downender (7925) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - DEC 14, 2012
Cask-conditioned at the North Yorkshire beeriodical, the Seven Stars, Bristol 13/12/2012. Deep gold with a slight white head. Decent session beer, with some hedgerow fruits, a touch of sweetness upfront and moderately bitter finish. Fine.

imdownthepub (13233) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 2, 2012
Cask conditioned at Harbury Beer Fest ’12. Hazy gold with no head. Quite a honeyed beer, sweetish and slightly heavy on the palate. A subtle fruitiness works its way through. Not bad.

MesandSim (7117) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 20, 2008
A Mes rate: Gravicask at the Pembury.
Golden brown with no head. Very hoppy aroma that is clearly full of dry hopping. Really grassy and floral with a strong wheaty note. The flavour is massively soapy and it spoils the decent fruity hops that you can just about pick out. Heavy chlorine and bleach in the finish. Pretty rank.

anders37 (23044) - Malmö, SWEDEN - JUL 9, 2008
Cask @ Charlies Bar, Copenhagen. Pours a slightly hazy pale yellow color with a small white head. Fruity slightly hoppy aroma. Fruity malty flavor with some grassy hoppy hints.. Sweetish malty finish with some bitterness in the aftertaste.

Ungstrup (34350) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAY 28, 2008
Cask at Charlie’s Bar, Copenhagen as Hambleton Schooner at 4.3% ABV. A hazy golden beer with a rocky off-white head. The aroma is freshly hoppy giving it notes of grass and flowers, combined with notes of brewmash, like walking in the brewhouse right after brewing. The flavor is sweet and very fruity - with hints of diacethyl, leading to a dry bitter finish with fruity notes of peaces lingering. The body is thin.

harrisoni (17282) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - SEP 3, 2007
Cask gravity at Ashford Rugby Club BF 2007. Hazy copper colour with lasting beige head. Some rubber and some red berry fruit in mouth. Yes, just not right. I do not think that it is infected, but either not quite ready yet or the malt was not fully brewed out.
