<i>Gravity dispense at Pig’s Ear Festival 2008, London</i>harrisoni (18578) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - MAY 4, 2009
Hazy light amber color. Nice aroma, hoppy, light honey, malt, camomile; interesting. Less adventurous flavor, with medium-sweet toffee and very light vegetables touch. Correct bitterness. Not bad.
Cask gravity at Reading BF 09. Gold/copper colour with lasting beige head. Looks in cracking condition. It’s a bitter. Some apple flavour. Bit tight on tongue. Some malt, touch of biscuit. Needs a day to be good I would guess. Bit of herb on the finish. imdownthepub (14555) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 5, 2012
Bottle conditioned, 500ml from Culham Post Office, Culham, Oxon. Burnished gold with white head. Considering the abv, this packs a decent punch, there is a malty fruitiness, a hint of orange skin perhaps then a dry, earthy, bittering English style hop note. A decent session type bitter.

Bottle from Co-op Marston, Oxford, purchased & consumed 08.09.11 Pours warm gold/light amber with a white head. Good bitterness from the off, quite impressed with what the Fuggles and Goldings are capable off if enough are used in a standard English bitter as they have been used here. Bit dry towards the end and whilst quite simple without too many other pointers to remark on, its a damn decent bottled bitter.

Bottled 26/05/12. An orangey gold coloured beer with a tiny rim of whitish bubbles. Juicy citricity in the nose with a bit of spoiling BCA gone wrong rubber. Pretty bitter in the mouth with more citrus and rubber. There’s a little chocolatey sourness and toast as well. Enjoyable enough, but has flaws. downender (8660) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - APR 1, 2013
Cask-conditioned at the Herefordshire & Worcestershire beeriodical, the Seven Stars, Bristol March 2013. Amber coloured with a slight, off-white head. Hedgerow fruits, a touch of tangerine and some leafy hops, leading to a decent, bitter finish. Enjoyable. BlackHaddock (7346) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - AUG 19, 2012
Brown 500ml bottle: best before Aug 2013, poured into an Abbot Ale glass tankard during Aug 2012.
Slightly cloudy orange colour: dull old gold maybe. On top a thick head os white foam.
The nose and taste were both fruity and hoppy: a good blend of flavours with the hops being the strongest influence giving the beer a dry and extremely hop finish.
This brewery produces some lovely beers: not their best but still a very fine beer. MesandSim (7117) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 5, 2009
A Mes rate. Gravicask at Pigs Ear. Bright, clean orange amber with a thin collar of white foam. Sweet malt, slight tea and apple, a little hint of wheat. A little rough in the finish but just about balanced and drinkable overall. AshtonMcCobb (6609) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - APR 29, 2015
Bottle from Saucy Pears.
Appearance - hazy amber with a decent head.
Nose - cookie dough.
Taste - digestive biscuit, light chocolate in the back and a dried fruit note.
Palate - light to medium bodied with a creamy texture and a balanced dry finish.
Overall - this grew on me. Not bad at all.
