On tap at The Black Sheep, Dublin. Dark red with slight white head. Light fruity aroma. Light bodied citrussy tropical fruit taste. Nice finish. A little watery overall

Deu (948) - Nantes, FRANCE - MAR 14, 2015
Tasting Tray in Dublin. Amber with white head. Fuller malt notes for this beer, but still carrying a good, healthy, hop wallop. Tropical fruits to the fore, a bit like a tropical fruit punch. Some sweetness, lasting on the palate. Decent.

3.1
culchiem (4015) - Berlin, GERMANY - MAR 9, 2014
Draught. Mahogany with a thin head. Aroma is nutty malt. Flavor is burnt wood, malty with a dry bitter hop base. Not really like an English Bitter but nice to drink.

Cask (handpump) @ NWAF 2013, National Winter Ales Festival, The Venue, Sheridan Suite, Manchester, England.

Clear medium to dark red - orange amber color with a small, frothy - fizzy, fair lacing, mostly diminishing, off-white head. Aroma is moderate malty, nutty, caramel, moderate hoppy, orange - citrus, sweet fruit, wood. Flavor is moderate to heavy sweet and bitter with a long duration, glue, wood, nutty. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is flat. [20130124]

Finn (7547) - Tromsø, NORWAY - FEB 16, 2014
NWAF 25 Jan 13. Mørk gylden. 0 skum. Frisk fruktaroma. Plommer. Myk munnfølelse. Litt fjøs-smak. Avslutter tørt. Ikke god.

3.3
Creedence (312) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 17, 2013
Cask at Franciscan Well Winter Ale Festival. A - interesting asparagus, grass, hay. A - amber, foamy cream head. T - lots of green veg, grass, light bitter hops. P - light-medium body, lingering sourness, some slight off flavours. O - very interesting, but a little underwhelming. Will have to try it again though.

Rune (12947) - Tromsø, NORWAY - FEB 12, 2013
From cask by hand-pump at NWAF ’13, shared with Finn. Fading white, bubbly head leaving spotty lacing down the glass. Clear amber body. Smell of earthy malts, hints of caramel. Flavoured with tropical fruits, moments of spices and half-sweet malts follow by a short, bittersweet tail. Rather thin on the swallow. Acceptable (Manchester, 25.01.2013).
