Cask at GBBF 08. Still, clear amber. Bland aroma and flavour. Tastes weaker than it is. I guess you could call it an achievement to make a 5% beer this lacking in flavour.

gravicask @ kingston bf 08. Nose of nettles, herbs, metal and chalk. deep copper colour, no head to talk about. Caramel, toffee and tons of herbs (sage, coriander, nettles, daffodils..) in the middle, good bitter finish. lovely pint even though it tastes a bit free-range oranic and green-alternative.

50cl bottle from Tesco, Alfreton. Gold with a thick creamy off-white head; rich fruity malt aroma; rich chewy malt flavours too, but slightly stewed; with good hops to balance; finish is rather caramel sweet though. Good in parts.

Counting house. Aroma gives a good hearty chewy malt base with peppery hop resins. Taste is again balanced richer malt character with good hop character balancing, only thing missing is a bit of body, which couldn infact be due to over venting.

A Mes rate: Cask at Baker Street ’Sporks.
Clean dark brown with a decent off white head and spotty lace. Pleasant malty base that has a really nice vanilla sweetness to it. Nice coffee with two sugars note too and a balancing hoppy finish with some more vanilla. Chewy and nutty. Pretty good stuff.
