3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Handpulled cask at JDW Rayners Lane. Gold with a good white head. Fine aroma of american hops and flavour followed this up. Grapefruit and lychees are present in a delightful combination of citric notes. Very impressive for a low gravity beer.

<i>Cask Conditioned at J.D. Wetherspoon - The Masque Haunt, London</i>
Hazy deep blond color. Itís generously hopped with a fruity American hop, evident both in the aroma and flavor; the body is maybe too thin, with light toffee, but it has a high drinkability and freshness. Very good.

Pint on handpull at The White Horse on Parsons Green (London). Golden, with ligth fruit on the nose. Plenty of mouthfeel for just 3.7% - a good balance between the malt and fruity hops that works nicely.

Cask conditioned Gravity Dispense Peterborough BF. A very light, almost anaemic coloured beer with a whitish coloured head. The aroma has nice citrus grapefruit notes. Nice and hoppy in the mouth with grapefruit again but also a bit of grass. Tasty but needs more body.

Cask conditioned, Gravity dispensed at Harbury Beer Fest í10. Pale gold with white head. Typical of Roosters, a little beer that punches above itís weight in flavour terms. There is a thinness to it, but the grapefruit skin, tangy hop moving to dryness makes it a refreshing light beer. Good finish, lovely.

Cask handpump at The Dispensary, Liverpool, 29-11-08. Pours golden with a white med/slim head looks in really good nick. The aroma is fresh and with a good citrus and hoppy scent. Its initially a little bit thin but its clean hoppy and with a gentle fruitiness it starts to win you over. A good beer that I would be happy to session on but maybe a little bit thin overall.

Cask gravity at Bricklayers Arms 2nd Annual Yorkshire BF 08. Pale gold with disappearing off whtie head. Slight haze. Peachy hop aroma. Pretty nice hop aroma. Resin. Thatís actually fairly good, but then you expect it from Roosterís. Little bit of farty yeast, but the white stone fruit flavours are pleasing.

A Mes rate: Gravicask at the Bricklayers.
Golden brown with a bit of a receeding hairline. Big citric and grassy hop aroma a very slight sulphuric note. Fruity finish with a bready aftertaste. Struggling for character but drinkable enough.
