Cask conditioned - gravity dispense - Pigs Ear BF. An amber coloured beer with a decent off-white coloured head. The aroma is malty with biscuits and crackers to the fore. This is replicated in the crunchy taste. Bready flavours also. Very nice.

BCA (from Bitter Virtue, BB Aug 07). Good balance between strawy hops and clean but falvoursome biscuity bready malts. Very drinkable and definitely one I’ll try on cask when I see it. Suprisingly well bottled for a new brewer and with improved quality compared to the beers I tried shortly after they had opened.

Cask (Pullman, Helsinki)
Orangy, thin head. Sharp slightly fruity and sour and nutty malty aroma. Mild carbonation. Taste is also sharp, and powerfully malty - raw and sour mashy. Also got hints of nuttiness and even some ginger. Pukka Best, back to the style of the 80s or before. Tasty and refreshing.

Gravicask @ Reading Beer Festival. Dark golden colour, almost amber. Surprising roasted malt nose. Tarty malt flavour that is not particularly refined. Could have been much better.

Aroma is fruity with bready malt and hints of hay. Flavour has some fruity hops with flowery notes and bready malt. Rather fruity but otherwise quite typical real ale.
