On cask at the Willow Walk in London, Flame Runner is clear, burnt dark gold with a big bubbled white head.
Smell is yeast and phenolic, some grapefruit. Faintest hint of ginger.
Taste is hoppy, citrus and floral. Nice brightness, punchy.
Mouthfeel is slippery and light.
Drinkability is high, love the US west coast influenced hop bill twist on the traditional real ale, flavorful but sessionable. On of my favorites of the trip, the cask was too quick to blow for my taste!
