3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Cask at Merton Summer Beer Festival 06-07-07. Glorious golden colour with lovely bubbly white foam. Some sulphur on the aroma front, bitterness was quite pronounced and like Glen mentions it was actually quite dry. Tasty bitter, that maybe lacked a bit of maltiness to equal things out but I enjoyed the few small samples that I had over the weekend and another beer that had it’s own admirers.

UPDATED: SEP 19, 2007 Gravity, Far From The Madding Crowd. Pale gold, nice frothy white head. Ripe stalky garden aroma; compost, tomatoes, herbs. Interesting. A little weird. Malt aspect of this beer is very pleasant. Good white bread, slightly toasty. Hop character has some nice cinnamon and orange pith, but then notes of that same garden decay. A peculiar beer, and one that I initially found sort of unwelcoming. But it grew on me, and by the end I was kinda digging it. Plays by it’s own rules. Yeah, this is starting to sound pretty much like the plot of every underdog sport movie.
(Previous rating: Gravity, Merton Beer Festival. Sticky open foam on a gold body. Berries, sulfur and peppermint aroma. Fresh, though partly fresh swamp. Light body, refreshing and delicate. Well-balanced bitterness. A good beer, though on a day with so many truly excellent beers, this one didn’t get it’s head out in front of the pack. 3.2 overall)

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Gravity Cask @ Southampton Beer Festival ’07. Pale copper. Sukpurhy yeast. Mild leafy bitterness with hints of biscuity malts and bittersweet finish. Light body. Slightly rough finish with some more yeast. Some nice aspects but I wasnt quite sure about this one and I’m not entirely sure it was ready to be served. Potential to be better.
