A Mes rate. Cask at the Marble. Clean gold with a thin white head, plenty of lace and really good condition. Assertive dusky hoppage and some really good supporting malt. Very well balanced. Very drinkable. Excellent stuff and certainly the best I’ve had from millstone.

imdownthepub (10226) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 11, 2008
Cask conditioned at Banbury Beer Fest ’08. Clear gold with white head. I have enjoyed Millstone beers ever since i first came across them 4 years ago. This is a big floral beer, a good strong but restrained body, light malts carrying the floral, zesty, grapefruit hops. Really very good and my beer of this festival.

Ethereal (2417) - Los Angeles, California, USA - DEC 26, 2007
Gravicask at The Bricklayers Arms Lancashire Fest, 15th Sept 2007. Clear gold with a small foam head. Very floral hop aroma but well-balanced and not too bitter. Light and easy-drinking but with a long-lasting bitter finish. A great refrshing ale with the strength reasonably well hidden.

DanielBrown (3814) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - SEP 29, 2005
Hand pulled at the Wellington, Birmingham. Delicious hoppy, clean beer. Citrus hops, quite strong and full. Good nettley finish, and the overall impression here is like a very good APA. This is excellent, beautiful stuff.

Handpulled at the Cask & Cutler, Sheffield. Fierce competition for this, locals at the bar were sinking this all lunchtime. And why not; golden body with an aroma just the right side of sweet perfume, fresh sorbet body, crunchy hopped finish. Beer of the trip for me.
