MesandSim (7117) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 22, 2007
A Mes rate: Gravicask at GBBF. Amberish colour with a reasonable off white head. Standard bitter fayre but with lashings of caramel. Almost too much. Sticky finish that eventually turns bitter.

downender (8517) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - AUG 12, 2007
Cask-conditioned at the Hope & Anchor, Bristol 11/8/07. Copper coloured with a slight, off-white head that left a lot of lacing. Aroma of sweet malt and red fruit. Flavour was also sweet, almost caramelised with a bitter finish that prevented it becoming cloying. Good.

Dedollewaitor (16009) - Odense, DENMARK - MAR 4, 2007
Cask at C4, Odense: Clear amber with off white head. Low carb - flat. Malty caramel with a watery body, even for a cask ale. Easy sweet flavor before it ends with a slight dry hoppy finish!
