3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cask handpull at The Market Porter. Light russet colour, lasting beige head. Good tasting ESB. Lovely fruity malt, good mouthfeel. Rather good. A little sweet maybe, but nice enough. Actually this is excellent. I arrived feeling a little jaded, but this got my mouth up and dancing. Some hop on end, but not aggressive.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A Mes rate: Gravicask at Manc Winter Fest.
Very red amber (great colour) with a thin white rim. Slight coffee in the aroma with some lovely spice and malt. Malty notes are not as great in the mouth but it’s still pretty tasty all the same. Notes of bread, fruit and some grassy hoppage. All the ingredients are there it just lacks a little balance. Still a tasty drink though.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask in the Market Porter. Alround rating: Toffee and a light roasty coffee character, grassy and floral hop come in to bitter and dont give much flavour. Decent enough but not as hot as thier summer citrusy beasts.
