Handpull @ The Pembury. Clear gold, head scarpered quickly. Nose of sweet grainy malt, slight fruit and grass. Taste is much the same with a touch of hop bitterness in the swallow. Quite dull and boring.

Pale yellow beer. Sour and malty aroma, not like a golden beer. Good sweet-sour balance and fresh finish. Not bad.

Cask (handpump) @ Elm Tree, 16a Orchard Street, Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, England CB1 1JT.

Clear medium orange yellow color with a average, frothy, good lacing, mostly lasting, off-white head. Aroma is moderate malty, toasted - caramel, fruity, light to moderate hoppy. Flavor is moderate sweet and bitter with a average duration. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft to flat. [20130119]

Draught (Elm Tree, Cambridge)
Sweet mustard aroma. Gravy-like savoury taste - sage and onion stuffing. Flat. Past its prime from that clue, I’d say, but it’s only been on one day. Herbal finish. Taragon.

Gravicask at the Angel mini beer festival, Kelvedon. Hazy gold beer with a residual white head. Light semi dry palate. A little pale malt. Okay citrussy orange and lemon. Fresh. Finishes semi dry.

Hand pulled cask at Sportsman at Croxley near Watford. Gold with a thin white head. Subtle wheat sourness and little hop flavour. Bland.

A Mes rate: gravicask at the Bricklayers Arms.
Copper coloured with no head. Extreme pukey malt aroma that is really not good at all. Wheaty malt flavour with some faint fruit and a good dry bitter finish. Shame about the aroma as the rest is decent enough.

Ethereal (2421) - Los Angeles, California, USA - MAR 7, 2009
Cask at Bricklayers Arms Yorskhire Festival, 27th February 2009. Sweet aroma, biscuity malt taste. Balanced but rather average.

hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 22, 2009
Cask at Wellington Arms, Bedford. Gold. Hairy cardboardy malt aroma which later developed rather nice fruity notes, maybe baked apple sponge. Grainy malt taste with further cardboard and a brisk mid bitter finish. This beer grows on you after an uninspiring first impression. Try it again.
