Cask (handpump) @ National Winter Ales Festival 2009, Manchester, England.
Clear light to medium yellow orange color with a average, frothy, good lacing, mostly lasting, white to off-white head.

MesandSim (7119) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 1, 2009
A Mes rate. Gravicask at National Winter Ale festival. Clean golden brown with a good white head and decent condition. A fairly dull malty brew with hints of tea and a little citric bitterness. Lightly roasted malt in the finish. Inoffensive but lacking enough character to shine.

DruncanVeasey (7160) - NUNEATON, Top 18, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - JAN 11, 2009
Bottle from Arden Wines. Tight lasting white head on hazy gold. Slick, lacy and full at 3.8. Beautiful fibrous pineapple jelly spinkled with pineneedle US hop aroma. Soapy and slightly astringent with less of the citrus brilliance and pine in the mouth. Hint of ash, almost chocolate despite the paleness. Galena? Bit murky but a lacy, flavoursome GA.

imdownthepub (10171) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 26, 2008
Cask conditioned, gravity dispense at The George, Barford St. Michael, Oxon. Yellow gold with very slight head. Light, thin, lagery type beer, quite dry and unfortunately flat. A touch of caramel in the body and just a hint of lemony hop. Drinkable but just a little boring.

maeib (8682) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - MAY 24, 2007
Cask conditioned - gravity dispense - Cambridge BF. A golden coloured bitter. The aroma is light with a flowery saaz feel to it, and a hint of fart. The taste is light, but reasonably well balanced. Quaffable, but ultimately quite dull.

StueyD (1146) - Heacham, Norfolk, ENGLAND - MAY 23, 2007
A pale, golden yellow coloured beer with a thickish white head. A light, hoppy nose, zesty lemon leads the citrus fruit charge, with grapefruit and orange, and a touch floral as well. The taste is is dry and hoppy, zesty citrus fruits again, then a touch floral which leads into a more sweeter, buttery malt flavour. The finish is dry, zesty and a little fizzy. (Cask - 2007 Cambridge Beer Festival).

SilkTork (5218) - Rochester, Kent, United Kingdom, Kent, ENGLAND - APR 24, 2007
500ml bottle from a supermarket in Torquay. Active yeast produces a creamy dense clean white head. Carbonation is lively, fresh, soft and attractive. Beer is light, zesty, citric fresh, with a gentle sweetness in the middle and a mild flowery finish. Some earthy bitterness lingering. A delicious drinking beer - exactly the sort of thing I like.

johninmelb (1126) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - FEB 14, 2007
Aroma fresh and zesty with some lemonade notes. Pours pale gold with a fluffy white head. Well hopped with good citrus and a surprising depth of flavour for such a low alcohol beer. vERY NICE.

chriso (7347) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 4, 2007
Cask (gravity dispense) at St Albans Beer Festival, September 2006. Not really too much to say about this beer, but, in many ways, it’s a quintessential English ordinary bitter. Amber colour. Touches of dry malt and tangy hop, underpinned by a light, thirst-quenching bitterness. Restrained but well balanced. As one might expect, its quite light bodied. Better suited to a long session in a pub than detailed analysis, and none the worse for that.
