albertane (377) - Nottingham, Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - FEB 21, 2008
Cask at the Blue Bell, York. I’m sure I’ve had this better before; I wasn’t very impressed this time. It’s in the style of a Castle Rock Harvest Pale or Oakham JHB but without having the strong hop flavours or satisfying finish.

motelpogo (6130) - Plzen, CZECH REPUBLIC - NOV 4, 2007

Rastacouere (6107) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 30, 2007
A rather yeasty offering of a clear golde yellow colour topped by a quickly fading white head. Citrusy hops make up most of the aroma’s interest as they spring up with grapefruit and lemony whispers while the grainy malts stay satisfied with their tiniest hay-like hints. Mineral impression lasts for a while in the finish where the hops take less room and leave more to a watery growing feel. Under average.

Mungo (2472) - Southampton, Hampshire, ENGLAND - SEP 21, 2007
Aug 07 Cask conditioned @ Blue Bell York. Golden. Some Nutty malt flavours and citric strawy hops. Slightly dusty earthy feel in the finish. Reasonable but I’m not sure this is how it should taste.

Cask, Bon Accord, Glasgow, RBESG 07. Clear straw, thin white head. Nose is grassy hop, mouth is much the same, disappointingly. Some malt towards the end, finishes sweet and metallic.

MesandSim (7119) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 9, 2007
A Mes rate: Gravicask @ Planet Thanet. Very pale and rather uninviting. Eggy sulphur nose. SO eggy! Flavour is mildly better than the aroma but has some diacetyl. Generally not too pleasant.
