Thanet Easter Beer Fest. The Winter Gardens, Margate. Amarillo hops, so this succeeds on that alone. Awesome hop! Wow! Lovely fruit surge. One of the best beers of the festival. Very yummy indeed.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Cask, Turf Tavern, Oxford. Used penny copper with a small sticky layer of fine off-white. Nose of spicy warm tropical places--passionfruit, mangos, cinnamon. Flavor is sun-ripened pink grapefruit, a bit of honeydew mellon finish. A hop centric bitter, but the malt seems to round things out nicely and lowering the frequency of the whole to a satisfying level. (From soprano bitter to an alto bitter.) Very nice.

A Mes rate: Gravicask at Planet Thanet 2008.
Dark copper coloured. Glorious hoppy aroma with lovely barley, awesome notes of ginger and some slight orange. The Amarillo shows through really well in the flavour with some nice earthy malt and a gloriously bitter finish. Bags of flavour and character, gorgeous spicy notes. Stunning stuff for a 3.8% beer and a top drawer all day drinker drop of English.

Dark orange with fuzzy head, lovely aroma of pineapple, citrus, caramel and a hint of cloves. Good taste, bitter with some fruity sweetness. Very strong taste for such a mild beer.

Pours a dense black with a two-finger head. Stunning lacing. Well-balanced esthery scent, with notes of tartness and chocolate. Sexy piney palate, with walnuts and corn. Creamy mouthfeel and dry finish.

3.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hand pulled at the Wellington, Birmingham. Brown bitter, with a slim head. Nice crispy hops, good fragrance. The initial hit gives way to a malt mintiness, and quite a long bitterness to finish. Peters out slightly, but still an enjoyable flagon of ale.
