3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cask (gravity) - Norwich Beer Festival 2010. Pours with a head typical of gravicask: fluffy, bubbly & lasting, white in colour with a delicately hazy gold body. Brilliant, crisp grapefruit & lemon hop aroma. Crisp hop flavour profile: lemon, a bit of sherbet with a lingering finish. Light, drinkable body (and I could easily have gone for more), light to medium carbonation and a decent length end. A really lovely, straight up but standout bitter.

500ml bottle. Pours a slightly hazy golden with a medium head. Aroma is pineapple and piney hops. Tropical fruits to start and a nice piney hoppy finish with medium bitterness. Drinks above it’s strength. Very impressed.

(Old BA rate - cask)
Yellowy gold, and hinging on amber as well. Thin, white head poured at the perfect height. Fantastic lacing all throughout the sample. roma is light, citrusy and bitter hop aroma that was followed by biscuity maltiness. Brilliant hop bitterness up front with a dry floral finish. A lot creamier than I expected for the style. Very full mouthfeel with a decent coating of the tongue. This would do me great all night long. Lighter body might have been nice, but I can’t complain with all of the great flavors going on. What a treat, and at such a reasonable abv. Overall, this is a great interpretation and update of a very traditional style. Well-done, and I can see why it was the most popular beer at the pub.
