3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask conditioned at Far From the Madding Crowd, Oxford. Gold with white head. There is a light, biscuity malt in this carrying a juicy, lemon hop note, rather like a souped up Saaz note. Good bitterness and reasonable depth of flavour, there is a light, not unpleasant tart note to finish off. Decent.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
A Mes rate. Gravicask at the Junction Tavern.
Perfectly clean yellow gold and guess what? No head what so ever. Bloody useless Junction. Big assertive lemon sherbet hops all round. Very little else going on but damn this is good. It’s approaching Hophead territory. Juicy as hell but dry and bitter with just a pinch of sourness. Excellent faint lick of pale malt in the finish to add just a touch of balancing sweetness to all the bitter lemon. Bloody excellent. If the Junction could manage to squeeze some f**king condition into there beers this would be up there with the very best. As it is, in this condition, I’ll have to stick with bloody excellent.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Cask at the Live & Let Live, Cambridge, England on 15th August 2009. This review refers to the 4.4% version of this ale, known as "Pretoria". Gold with lasting off-white foamy head. A little initial yeastiness (earth) followed by a refreshingly crisp hoppiness making the beer more-ish. A dry bitter finish on a slightly textured mouthfeel afforded by good condition. A delicious session ale.
