harrisoni (12674) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - MAY 15, 2007
Cask gravity at Reading BF 2007. Gold with lasting white head. Fragrant hop aroma. Litlle bit soft may, but sherberty hop is tasty. I liked it, very sessionalbe, I like the hop, some US hop maybe. Very drinkable and the barrel had just come on. Good to see Bowman coming out of the ashes of the Cheriton brewery which was always fantastic. The Quiver though is better.

MesandSim (7119) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 8, 2007
A Mes rate: Gravicask @ Reading Beer Festival. Lovely hoppy nose. Golden blonde colour. Very citric, almost too much with a bitter finish. Not bad at all for what it is. Sessionable for sure.

Mungo (2472) - Southampton, Hampshire, ENGLAND - JAN 30, 2007
Cask conditioned @ Guide Dog, Soton. Hop aromas more prominent - slightly fruity and grassy. Malt sweeter and juicier but less flavoursome. Nice but not so good as the test tipple to my taste. 3.4
Takeaway from Gravity cask @ Bitter Virtue. This was the test brew released as ’Test Tipple’, the hop back took longer to drain than expected resulting in a dryer hoppier finish - too good to pour down the drain but not what the brewers were looking for. This had a nice fresh hoppy nose which fades quickly. Flavoursome biscuity dry malts. Moderate bitterness and good hoppy flavours in the dry finish. Very drinkable and more to my taste than the finished article! 3.8
