Gravicask (PBBF2012, Wed)
6 OK pale hoppy aroma, nothing jumps out.
3 Pale, brief head.
6 Gentle light barley malt. But only the barest minimum to be considered a proper beer.
4 Soft palate, carbonation low. A zesty lemon finish brightens up the experience.
13- A perfectly drinkable golden, but not inspiring me. Thank goodness for the finish, else this would have been drab.

Cask@GBBF2012. Yellowish golden colour with a minor white head. Aroma is citrus, some mild floral notes, nectar and some slight sweet maltyness. Flavour is rather malty with some slight citrus, nectar and honey as well. Pleasantly balanced, and good session beer.

HogTownHarry (6064) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - SEP 8, 2012
August 23, 2012 - handpull at The Craft Beer Co. Very pale clear gold/yellow, lots of tiny suspended white particles, small lasting foamy off-white head. Smells like gluten and grass, maybe a touch of heather, no alcohol. Taste is ... slightly honey-sweet, but mostly a standard grassy golden ale. Average body, mild carbonation, a not too sweet grassy light finish. Nothing special, not bad though.

StueyD (1137) - Heacham, Norfolk, ENGLAND - JUL 26, 2012
UPDATED: JUL 27, 2012 Pale yellow ale with a frothy white head. Strong citrus fruit aroma, plenty of lemons and grapefruits, with a little grassy element. Medium mouthfeel. Bucket loads of citrus fruit come through from the aroma, crisp lemon, grapefruit and that grassy element. There is also a hint of sweetness that gives the finish a well balanced flavour. Tasted at the 15th Lynn beer festival, Stuart House Hotel, King’s Lynn, Norfolk ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
