maeib (8640) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - MAR 15, 2008
Cask conditioned - gravity dispense - Leicester BF. A light amber coloured beer served in great condition. The aroma is so inviting. Full fresh piney hops. I could have sat and smelled this forever. The taste is beautifully full and long with more great hops and a superb chewy malty backbone. Good alcohol notes. Very tasty and definitely modern American in influence

albertane (377) - Nottingham, Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - MAR 15, 2008
Cask at the Leicester Beer Festival. This amber-coloured beer is thick and chewy, and like all Thornbridge Hall beers, very full-flavoured. It’s got loads of sharp bitterness from the hops and also a deep sweetness. It was almost a bit much.

A Mes rate: Gravicask at Sussex Beer Festival.
Prioritised as first beer of the day and I wasn’t let down. Attractive golden brown colour with a slim white head. Nice, heavily hop fronted IPA. Grassy, aromatic and close to resinous. Really tasty tangy bitter finish. Jolly good, just as expected.
