Cask; Regular.
A beer derived from years of practice searching for the perfect pint, of course hoping secretly that you never actually find it! In other words, a pint suited to the taste- buds of our head brewer that can be savoured several times in one session without feeling like the bottom has fallen out of your world (or vice-versa!). Golden, hoppy, clean on the palate and leaving a long lingering after-taste that will haunt you until you quest for more.

RoyceH (1198) - Hesperange, LUXEMBOURG - AUG 16, 2007
Cask, Whey Pat, St Andrews. Pours a golden straw colour with thin white head. Nose is lots of hoppiness, some grassy floral play, but mostly drowned out in the sea of hops. Mouth has some summer fruit, some floral tones again, some grassy tones. Pretty standard, really.

Cask. Golden colour, mediumsized white creamy head, lacing. Aroma is sweet nectar, some hops and pleasant woodenness. Flavour is nectar, quite bitter fruity and grassy hoppy along with some slight hints of caramel and wood. Nice One!

MesandSim (7117) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 21, 2007
A Mes rate: Gravicask at Kent Beer Festival. Clean mid gold colour. Strong grassy hops in the nose. Flavour is very floral with some raspberry and sadly a soapy note that lets it down some.

duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - FEB 9, 2007
Cask@The Market Porter. Quite light, with a lightly sweet then slightly acidic mouthfeel. Some pale malt and light melony fruit flavours. Some sort of rubbery flavour seems to come through aswell, which lessened my enjoyment of this beer.

MartinT (9411) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 10, 2007
Any first impressions?
-A veil of foam tops the clear peachy golden.
-Honeyed maltiness seductively interacts with the citrusy, floral, wooden hop perfume.
-Cereal and citrusy hops have a firm grip on the tastebuds, and no one’s complaining, quite the contrary.
-The mouthfeel is clean, lean, and mean, always drinkable and amorously fed.

What if you dig deeper?
-The flavor profile is very well balanced.
-Apricot add to the already fruity finish.
-Lots of flavor for such a light brew, which makes this all the more commendable. A great session blond ale, no doubt. Thanks Gareth!

On cask at Bon Accord, Glasgow.
