Brewed with three varieties of hop and dry hopped with a fourth Fist Full is rich amber with an almost mouth puckering dryness balanced with a subtle fruitiness. It has a long hoppy and fruity aftertaste. Our favourite so far!

ManVsBeer (8769) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - AUG 2, 2012
Well hopped flavours as expected, also with a little fruit evident, but not as much in its aroma. Has a fair bitterness about it too.

Scopey (12711) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 26, 2011
Gravicask at the Bricklayers Arms Derby Beer Fest. It pours golden yellow, with a thin white head. The nose is resin, light cheese, pine, oily hop and sweet lemonade. The taste is oily, resin, pine, hop bite, tangy citrus and lemon soap, with a decent bitter-dry finish. Light body and soft carbonation. Flavoursome and well balanced. Good job!

Leighton (18714) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 25, 2011
Gravity cask at The Bricklayers Arms Derby BF, London. Pours a light, red-gold with a bubbly, white head. Mild toasty pine aroma, some ripe citrus notes. Great flavor. Immense balance and a great sesioner. Medium sweet with good bitterness, mild toast, leaves, citrus. Light bodied with fine carbonation. Mild tangy citrus hops in the finish, some light spice, light pine resin, mild toasty malts. Excellent stuff.

Cask at Derby Festival ’08. Gold with a small white head. Floral hop aroma. Sweet fruity taste, some citrus. Quite a sharp, dusty bitterness to finish.

Rastacouere (6174) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 3, 2007
Nice 2cm white foam covers the clearish pure gold pour. Beautiful condition this one. More geared towards bitterness than aromatic hoppiness, but nicely herbal and quite spicy, floral hop attack takes one the delicate bready, soft hay-like malts. Not complex, but not simple either. Delicious mouthfeel with a certain creaminess to it. Very good one.
