Gravity @ 32nd Cambridge Beer Festival, UK. 25th May 2005
Quite burtonised (sulphury) aroma, not so much in taste. Rather grassy and otherwise green taste. Maybe a bit young. Quite refreshing though, and I wouldn’t mind another try of this beer.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Light amber colour. Slightly hazy. Strong grassy hop aroma, with some resinous notes. The hop presence is less marked on the palate, with some dry malt coming through. It still has a rather astringent mouthfeel. The finish falls away a bit. By no means a bad beer but it doesn’t quite fulfill the early promise and the final impression lacks a bit of muscle.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Cask conditioned - gravity dispense - Leicester BF. A light golden coloured ale which has a touch of fruit in the aroma but there is an off-putting sulphur character. The taste is malty and grassy and a bit disappointing. A bit nothing really.
