A Mes rate:
Gravicask at GBBF. Clean gold colour. Lightly sweet and fruity aroma. Bitter hop flavour with a pleasant dry finish. I’ll agree with Ian on the sherbert notes. Not bad. Very drinkable session stuff.

Cask handpull at Saracen’s Head Hotel, Great Dunmow, Essex. Pale gold colour with thin white head. Sherberty floral hop aroma. Nice enough in mouth before sherberty distinctive hop kicks in. Very effervescent tingle on tongue lasts forever. Sweetish sherbert, but really good golden beer.

UPDATED: FEB 7, 2006 Was not bad, but bitter beers are not my type at all, and this one has nothingn speciall, but its wooden flavor, and a light colour like a lager.

Cask at Star Good Easter. Pale colour with whit head. Grassy citus aroma. A pleasant summer beer but with hoppy bite, a little too citrus for my taste. OK for one pint on a hot day but would give me gut ache if I had 2 pints, these American hops do not agree with me.
