Rich barley aroma, but quite muted. Rusty orange, small persistent head. Eww, cheesy hints in the taste, but not sour too fortunately. Watery palate. Dry and bitter, and not satisfying at all.

Gravicask, shared with Finn at St Albans Beer Festival. Cloudy golden coloured body. Bubbly ring to the rim of the surface. Modest malt-fruity aroma. Fruit and pale malty flavours with a papery like finish. Not that good (25.09.2014).

imdownthepub (11664) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 1, 2013
Cask conditioned at Harbury Beer Fest ’13. Amber with no head. This proved to be on the thin side on the palate with a distinct caramel note and a boiled vegetable background. Sweetish throughout with a malty fruitiness. Not good today.
