Beyond the Pale is a pale golden bitter brewed with a touch of Amber Malt. Pronounced floral hop aroma from the inclusion of North American Cascade hops and a long, dry hoppy finish.

Cask conditioned gravity dispense Northants BF. A golden coloured beer with a sweet honeyish aroma with some added citrus. The taste is similar but the hops are more apparent. There’s a bit of sticky spiciness too.

Cask (Gallows Bird, Espoo, Real Ale Festival 2009)
Day 2: Sweet fruity and caramelly or toffee aroma. Fresh palate. Decent bittering and aromatic hops. Some graininess in the body too. Very easy quaffer. Easily drinkable. Hops build up over time, leaving a nice bitter finish. Good one.

(Cask@Gallows, Espoo) Slightly hazy golden with almost no head. Mild, citrusy aroma with pear and solventy hints. Flavor of citrusy, moderately bitter hops, and pale malt. Almost medium body with no carbonation. Reasonably fresh session ale, but nothing special.

MesandSim (7118) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 9, 2008
A Mes rate: Gravicask at Ealing Beer Festival.
Clean gold with no head. Full on grass and nettles in the aroma. It’s like being by a stream, really aromatic and spicy. Similar flavour but there is a kick of something in the finish that I can’t put my finger on but I know I don’t like. Good start, below par finish.

doubelknv3 (1056) - Illinois, USA - JUN 22, 2008
Tasting notes from 2004 Banbury beer festival. Golden, orange with frothy white head. Floral, citrus, and spice aroma notes. Had some characteristics of an APA. Citrus (grapefruit) dominates, with some sweet notes to tame it. However, a dry bitter finish.
