Gravity @ Wandsworth Common Halloween Beer Festival.The pour’s light gold with a small head. The nose is summery apricot jam, field berries, mild toasted bread and leafy hops, a hint of resin. The taste is syrupy tinned melon, general fruit salad, some orange peel and a bit of dank hop. The body’s light, soft. Overall, a fairly decent beer.

taganaya (39) - Greater Manchester, ENGLAND - JUN 1, 2012
Cask at Hilary Step, Manchester. Gold with thin white head which disappeared while 2/3 of the pint was still left. Aroma is quite sweet and fruity... strawberry pie... Taste is nicely bitter, grapefruit, kiwi, pine, with good amount of malt to round it out and some discernible alcohol. Pine lingers a bit too heavily on the aftertaste. Overall its got good points but doesn’t quite come together for me.
