3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cask at the "Meet the Brewer" evening at La Gothique, Wandsworth Common, 4th Dec 09. Hazy amber looks. Aroma of cola cubes and cough sweets. Rather malty. Has the Ballard ’house’ character - similar to Wassail. Toffee malt tastes are balanced by a pronounced bitterness. Right weight and packs a lengthy finish. A best bitter that challenges the palate rather than mollycoddles it.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A Mes rate. Gravicask at Le Gothique.
A lovely copper colour with a thin but lasting bubbly white head. A straight forward drop of best really. Faint dusky sour notes, nice chalky dry feel with a good bitterness. Pleasant caramel in the finish with a pronounced nutty note. Fairly standard but very pleasant, even though it is growing old it’s still doing well. A decent best bitter.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Cask conditioned at Far from the Madding Crowd, Oxford. Amber to gold, hazed, with white head. Not the best bitter available, quite unbalanced with a perfumed strong hop note and a heavy, syrupy note. Struggling with this.
