3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Filtered bottle. Golden coloured with a slight white head. Plenty of hoppy, grapefruit aromas. Citrus hops continue in the flavour, supported by some fruity malt. Finish was long and dry. One of the best British bottled beers I have had.

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.

3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.

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.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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 Glennís rating too. I didnít discuss tasting notes...really!)
