COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask; Occasional. Part of the Imperator Range.
Pale ale, deceptively strong yet easy drinking. Citrus flavours dominate first then fading to a powerful bitter finish.

Scopey (6911) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 24, 2013
Cask at the Maypole. It pours hazy gold with with a small white head. The nose is earth, hay, apple, pear and candy. The taste is sweet pear, melon, apple, grain, light toast, spice, alcohol kick and wood. Medium body and soft carbonation. A bit sweet and the alcohol is pretty obvious for the abv. Sub-standard for Milton.

FatPhil (9363) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAR 26, 2011
Gravicask (Cambridge Winter Ale Festival 2010)
On the plus side, there were plasicky bocky malt aromas, but on the minus side there was nail varnish too. Sweet floral perfume too. Dull gold, not much head. Body almost sickly sweet, and gets sweeter over time. Underattenuated for sure.

chriso (7388) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 11, 2011
Cask (gravity dispense). Beer #17 at Cambridge Winter Beer Festival on 21 January 2011. Gold. Not much head. Decent enough condition. A bit too sweet. Some resinous hops. Rather under-attenuated impression with a slightly soapy feel on the palate. Not great. Maybe a bit green. Flagged for re-rate.

Leighton (11122) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 19, 2010
Cask at the Pembury Tavern. Pours clear gold with a light, white film. Nice hop aroma of grass, hay and faint grapefruit. Flavor is rather sweet, with meaty malts, toast, and some straw bitters. Medium bodied with soft carbonation and mild warmth. Finishes well balanced with some smoked meat, light honey malts and subtle, grassy hops. Quite a dynamic beer, really. Good stuff.

Fruity taste with notes of orange, apricots and fresh, floral hops in the finish. Not very bitter. Malty alcohol sweetness shines through. On the sweet side, but still nice.
