Gravity cask@1st Ryde Real Ale and Cider Festival, Ryde
Dark amber color, tiny off-white head. malty aroma with light fruity notes. Light-bodied. Flavor has earthy notes, some citrus and then odd yeastyness which seemed to be like Yates house flavor. Without that ok but uninteresting.

MichaelAwesome (6472) - Wanne-Eickel, GERMANY - AUG 10, 2014
On tap at Bertie’s in Cowes. Unpleasantly bitter with watery moments and unbalanced body. Aromas of hops, some bread and leaves. Drinkable but nipot the best of that day.
