Cask gravity, ’All Creatures Great and Small’ festival, The Merchant’s Inn, Drugby. Headless red amber. Beeswaxy oak aroma. Slick, mellow and oaky with wholemeal, faint chocolate and butter biscuit, some honey coated wheat. Odd but good.

Draught (Carlton Arms, Cambridge)
Between orange and red, no head. Sweet coffee aroma, something savoury too. Taste is mysteriously coffee-like too and also that odd savoury flavour I can’t place. Leaves a brown finish - some nuttiness.

Gravity @ 32nd Cambridge Beer Festival, UK. 25th May 2005
Amber. Hoppy flowery aroma. Good balanced and smooth taste. Fairly close to Brakspears Bitter. Easy and fresh aftertaste with a hint of manure (in a positive way!).

Cambridge Beer Festival. Gravity. Brand new brewery, just opened in Cambridge. As far as I’m aware this is the first beer offered by Moonshine, and this came on for the first time while I was there. So I am one of the very first to have a beer from this brewery. Well, it’s a darkish caramel coloured best bitter with caramel notes and a pleasant dusting of hops. A decent enough old school style best bitter. Mmmm. Gets better.
