2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
First tasted this at the Paisley Beer Festival in April 1997. Cask, handpump dispense. Clear gold in colour with a thin white head. Slight dusty hop in the short floral aroma. Thin resiny mouthfeel and good lacing. Pale malts give a digestive biscuit background with tart citric fruit notes of lemon and lime. Strong hop resins add a dry bitter aftertaste. Astringency builds up towards the dry pithy finish. An ok Golden Ale.

Cask in the Sultan Oct 2008. Rather a let down. It says it has a new improved recipe but it tasted medicinal. Last years was slightly better. Flowery, golden colour. Weak for hop back

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cask - Slightly hazy straw golden body, lasting creamy white head; Not to big but beautiful balanced earthy hoppy nose; Very soft textured body, balanced hoppy bitter and sweet, the bitterness grow seriously and makes the finish quite dry, lots of hop aroma, some flowery sweetness. Very nice!

Cask @ Charlie’s Pub, Cph.
Pours clear golden with a small bubbly white head. Good duration. Very mild aroma, light sweet maltiness and weak hops. Low carbonation. Flavour is sweet and flowery at first, lightly hopped and a little thin. Rather dull.

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
This is a drain pour for me, weak aroma, lousy malts and bad hop aromas make this an unworthy drinking beer.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
The aroma is watery with light wheat and light hops. The appearance is light gold with a thin head. The flavor is like the aroma. The palate is watery. Overall it’s got a lot of flaws but it’s not bad.

A Mes rate: Gravicask at Nottingham Beer Festival.
Nice bright gold with a thin blonde head. Hoppy aroma with slight sulphur and black pepper. Odd but pretty tasty. Almost meaty. Some spice, ginger and strong rosemary and black pepper. Nice hoppage and malt with a dusty tobacco and jacket potato finish. Odd but I like it.
