COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask; Regular.
Finest quality pale malt carrying choicest west coast American hops to create a beautifully balanced pale ale. The aroma is fragrant, fruity. The flavours are mellow with hints of bubblegum and refreshing grapefruit. The finish is bittersweet, without being cloying.
This is consistently Abbeydale Brewery's biggest selling beer.
First brewed in 1996 it was designed as a premium pale bitter to show drinkers of a very big and old-established brewery's offering just what a beer could taste like... After a bit of name-calling and throwing of stones, it had no trouble in establishing a reputation as the genuine Sheffield Gold Beer. It is now available as a "regular" beer at a number of outlets in and around Sheffield.

<i>Gravity at The Doric Arch, London</i>
Hazy blond color with a greenish hue. Light hoppy aroma. It has a soft mouthfeel, mainly for the lack of carbonation, with a grassy malt flavor, light, and ordinary bitterness. Nothing special.
