Bottle from Meny Manglerud as Geltsdale Tarn
Golden, white head. Smells of malts, grassy hops, some grain. Light sweet, lacks ale flavor, feels almost like a lager, quite dry. Moderate to medium bitter, grassy hops and some english hops as well. A strange brew

Palme (4181) - Bergen, NORWAY - MAR 26, 2013
0.5l bottle as Geltsdale - Tarn. Assuming that is this one? Anyhow, it pours a crystal clear golden body with a really small big-bubbled just off-white top. The aroma is soft grainy, malt-sweet with few traces of canned pears. Doesn’t really smell all that much this, but what I get of the aroma is nice enough. The mouthfeel is really thin and watery while the carbonation level is above average. Pilsner-like flavors with an extreme grainy aftertaste! Almost a little metallic in flavor. Soft floral, some thin watery caramel and not much more really. A nice soft light fruity bitterness towards the finish before the enormous grainy flavor kicks in the aftertaste. Not horrible, just not that great either. 18.02.2013

On cask at The Paisley Beer Festival. Pours a lemon yellow colour with a fair white head. Aroma of lemon, caramel, yeast and alcohol. Similar flavours with mild carbonation and an oily mouth-feel.

cgarvieuk (21874) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - OCT 26, 2007
Cask Halfway house Edinburgh ... Hmm an odd one this ... Amber coloured ... Sweet fruity apple nose ... Again apples in flavour cox’s pippins ... little sherberty ... very juicy with a tart finnish ... despite apple tones it not cider like. I found this wonderfully refreshing, and distinctly unusual.

harrisoni (17352) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - MAY 18, 2007
Cask gravity at Reading BF. Pale copper with thin white head. Odd, but drinkable English bitter, decent hop/malt balance. Better than average. Good session bitter.

Mungo (2470) - Southampton, Hampshire, ENGLAND - MAY 9, 2007
Gravity Cask @ Reading Beer Festival 07. Lagery malt and a little sulphur. Mild grassy hops. Pleasant enough but not great.

MesandSim (7117) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 9, 2007
A Mes rate: Gravicask @ Reading Beer Festival. Dark golden blonde. Citric hoppy nose with unfortunately some tea in the flavour that is just about saved by some very sharp hops. Finish is more of the same. Drinkable but damn the hops are sharp!
