Cask-conditioned at the Inn on the Green, Bristol 18/02/10. Golden in colour with next to no head. Sweet malt and citrus aroma with a hint of spicing. Flavour had ginger and coriander notes, before a sweetish, orange blossom hop finish. Ok. peter48er (185) - Liverpool, Merseyside, ENGLAND - OCT 9, 2008
UPDATED: MAR 8, 2009 Cask. Freshfield Hotel,Formby. Light golden colour with small white head. I’m struggling with both aroma and flavours. Citrus perhaps but also a vey noticeable fllavour which I am finding very hard to identify. Perhaps some grapefruit , more peach possibly but not really sure. Only to say I found it most agreeable. Subsequently drunk again last weekend @ the Freshie and decided taste was very much like Cumberland sausage! leaparsons (10553) - Wigston, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - OCT 8, 2008
Cask, The Criterion, Leicester. Pale gold with small head. Aromas are lemon meringue with lots of resinous grapefruit and citrus. Flavours are crisp grapefruit with lemon. Tasty, refreshing and good. imdownthepub (14556) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 31, 2008
UPDATED: AUG 29, 2009 Cask conditioned at The Guest House, Southport. Pale gold with white head. Lovely lemony hops tothe for, rich and oily in character, dry bitter, citrusy with a touch of peach. Long bitter finish, great stuff.
Re rate at The Turf Tavern, Oxford 28/08/09. Cloying sweetness, lime, overbearing. DJMonarch (9179) - Northwich, Cheshire, ENGLAND - JUL 29, 2007
Cask Stillage at Edgeley Park, Stockport 02/06/2007

Cask gravity at Pembury Tavern. Gold with disappearing white head. Odd chalky medicinal aroma. Bit herby. Not very pleasant at all. Ginger spice and horrid medicine is what I mostly got. reakt (950) - Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 18, 2007
UPDATED: SEP 2, 2007 cask @ 2nd pembury festival. Pale gold. Sour smell of stale urine. It’s like walking down Southwark Bridge Road near Minstry of Sound on a summer night. Perhaps someone DID have a wee in it. Some people at the table had reached their expiry. Taste is miles better. Peach, pineapple, orange zest and grass. Light bitter finish. Not bad if you can get past the smell. MesandSim (7117) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 17, 2007
A Mes rate:
Gravicask at the Pembury. Sweetish but generally hoppy and herbal. As with some other All Gates beers there is a clear note of ginger. Not bad but the ginger note just masks it a little. chriso (7533) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 1, 2006
Cask (gravity dispense) at St Albans Beer Festival, September 2006. Pale gold/amber colour. Fresh, grassy, herbal aroma, with hints of sulphur. Clean and dryish, with a fair amount of juicy fruit and noticeable resinous hop in the flavour. A decent early effort from a new brewery.
