A beautifully hopped very pale (in colour) ale from a bottle sourced locally in Cambridge. Becomes smoother the more you sip it - very nice. Rated by BrewTom

Bottle - Fantastic zesty, lemony aroma as soon as the lid came off. Poured clear with a small frothy head. Good malt base with wonderful aromatic hop flavours with a slight hint of sweetness. A good dry finish. I would agree with a previous reviewer that this is right up there in terms of taste and quality with some Thornbridge’s best. Would love to try this on cask.

Gravicask (CWAF2013, Fri)
Mandarin aroma, zesty. Refreshing session bitter. Fresh citrus taste. Lovely finish of citrus, hint of lemon, bit of peach. Good stuff, and a great golden - right alongside Thornbridge and Oakham’s best. And at 3.7% it’s a true session ale. I recommended this to many punters, and they all were very grateful!
