Blonde pint with a thin head. Drinks a little thin/watery and quite bland. Some hops but not much else. Forgettable.

Bottle, Ale Cellar, Darlington. "They’re not scared of you.They’re scared of
what you represent to them.
All we represent to them
is somebody who needs a haircut.
Oh, no. What you represent to them......is freedom. Freedom’s what it’s all about." Oh yeah man...
Pale golden colour, white head. Some hop and citrus in the aroma; these themes continue furthur into the flavour. Dry bitter finish. OK, but shame its not a classic brew to pay homage to a classic movie !

A Mes rate: Gravicask at Ealing Beer Festival.
Slightly hazy gold with a thin white head and decent condition. Good balance of malt and hops on the nose with some nice fruit and dusty fresh tobacco. Crisp, fruity hop flavour with good floral notes and a fruity bitter finish. Not bad.

Izzystock ’08 (day 2). Cask. Tepid soapy citrus and soggy biscuit. Dull, but more fruit and complexity than the 30quid Aussie Riesling down the road.

Cask conditioned - handpump - Wig and Pen, Northampton. A light gold coloured beer with a white head. The aroma is lovely fresh hops with grapefruit and orange notes. The taste also has nice citric accented hops and a little biscuit malt. A very nice beer, particularly the smell.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle, Eskview Wines (?) Musselburgh. This is ok, a bit hazy, but light gold with a good white head that leaves a nice lace. Nose is fruity and slightly malty, the same can be said of the flavour. I feel it’s a bit on the sugary side but it’s easy drinking stuff. Similar to its big brother Pale Rider.
