4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Cask at The George, Croydon. It pours hazy golden yellow with a medium white head. The nose is hopsack, barnyard, sticky fruit, orange, mango, peach, apricot, hay and faint spice. The taste is orange, mango, tangy marmalade, resin, residual sweetness, well-hidden alcohol, fruit salad sweets and pineapple with a bitter-sweet finish. Medium body, soft carbonation and slightly sticky mouth-feel. A ballsy cask beer indeed. Delicious!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: SEP 9, 2012 Cask (Rake, post-RBESG2011 Monday) (7:3:7:4-:13=3.4)
Super sweet peachy aroma, packed full of sticky hops. Hazy orange. Dunno whether that’s hop haze, or imperfect settling. A touch of alcohol as soon as it enters the mouth. Super smooth malty body, with sweet cakey malts. Hops do dominate, but stay in good balance - slightly pungent, and very fleshy-fruity.
Rerate: Gravicask (PBBF2012, Tuesday) - sips (7:4-:7:4:14=3.6-)
Superbly well balanced. Way more drinkable and less pungent than before.
