COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask; Regular. Gambit is an interesting devolution of two styles, this beer is neither golden nor amber, it falls directly between the two, what can only be described as ’bronze’, the body is light enough to be a session ale but is hoppy enough to give some IPA’s a run for their money. A juicy hop bitterness dominates throughout, with grapefruit & orange notes punctuating followed by a huge Amarillo dry hop finish.

Leighton (10543) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 6, 2013
Cask at CPK, London. Pours clear yellow-gold with a light, white head. Crispy straw nose, some light lemon. Great flavor, very well balanced, some crunchy straw, light toasty grass, some sugar and grain. Light bodied with fine carbonation. Good condition. Light to medium sweet finish with moderately dry lemon. A bit of dry straw, too. Wonderful. So, so drinkable.

Scopey (6321) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 7, 2012
Cask at CP&K. It pours golden yellow, with a fluffy white head. The nose is sweet nectarine, honey, floral, leaf and caramel. The taste is straw, hay, resin, grass, citrus pith, raw hop, leaf and honey, with a long dry finish. Light-medium body and soft carbonation. Good stuff.

JohnRMurdoch (3214) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - MAR 19, 2012
Cask @ The Bow Bar, Edinburgh. Golden yellow colour, big head. Dry biscuit citrus aroma. Biscuit, resin & citrus fruit flavour. Bitter aftertaste. I would class this as a British blonde beer.

rjkreid (191) - SCOTLAND - MAR 8, 2012
Zingy floral aroma. Very dry but with a bitterness at the finish which reminds me a little of elderflower, which is not necessarily a good thing! Easy drinking never-the-less, would be good on a hot afternoon.

Benjii (3049) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - NOV 28, 2011
On cask at Cloisters. Pours a light golden colour with a decent white head. Nice resinous hop aroma of passion fruit, pineapple, mango, caramel and barley. Just a little sweet with similar flavours and nice lingering bitterness. Quite bitter overall. Moderate carbonation and an oily mouth-feel. Nice.

Fin (7278) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 4, 2011
Cask, gravity at Harbury Beer Festival, Harbury, Warwickshire, 03.09.11 Consumed this alongside the Summer Wine Hercules Black IPA, both great beers, though I slightly preferred the Hercules myself. This poured gold with good clarity, with a slim white rim of bubbles around the edge, touch of grapefruit, nice beer. A7 A5 T7 P4 Ov14 3.8
