a_cross (600) - Poole, Dorset, ENGLAND - OCT 30, 2013
Copper brown, medium white head; dry, hoppy; slightly thin; decent enough sub 4 percent beer though; if you were locked in a single handpull pub for several hours and this was on you’d be ok.

downender (6236) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - MAY 30, 2010
On gravity at the Wellington, Bristol 29/05/10. Deep copper in colour with a small white head. Sweetish malt aroma with plenty of citrus hops. Caramel malt flavours, with a touch of red fruit and plenty more citrus hops in the finish. An excellent bitter.

Quack-Duck (7794) - Down South, GERMANY - SEP 1, 2008
bottle. Hazy deep amber-yellow golden colour with a medium-sized head. Fruity and malty with lovely hints of caramel, roasted malt and caramalt.

MesandSim (7119) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 9, 2008
A Mes rate: Gravicask at Ealing Beer Festival.
Dark amber with a thin rim of white foam. A nice combination of sweet toffee and some bitter hops. Decent citric finish. A straight down the line but solid English bitter.

renffisch (789) - london, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 9, 2008
gravicask @ kingston bf 08. Malty, fresh, floral nose. Dark mahogany colour. Flavour is light, of toffee, caramel and bread. Easy drinking. sweet strange malt aftertaste with just a tad of hop.

DruncanVeasey (7134) - NUNEATON, Top 13, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - SEP 5, 2007
UPDATED: NOV 4, 2007 Bottled. Surprised to see the ratings are so low for this one. Glowy red-orange with an impressively heaped head/ and drapes of lace. Aromatic and rocky. Juicy Turkish Delight hop fruitiness in the nose (Cascade), floral and beckoning. Murderously bitter tonic water/grapefruit hoppiness easily the equal of XX Bitter, Orval or Goose Island IPA -benchmarks of the kind of hop dryness I’ve a weakness for. Not much else going on, but this is a big, clean, refreshing and uncompromisingly hopped bitter Bitter, with character far outstripping its modest strength. Completely one-dimensional, but what the hell? Would actively seek out again.

Nekronos (3633) - Xalapa, MEXICO - APR 17, 2006
VEry bitter, but not extremely annoying as others. IT has a sweet floral aroma, but not too much, which let learn this has a lot of Hops in it, at least high.

DJMonarch (9159) - Northwich, Cheshire, ENGLAND - FEB 25, 2006
Cask Stillage at the Howcroft Inn, Bolton 11/10/2003 as Sutton Plymouth Pride Amber coloured slightly rich and sweet on the palate. Some bitterness in a malt finish.

maeib (8664) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - JAN 23, 2005
Cask conditioned - handpump - Malt Shovel Northampton. A mid brown coloured bitter with some fruit in the otherwise indistinguished aroma. The taste has a straw bitterness but is a bit one-dimensional and boring. I understand the brewery is called South Hams now but the pumpclip used was the Sutton one.

imdownthepub (10139) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 20, 2003
Cask Conditioned at The Woodman, North Leigh, Oxon. Brown amber beer with thin head. Sweet fruity bitter, some spiciness, a little like a brown sauce. Hoppy bitter finish, but sweetness also stays on the tongue.
