cask conditioned at Far from the Madding Crowd, Oxford. Gold to amber with white head. Bright, light hoppy beer, fresh and tasty, packing a bigger hop note than expected. Grassy with hints of Kiwi fruit and peach. Really quite pleasant.

Bottle, gift from my colleague from Glossop. Hazy golden color, small white head. Fruity aroma of pear, malt, toffee, some floral notes. Taste has malt, grass, citrus, hops - dry sweet with medium bitter hoppy finish and aftertaste. Light crispy body and average carbonation. Nice and refreshing fruity ale.

Gravity Cask @ Soton Beer Festival 07. A hint of tasty toffee goes well with citrussy hops and pine. Bitterness fades quickly. Drinkable but leaves you wanting a little more, shoukl be good for a session.

Cask-conditioned at the Bag ONails, Bristol 2/12/08. Deep gold in colour with a frothy, white head. Tropical fruit and elderflower aroma. Flavour began with some sweet malts, before citrus hops and apricot fruit took over, leading to a decent dry finish. Good stuff.
