carb, thin body. Finish very dry, much more bitterness comes thorough then cleans off palate
Overall - so much flavour for 3.4% but eventually masked by the bitter finish

cgarvieuk (26365) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 28, 2012
cask at Red Squirel ... amber ... thin light off white head ... light dry toffee lemon nose ... soft sweet roast ... juicy malts ... lemon peel bittr linger ... decent enugh
