A Mes rate. Gravicask at Pigs Ear. An excellent clean mid amber colour with a thin white head and excellent condition. Well balanced white English bread like malt and some lovely faint tropical fruit notes. Delicate sweetness. Really good hint of caramel. Slight oxidised notes. Clean finish. Really good. Thanks Alex.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle @ YNWA, Kolding.
Pours a magnificient deep, metallic red with a giant, staying, creamy head. It is white, but there are tones of yellow and pink. Aroma is sweet, some red berries, red currants, peach, caramel, some apples. Full and creamy mouthfeel. Flavour is mild, actually a bit underwhelming. Some yeast - like Tongerlo actually. The fruitiness gets more apparent as it settles. Light cherry and marzipan. Quite nice, actually.

2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
No head, copper-foxy beer. Solvent, diacetyl, powerfull and imposing - and not pleasing. Sharp MF, not finished, worts in full fermentation, hence the diacetyl, etc. Slick, buttery MF... Finish the beer, please.

Cloudy amber color, poor head. Regular ale, grainy, a bit malty, sweetish, low bitterness. Enjoyable, correctly brewed but a bit simple.
