ForlornHope (429) - Hampshire, ENGLAND - JUL 1, 2016
Gravity-served cask pint. Brilliant, clear pale yellow appearance with a loose white head. Not much aroma, some flower and hop. Taste is sweet, then a little bitterness. Flavours of honey and fruit, some elderflower and a malty base. True to Flowerpots form, a dry finish. At the sweet end of the spectrum for a brewery known for its bitter ales and probably a little too sweet to be truly refreshing.

Have tried a few ales infused with elder flowers before and was hoping for a nice peachy aroma and fresh elder taste. The elder infusion didnt seem to work in this ale and wasnt very pleasant. Tried it at GBBF 2015

Gravicask (PBBF2012, Thurs)
Smells of chillis. A bit organic. Pale, brief head. Tastes also of chillis, but without the head. Vegetal. (Pods, presumably!) A bit thin, but it is 3.8% so its not too surprising. A bit quirky in places, but not necessarily in a good way.

On cask (handpump) at Great British Beer Festival, day 3 on 6 August 2009. Attractive clear, bright gold colour. Good condition. Lots of citrus. Sharp, clean mouthfeel. Very refreshing but not as aromatic as the old Cheriton version.
