MesandSim (7118) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 24, 2008
A Mes rate: gravicask at GBBF.
Bright gold with a thin white head. Straight forward hoppy stuff with some slight sulphur and vegetation. Assertive bitterness in the finish but it’s too late to save it really.

Cask@GBBF2008. Golden colour, small white head. Aroma is eggy, vegetably hoppy along with some malts and grass. Flavour is much the same. Aftertaste gets some mild fruityness.

hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 8, 2008
Cask at GBBF ’08. Gold. Underarm hop aroma. Sweet taste, very hoppy at the end. Fairish golden but not outstanding in a huge crowd.

pivnizub (9039) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - AUG 26, 2007
On draught at the Bow Bar, Edinburgh: Deep golden to copper coloured, small foamy layer with a little lace; solid fruity (Riesling) and floral hoppy nose; robust bitter-sweet taste, light to medium bodied; hops and lemons in the lingering, vinous bitter-sweet finish. A very pleasant, first class session beer......

TheGrandMaster (2334) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - AUG 9, 2007
Half pint at the Great British Beer Festival, a light gold with a white bubbly head. A strong hoppy aroma. A hoppy and bitter palate, cleansing - but dominates any flavours.

RoyceH (1196) - Hesperange, LUXEMBOURG - MAY 23, 2007
Cask, Whey Pat Ale Festival, St Andrews. Gold with a thin white head. Slightly sweet with distinct off-taste... Mouth is slightly more robust on sweetness, watery, off-tasting. Palate is sweet and grabbing, with some bitter balance. Pity about the bad taste and nose.

Cask at GBBF 2006. A golden beer with a rim of beige head. The aroma is sweet malty with quite strong notes of fruit and lighter notes of flowery hops. The flavor is sweet malty with notes of caramel, flowers, and hops.
