Watercress Line Real Ale Train 1/6/13. Not entirely disagreeable amber coloured ale- an interesting almost indescribable flavour somewhere in the middle- a sort of very faintly smoky/meaty/umami sort of flavour. Maybe slightly sulphurous, but not in a bad way. Pleasant without being exceptional.

Cask at the Equinox Beer Festival at the Rose & Crown, Sandhurst. Pale amber with a ring of white head; curious, slightly spicy aroma; and a sweet, pleasant, floral taste; then a dry finish with a definite touch of elderflower.

Gravicask, shared by Finn, half-pint. Golden body, headless. Fresh floral fruity smell. Hoppy vibe with grapefruits and lemon. Nice bitter ending. Thin to medium bodied. Likable (Redhill Beer Festival, 02.11.2012).

Golden in colour, light, hoppy, with the aroma and sweetness from the elderflower. A marvellous pint that you could drink all day...

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask at the Southampton Arms, London on 23rd July 2013. Amber with thin ring-and-film and almost no lacing. Floral hop and elderflower aromas. Fruity and floral in-mouth, with sweet elderflower, and lemon tang which extends into fruity finish. The eventual finish is somewhat grainy and bittersweet, and the mouthfeel is slightly zingy. Rated as a novelty beer.

Cask@ Belfast Beer Fest 2011.
Fresh elderflower nose on this golden beer and plenty of flavour despite its modest 3.5% ABV. Good bitter finish from the green bullet hops. Gentle carbonation. Used to be my session beer when I lived in Southampton and just as good with the reduced ABV.
