A stylish and indulgent contemporary creation. A wealth of ideas and techniques have been poured into the making of beer. It has influences from traditional and new world brewing, with a nicely balanced rich body cut with notions of citrus and a development of spice. A more-ish beer full of character and zest. This is the Horns respectfully doffing our caps, to both the classic European and New World brewing techniques.

NOTE: Shortly to be replaced by a new version at 4.0% and with a very different recipe. Please do NOT entere ratings for that beer here - add as a new beer instead.

Cask (gravity) @ The 18th Reading Beer and Cider Festival 2012, Reading, Berkshire England.

Hazy - murky matt medium grey - yellow orange colour with a small to average, open and frothy - fizzy, fair lacing, mostly diminishing, white head. Aroma is light to moderate malty, wheat, light caramel, moderate yeasty, orange - mandarin. Flavor is moderate sweet with a average to long duration, fruity, orange - mandarin, rubber notes. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft to flat. [20120503]

[email protected] Beer Festival 2012. Hazy golden colour with a small white head. Aroma is wheat, quite zesty and a bit tropical fruity notes with mild yeastyness. Flavour is rather similar in a nice balance, mild-not-too-sweet toffeeish notes are also lurking in there. Balanced and pleasant.

bottle at home ... thanks to the dynamic duo ... golden amber ... thin white head ... soft dull orange nose ... soft fruits ... light dull fruits ...

Leighton (22307) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 29, 2013
Bottle at home in London with Lyoli - picked up this bottle at Oddbins London Bridge. Pours perfectly clear, rich honey-gold with a slight, creamy white head. Aroma holds buttery biscuits and slight caramel, some doughy bread. Medium sweet flavor, lightly syrupy, some caramel, buttered biscuits, some hay, hints of toasted straw. Light bodied with fine carbonation. Sweet malty finish, lightly toasted bread, still some dough, a bit more caramel. In it’s sugary simplicity it is enjoyable, but it’s not a great beer.

Theydon_Bois (20632) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - AUG 22, 2012
Cask at the Southampton Arms, Kentish Town - 20/04/12. Hazy golden with a small white head. Wheat and citrus nose which also lends to the taste with a touch of spice in there allied to yeast. Medium bodied, dry finish - ok.

harrisoni (19338) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - MAY 2, 2013
Bottle from Oddbins London Bridge. Clear gold with very thin white head. Slightly buttery slightly estery aroma. More or less a standard golden ale in the mouth with a little bit of butter. It’s clean, but just a bit bland to be honest. Not great condition. Bit too clean.

TBone (18227) - Pori, FINLAND - NOV 18, 2013
Clear golden color, small white head. Strong diacetylic butterscotch aroma. Medium-bodied. Crisp carbonation. Diacetyl is not so bad in the flavor, but it is there. Slightly wheaty, light hoppyness in the finish. Because of diacetyl, it is not easy to see if this has potential. My first one from By The Horns brewery.

FatPhil (17080) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - SEP 9, 2012
Gravicask (PBBF2012, Tuesday)
6 Slightly peachy perfumed aroma. Peaches and cream.
4 Rich peachy colour, tiny head, lots of lacing.
6 Perhaps too peachy - again, peaches and cream
4 Full and smooth. Nice hoppy fruity finish - a good bite.
13- Quirky and curious, but I do like it.

imdownthepub (15332) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 12, 2012
Cask conditioned at Fleetwood Beer Fest ’12. Cloudy gold with thin head. Pretty thin on the palate, this does have a light bitter lemon character folles by a hint of caramel, perhaps a touch of spice although indistinct. All a little understated.
