3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cask at the Walsall Beer Festival 2013. Poured a crystal clear yellow straw colour with a bubbly white head. The aroma is of caramel and butter. The flavour is weak bitter and malty with a creamy caramel palate. A super ale from Beowulf. Perfect for a session and great for any season too.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
First beer from this brewery for me, so no preconceptions (except expecting it to be a spring ale!) - appearance was very good, nice tight head on a golden / brown beer; aroma loses points because there was something not identifiable in it, not overly unpleasant but still detracted a little. At the end of the day though, for me it’s all about taste and this hit the spot, perhaps a little under-hopped for my preference but doubtless exactly what the brewer was after. Can imagine downing several of these without any trouble at all

Cask at The Old Joint Stock, Birmingham. Light straw coloured with a short head. Very hoppy citrus scent. Moderately bitter with a dry finish. Grapefruit and some tea present. Refreshing. Uncomplicated but I liked it.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A Mes rate: Gravicask at Reading Beer Festival.
A very pale gold colour. So pale in fact that if someone told me this was a perry I would believe them until I smelled it. Straw and hay and tea (thankfully not so much in the flavour) and a dry bitter finish. Erm... Next.
