2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Cask at the Gallows Bird XVI Real Ale Festival, Espoo, Finland.
Clear deep golden colour with almost no head.
Window cleaner, floral hops and... hmm... Not much more really.
Flavour is sweet hoppy with lots of dryness... that's a bit strange. Hoppy. Thin. One dimensional. Drinkable.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
(Cask at Gallows Bird Real Ale Festival ’13) The beer poured deep golden and clear. Its head small and white. Aroma had fruitiness, sweetness and malts. Palate was medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were fruitiness, sweetness, malts and bitterness. Aftertaste was hoppy and bitter. A good but a bit unbalanced beer.

Pleasantly floral nose with kiwi, rosehip and plain old lemon notes. Pours a hazy medium gold with a thin but persistant head. Flavour is big, bold and fat with juicy, spicy notes of pine and grapefruit underpinned by a hint of sugarpuffs. Very nice.

Gravicask (PBBF2012, Fri)
Herbal grassy aroma. Rich orange, small brief head. Fairly aggressive bitterness, grassy, a bit astringent and grapefruity. Does have some sweetish malts though. Soft palate, carbonation low. Long grassy bitter finish. A pretty good old-fashined bitter bitter.
