COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask: Regular. Also available bottle conditioned.
A hoppy distinctive beer, the benchmark of the Freeminer style of brewing. Hops abound in this classic beer. Brewed with Goldings and Fuggles hops, which are grown locally at Ledbury, Herefordshire, one of the traditional hop growing areas of the U.K. The beer has a distinctive bitterness at around 30 E.B.U., the colour is a light, digestive biscuit brown. Hops abound and blend perfectly with a balanced malt character, derived from traditionally malted Maris otter malt. No hop oils, artificial sugars, or adjuncts are used in the production of Freeminer beers. A no nonsense beer for drinkers who appreciate beer with taste.

ManVsBeer (13887) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAY 31, 2015
Cask @ Calans, Hebden Bridge. Golden-brown with a creamy head. Bitter that’s slightly sweetened in character. Has an easy-drinking session texture.

oh6gdx (26485) - Vasa, FINLAND - JAN 29, 2010
[email protected] Horse Parsons Green, London (as Freeminer Fairtrade Bitter). Hazy goldeny orange colour with small off-white creamy head. Aroma is fruits, wood, herbs, earth and some mild notes of yeast. Flavour is fruity, wooden, hoppe and also has some slight yeasty notes.

maeib (8749) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - JUL 27, 2009
Cask Conditioned Gravity dispense Brackley Round Table BF. A copper coloured beer with some diacetyl in the nose amongst the hints of orange hoppiness. The taste is predominantly malty with toffee notes. Below average with a surprising lack of hop notes for Freeminer.

mjs (8603) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAR 25, 2009
(Cask at Pullman, Helsinki, on 2009-03-24) Pale golden and almost clear. Small, white and long lasting head. Weak grassy aroma. Dry, flat and medium bodied palate. Bitterness, little bit of malts and tiny amount of sweetness in taste. Flat aftertaste.

scotty (1295) - SCOTLAND - OCT 7, 2008
Cask from Wetherspoons in Galashiels, the only other cask beer apart from Deuchars they had available even though they had an Inernational Beer Festival running at the time. Anyway,it was a good mid brown colour, had a thin white head. Both the nose and palate were dominated by malt, a pleasant afternoon beer.

downender (9959) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - JUL 12, 2008
Cask-conditioned at a JDW in Newport, Wales. Deep amber with a decent off-white head. Malty aroma of fruit and caramel. Flavour was also sweet, with some chewy malt, grassy hops and a decent bitter finish. Good.

3.7
Ethereal (2471) - Los Angeles, California, USA - MAR 2, 2008
Gravity cask at the Battersea Beer Festival, 7th Feb 2008. Clear amber appearance with a caramely, biscuity malt aroma. Flavour is similar and it’s got a good weight to it. Great if you are looking for a sweet malty pint.

2.7
MesandSim (7117) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 14, 2008
A Mes rate: Gravicask at Battersea Beer Festival.
Mid golden brown with no head. Bland aroma of biscuity malt. Even more bland flavour with a bit of tea. Inoffensive but nothing to get excited about here.

3.3
FatPhil (17869) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - FEB 6, 2008
Cask (Angleterre, Helsinki) Deep orange, healthy head. Massive malty aroma, and really like cold black tea - quite bizarre. Taste is a mixture - apple, some tannin, light malts, but the tea is overpoweringly dominant. I must confess to loving cold tea. Decent bitter finish - full of real whole hops - and grainy malts, corn too - very nice.

2.7
leaparsons (11846) - Wigston, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - DEC 18, 2007
Cask, The Criterion, Leicester. Amber gold with a small head. Aromas are sweet ripe pear with brown sugar. Flavours are floral and sweet with some caramel. Hints of citrus, too. Seems a bit "damp".
