Cask conditioned - gravity dispense - Bedford BF. A rich brown coloured beer with a malty sweet aroma. There is a little diacetyl and some good toffee together with fruity alcohol. The taste is sweet and quite alcoholically warming. A full mouthfeel and almost medicinal. Very nice.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask (gravity dispense). Beer #14 at Bedford Beer Festival 2005. A copper coloured beer with the emphasis on nutty malt. Some smoky notes and lots of toffee. Powerful fruity malt flavour, with caramel and some chocolate nuances. Reminded me of Caramac chocolate bar (do they still make that). Well made to the style. I just prefer a touch more bitterness to balance things out.

A Mes rate:
Gravicask. Citric hoppy nose, mainly grapefruit. Nice dust and creamy mellow hoppy flavour. Straight down the line but a typically scrumptious Milton offering.

Cask at the Devonshire Arms, Cambridge. Golden, clear with almost no head. Apricot, tropical fruit and seawater in the aroma. Strong alcoholic fruity taste. Unfortunately the aftertaste is astringent bordering on acrid so the whole package is brought down a notch.
