Cask. Bright coppery colour, tight white head. Lovely peachy orangey smell. Tastes light at first, but has a sticky oily mouthfeel. Really nice actually.

Gravicask (CWAF2013, Sat)
Lovely sweet fruity spicy hop aroma - peach to the fore. Tons of honey in the taste. A little sticky, but a nice full-flavoured sweet sipper. I could have this rather than desert!

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cask conditioned handpump Criterion Leicester 30/01/13. A broght copper coloured beer with a white head. Good orangey marmalade aromas from the hops. A decent full bosy with nice balancing malts. Good leafy hoppy mouth. This seems fairly simple but is so perfectly balanced and really very tasty.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
17th Feb 2012: Hand pulled pint in ‘The Wrekin’ Wellington, Shropshire.
Brown/deep amber body colour: off-white almost beige head of foam on top which gave some good heavy lacing on my UK sleeve glass.
Pleasant smell: blend of citrusy hops and malty molasses (toffee mostly) with a mini nutty undertone.
The taste: More floral than the aromas, with a fairly dry bitter finish; OK more than great.
Body depth and feel about right for a UK 4.4% Bitter: another ‘above average brew’ from a brewery who’s beers I enjoy drinking.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask@The Oxford, London. Chestnut brown with slight amber notes, small bubbly off-white head. Aroma is caramel, bread, mild nuts as well as resin and wood. Flavour is similar, but also has quite zesty and floral notes to it.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Cask at Blue Boar, Billericay. Pours a cloudy amber / brown with a tight white head. The initial aroma is dull pineapple with a secondary zesty grapefruit that slowly awakens. Light and zingy on the palate, a creamy almost milk chocolate roasted pineapple becomes a zesty grapefruit further down the glass. This beer has quite a dry sharpness to it and as you swallow, subtle pineapple flavours fill the nose. There is a zesty citrus bitterness in the aftertaste that lingers for some while.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
A mellow citric nose, copper in colour, with a tight off-White head. Very citric in the taste, with no trace of malt. The very tart and astringent aftertaste puts me off having another.
