harrisoni (13248) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - FEB 22, 2009
Cask handpull at Fox & Anchor, London. Served a little warm perhaps, but a decent best bitter/red ale. Full red berry fruit, slight strawberry jam edge. It’s an odd bitter, some good fruit. Some yeast character. Deep gold/copper colour. Almost a bit of fruit syrupy malt, but it never gets there. I quite like it, but it never quite resolves itself. Fine.

MesandSim (7119) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 11, 2009
A Mes rate. Gravicask at Chelmsford Winter Beer Festival. An attractive golden brown colour but no head. Good bready malt aroma with some faint roasted coffee notes. Rather dull flavour. A reasonable malt and hop balance with some late bitterness. Very boring but inoffensive.

Cask conditioned at The Royal Blenheim, Oxford. Brown with white head. Smooth but slightly dull bitter, malt lead with some toasted bread notes, but little else to carry it. Really not very much left to say about it.
