Cask: Status uncertain. Cold filtered in bottles.
A great golden beer with a fresh citrus, hoppy aroma. This wonderful wholesome organic ale has a dry and bitter finish which brings you right back to earth.

ante (3374) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - APR 12, 2007
Cask at Akkurat, Stockholm. Hazy golden with a white frothy head. Vague aroma of lemon, soap and raw yeast. Medium-bodied with flavours of straw, soap and grapefruit. Finishes really dry of grapefruit and grass.

MesandSim (7119) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 7, 2007
A Mes rate: Gravicask @ Planet Thanet. Dusty old hops and malt. Like an old pub that has seen many years of action. Lovely vanilla malt in the mouth. Good balance. Interesting and tasty.

Ungstrup (29333) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - APR 3, 2007
Cask at GBBF 2006. A dark yellow beer with a rim of beige head. The aroma is very lightly hoppy, while there is much more power in the flavor, with strong notes of aroma hops which gives it notes of grass - as a really fresh hoppy beer. The end has an OK bitterness to it.

DruncanVeasey (7191) - NUNEATON, Top 18, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - MAR 13, 2007
Bottled. Hopsack snout with a sniff of green apple. Lagery gold pour with white froth. Opens with some caramel maltiness, develops a soapy citrus bitterness and finishes with a punishing dryness. Bitterness units off the scale. Leaning towards an intensely bitter, fruity German Pilsener. But that overstated quinine-bitter finish is more shampoo than hop, and ruins any balance or complexity this beer may aspire to.

bluekuma (94) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 27, 2007
Bottle. Yellow/gold hued with lasting thin white head. Faint citrus nose. Full & juicy on the palate, good citric hop presence and something vaguely metallic. Very dry, dusty bitter finish.

Doppelganger (1388) - Dry County, Arkansas, USA - FEB 19, 2007
Gravity, Merton BF. Yellow gold with a touch of off-white bubbles. Aroma of berry sweetness, a little fresh cut grass. Slightly chewy berry hop flavor, a touch of malt sweetness. Solid beer, but for me it somehow manages to be slightly less than the sum of its parts. (Really funny to see "chewy" in Glenn’s rating too. I didn’t discuss tasting notes...really!)

imdownthepub (10276) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 18, 2007
Cask conditioned at Merton Beer Fest 07. Light gold in colour with fine white head. Good full flavoured bitter with plenty of citrus hops notes and yes everyone, quite chewey (Steve Mathews I belive) in the amount of flavour. Dry and fruity finish, a very good British beer, well done Bath.

rauchbier (3610) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - JAN 7, 2007
Bottle, from ASDA. Gold, thin but lasting white head and gentle condition. Good earthy citrus and floral hop aromas, quite dry and citrusy in the mouth with a slight yeastiness and bitter hops that linger into the finish.

TheGrandMaster (2334) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - JAN 2, 2007
Bottle, pours a clear golden colour with a thin white head and some carbonation in the glass. A slightly citrus hoppy aroma I find common in a lot of organic golden ales. An easy mouthfeel and a smoothness that is a little buttery. Slightly hoppy, but pretty low on any flavours, and just a touch of bitterness in the finish, which leaves a little bit of citrus in the mouth. Nothing too special for me, though did get better through the glass.

berkshirejohn (4532) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - DEC 18, 2006
Bottle: the commercial description is spot on - a golden beer, traces of white head;hoppy aroma; citrus taste; bitter finish. My favorite style, and an excellent example.
