Leighton (21256) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 4, 2013
Cask at CBC - Clerkenwell, London. Pours clearish gold with a fine, white foam head. Soggy dough aroma. Light sweet flavor with some dry hay and dough. Light bodied with fine carbonation. Mild dryness to finish with wet white bread, modest soggy grains. Not great.

Cask at the Craft, Clerkenwell - 08/02/13, thanks to Leighton for the pour. Lightly hazed pale golden with a thin white head. Nose is apples, summer fruits, light hops, pale malt, pears. Taste follows, grass, pale malt, non discernable fruit notes. Medium in body, moderate carbonation, light bitterness in the finish. Sub par - have had a few Tyne Bank offerings and this is way below the others!

Rune (12795) - Tromsø, NORWAY - AUG 8, 2012
A half pint, cask ale at Mr. Foleys Cask Ale House in Leeds. Clear, copper coloured body. Dissipating white head. Aroma is grass fruity, as well as notes of apricot. Sweet fruity taste profile offset by bittersweet hops towards the ending. Has got its moments of enjoyments (11.07.2012).

ManVsBeer (10470) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - OCT 10, 2012
Slight malts in the aroma but not much. Has a lovely clean golden colour and crisp clean texture to match. Subtle blend of fruits and bitterness as advertised.

stravale (3065) - Co. Westmeath, IRELAND - SEP 12, 2012
Cask @ Bramling Arms, Gosforth 080912
Pale yellow, bit hazy, thin fluffy white head, good lacing
Aroma - light pale fruits, touch of honey malt
Taste - soft fruity hops, light honey, light pale malt backbone
Palate - light body, texture bit oily, quite sweet palate. Finish a bit dry, as main flavour, light honey, then fairly bitter, dryish linger
Overall - Pretty nice, but a bit too much honey for a 3.9% beer for me
