DruncanVeasey (7423) - NUNEATON, CONF N, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - NOV 2, 2009
Cask handpull, The Star, Bath. Bright lacing yellow with a collapsing white lid. Slight citric and hay aroma joined by grass and soapy bitterness, vomit, nuts and vanilla on the palate. Butter in a good way, digestive crumbs, rub of celery. Not much to it.

asheft (2655) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 28, 2009
[cask] Weak caramel and toffee aroma with a weak apple note. Almost clear copper with a lacy, white, thin top. Relatively bitter caramel flavour with slight lemon and floral hops. Uninteresting. Light to medium body, low carbonation, moderately bitter finish.

Quack-Duck (8382) - Down South, GERMANY - FEB 22, 2009

MesandSim (7117) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 27, 2008
A Mes rate: gravicask at Twickenham beer festival.
Clean dark gold with a decent white head and pretty good condition. A rather pleasant almost lambic like lemony sourness in the nose. There is certainly nothing wrong with it though, just a very good sharp citric bite. It seems very much intended. A really good biscuit malt base. The flavour is pretty similar. A slight vegetable note lingers that I’m not too sure about but it kinda reminds me of Lowlander vegetable crisps, which I like, so I’ll deal with it. Big fruity finish with a well pitched sweetness. Decent beer.

Mungo (2471) - Southampton, Hampshire, ENGLAND - APR 29, 2008
Cask conditioned @ Star Inn, Bath. Light copper. Solid malt feel and unadventurous but tasty leafy hops well balanced.
