caesar (7281) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - AUG 13, 2008
Cask @ GBBF 08. Golden color, short head. Aroma of grapefruit. Bitter taste, bitter palate. Not much too say, but enjoyed it.

thebeertourist (5189) - Oslo, NORWAY - AUG 9, 2008
Cask at GBBF 08. Pours clear golden with a medium white froth. Fruity hop aroma with toffee in the background. Good bitterness, fruity hops with just that hint of toffee. A very nice pale ale.

MesandSim (7117) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 9, 2008
A Mes rate: Gravicask at Ealing Beer Festival.
Clean gold with no head. Full on grass and nettles in the aroma. It’s like being by a stream, really aromatic and spicy. Similar flavour but there is a kick of something in the finish that I can’t put my finger on but I know I don’t like. Good start, below par finish.

doubelknv3 (1093) - Illinois, USA - JUN 22, 2008
Tasting notes from 2004 Banbury beer festival. Golden, orange with frothy white head. Floral, citrus, and spice aroma notes. Had some characteristics of an APA. Citrus (grapefruit) dominates, with some sweet notes to tame it. However, a dry bitter finish.

DonMagi (5593) - bantervile, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 15, 2007
This is something i could punish and find myself in a bad way. Really hoppy aroma, citrus and grassy. Taste is just a bit hoppy bitter juice drink.
