DruncanVeasey (7999) - NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - NOV 19, 2007
Nettle-accented leafy hop aroma. Straw hued beer pillowed with white froth. Grapefruit citrus bitterness with slivers of applepeel giving way to a long, smothering freshbread finish. Made everything else after taste bland in comparison. Pleasantly hoppy brew, but not quite up to their usual standards. Cask, Knickersby ’Spoons.

Cask at ’Spoons, Milton Keynes, Wetherspoons Festival ’07. Gold with a small white head. Floral hop aroma. gentle citric taste with a biscuity background and a low bitter finish. Not bad, but nothing special.

MesandSim (7117) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 6, 2007
A Mes rate: Cask at Baker Street ’Sporks.
Golden with a reasonable white head. Light hoppy nose with elderflower and a harsh medicinal note. Tobacco flavour with a little citrus and an all too apparant metallic tang, especially in the finish. Pretty rough.

Mungo (2471) - Southampton, Hampshire, ENGLAND - NOV 6, 2007
Cask conditioned @ Giddy Bridge (JDW), Soton. Pale with a bit of citrus flavour and pretty drinkable but on the whole seems slightly lacklustre, especially in comparison to the Oakham Gravity I had immediately before.

harrisoni (17146) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JUL 8, 2005
Cask at Ship and Mitre, Liverpool Had just been to the Baltic Fleet home of the Wapping brewery and this beer was everything they were trying to be and just failing slightly. This is golden, clear, fresh, refreshing with lots of citrus flavours and acids and hops on the end. Good in mouth with long lasting finish of grapefruit
