harrisoni (19548) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - AUG 17, 2007
Cask gravity at GBBF 2007. Copper, lasting beige head. Nutty. Like walnuts/Brazil nuts flavour. One of teh better bitters with nuts and restrained citrus. Fine.

imdownthepub (15525) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 2, 2007
Cask conditioned at The Wig & Pen, Sheffield. Gold amber with no head. The quality in this pub beggars belief, I had a poor day in Sheffield for quality, but this is the pits. Winey, tainted, yeasty and I’m sure its not the beer. Terrible.

Bottle at Craig’s. Pours clear amber, nose is soapy lemon, taste is dry, thin, dull toffee.

Rune (13748) - Tromsø, NORWAY - FEB 26, 2017
By gravicask at Chelmsford & Mid Essex Winter Beer Festival. Shared with Cunningham. Clear golden-brown coloured body. Naked at the top. Restrained aroma of earth and caramel. Blended taste of nuts, caramel and Citrus. Oily hops to a mild bitter ending. Okay, rather anonymous though (17.02.2017).
