Cask at Bricklayers Arms Yorskhire Festival 09. Buttery/caramelly diacetyl on aroma. OK in mouth, decent hop on finish. Butter goes through it. Rest of beer is a decent bitter. Proper bitterness on finish. Get rid of the diacetyl and this would be pretty good.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Cask (gravity dispense) at the Bricklayers Arms Yorkshire beer festival, February 2009. Amber with loose head. Decent appearance. Rather buttery aroma. Better flavour, in a fairly traditional bitter style - dry malt and earthy hops, with moderate bitterness. Overall, not great because of the aroma.

A Mes rate: gravicask at the Bricklayers Arms.
Attractive clean mid gold with a thin white head and reasonable condition. Lovely fruity hop aroma and good pale malt to back it up. Sadly there’s a fair bit of diacetyl. The flavour is much better. Excellent malt, with a really good dusty bitterness in the finish. Fantastic length. Really good mouthfeel, loads of body. Without the diacetly in the aroma, this would be stunning.
