2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Cask (gravity dispense), St Albans Beer Festival, September 2007. Golden in colour but tends more towards a best bitter in style. Fairly dry with a firm bitterness but marred somewhat by a prominent and intrusive whiff of diacetyl in the aroma. A shame about that as, otherwise, its a decent enough beer.

Soft aroma and practically no head. Nice dry taste with a lot of fruity flavours in the background. Makes a nice change, but not something I’d want to drink on a regular basis.

3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Cask at the Admiral Benbow, Shrewsbury, Salop, 19-10-07 This poured dark golden in colour with barely any head at all. The aroma was soft and malty and lacking slightly, but the taste really was superb, it was quite sweet with honey and yet had a real citrussy dry, bitter, hooky taste curl on the end. There was even a little sweet cherry sat in the background to finish on.

A Mes rate:
Gravicask at St. Albans Beer Festival. Golden brown colour. Decent condition. Thin oily film on top. Sadly it is all dramatically downhill from there. Slight hoppage is the only thing I can detect other than a load of diacetyl. Not great.
