Cask (handpump) @ GBBF 2007, London. Clear medium yellow color with a small to average, fizzy, fair lacing, mostly diminishing, white head. Aroma is moderate malty, toasted, moderate hoppy, citrus, light toffee and butter. Flavor is moderate sweet and bitter with a average to short duration. ( A bit borring but refreshing and with a good balance) Body is light to medium, texture is watery, carbonation is flat.

Warning! Early amateur rating! On tap at the Sun Inn, Kelvedon. Amber beer. Sharp and sweet. Floral mid notes and a lingering semi bitter finish. Nice.

harrisoni (17337) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - AUG 23, 2007
Cask handpull at Gallus, Glasgow. Gold, lasting white head. It’s an ok golden ale, some citrus, bit stale. OK hop.

FatPhil (14021) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - SEP 25, 2007
Cask (Market Porter, London) Light amber, no head. Sweet malty aroma. Taste is much bigger, a very generous hoppy kick to stop it becoming too corn-sweet. Bitter finish lasts a long time.

imdownthepub (13370) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 7, 2004
Cask Conditioned at The Falkland Arms, Gt.Tew. Yellow gold with thin white head. Light hoppy summer beer, but lacking too much character. Some ashy tea notes with a perfumed overlay. Bitter but thin finish.

[RBESG, Sheffield]
Cask @ University Arms, Sheffield.
Pours lightly hazy golden with a nice, creamy, white film head. Good lacings. Aroma has lots of green apple, light doughy malts and subdued citric and piney hops. Very light carbonation, fine mouthfeel. Flavour has lots of green applepeel, light cider-ish, actually. Some subdued doughy malts. Fine, dry hoppy finish.

chriso (7513) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 22, 2004
Pale straw colour. Faint hoppy aroma. Rather malty for a summer ale nd short of zing. OK but, overall, slightly bland and lacking in character. Not that crisp for a quaffer. Cask (handpump), Lord Moon of the Mall, Whitehall, London SW1.

A Mes rate: Gravicask at GBBF. Clean lemon blonde colour. Dusty hops, bitter finish. Very boring.
