3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cask@GBBF 04’. You can always count on Crouch Vale. After a relatively poor run on English beer, me and ChrisO decided to go for this little number. Nothing fancy, just nice, solid, fresh and hoppy. Some subtle lychee and lemon fruit, nice dry, medium bitter finish, very more-ish, and very well balanced.

A Mes rate: Gravicask at Reading Beer Festival.
pale gold colour. Lip smacking citric hops with some good earthy malt and a bitter finish. It’s a Crouch Vale golden ale, does exactly what it says on the tin. Not their best but still jolly good stuff.

cask at paisley beer fest, pours blonde nose is spicey like a gewertztraminer grapefruit, honey flower, spice pepper and other. taste all equals the nose but is a bit watery for my taste on the palate. great spicyness to this ale though.

Cask at The Wenlock Arms. Citrus hop aroma. Misty gold color with white head. Great citrus start, turns a bit towards stone fruit, malt barely detectable. Nice, semi-dry, bitter finish.

More than just a Golden, it had some special and nice features. The foam is good and the way I like it.

4.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Cask at Peterborough BF ’06. Gold with a white head. Aroma of hops followed by a grapey, citrus taste that made this one of the festival highlights for me. Late surge of bitterness completes an excellent package.
