Cask at the Otter’s Pocket, Stamford. Nice juicy sweet flavour with a sharp spicy bitterness in the finish. I thought it was pleasantly rich on the palate.

Bottle. Tawny with some carbonation but not overpoweringly so. Slight bitterness but overall an inoffensive rather ordinary bitter.

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.

Bottle. Poured a real dark copper colour, plenty of fruit in the aromas, loads of hops. A very good beer wish I had another bottle to try at the same time. good stuff.
