Draft at GBBF 2013, day 4 - London. Pours clear yellow-gold with a light, creamy white head. The nose holds light doughy white bread. Light sweet flavor with doughy malts, some buttery notes, mild grains, white bread, hay. Light bodied with fine carbonation. Finishes with faint buttery and doughy pale malts, slight bitter hay, more white bread. Very meh.

GBBF Day 3. Cask. The annual Harrisoni/madmitch76 walkabout. Clear amber beer, small bubbly white head. Palate is light and mildly crisp. Light caramel and a touch of paper in the malts. Touch of dried fruits. Light finish. The nice condition on this beer struggles to elevate some fairly bland flavours.

Cask at the Prince Albert, Ely. Golden brown with a fluffy white head. Scent of nuts, wet bark, autumn berries. Fruity, woody taste with a drying bitter, slightly turpentiny finish. Pretty good.

Fin (8574) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 21, 2014
UPDATED: DEC 22, 2014 Cask at The Empress, Romsey Town area of Cambridge, Saturday 20th December 2014. Pours clear amber good clarity. Flat and boring. I never had high hopes for this beer but still disappointed as it is at best a below average effort. To be fair to the pub it is in good nick, its just a bit poor really. A6 A4 T5 P2 Ov10 2.7

Gravicask, shared with Finn at St Albans Beer Festival. Bright dark golden coloured body. Vanishing beige head, fragile lacing. Fruity hops on the nose with hints of vegetables. Mild malt-fruity taste partially overrun by boiled vegetables. Thin to medium bodied. Not that great, possible to drink. (25.09.2014).

Cask@gallows bird real ale festival 2014. Yellow orange. Soft buttery, corny malts, some sweetness. Had citrus also, but overall quite malty, and with a nuance I didn’t appreciate much.

Cask at the Stockton Ale and Arty Beer Fest. Golden ale with a small white head. So,e pineapple notes, but a bit bland and watery. Not too bad considering the ABV. Quite refreshing.
