Gravicask at GBBF. Dark golden appearance with a thin white head. Dull and standard aroma with some nice fruity notes. Grapefruit flavour with a sharp bitter hop finish. Boring but pleasingly drinkable. cgarvieuk (24515) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - AUG 15, 2007

Cask, GBBF 07. Poured it myself. Golden straw with a thin lacing white head. Nose is fruit, berries, very summery hops. Mouth is citrus hop and some malt that finishes in a hoppy rounded crisp end. davegore (223) - liverpool, Merseyside, ENGLAND - AUG 12, 2007
On tap at the Crows Nest, pours a gold with fluffy white head. Strong fruity citrus aroma leading onto a kind of peach. Good finish Dedollewaitor (16159) - Odense, DENMARK - JUL 3, 2007
Clear gold with good white foam. Fruity & flowery hops all over. Malty feel. Sweetness. Bitter crisp, citrus/piney end - close to sour and biting your inner cheek. Nice hoppy Cask ale!

UPDATED: NOV 17, 2009 Bronze pint with a dense, clinging white head and lace. Mustily hoppy, slightly urine-scented nose. Big, heady, mouth-filling satsuma hop zestiness. Potently hopped and full-bodied for the ABV. Very fruity and hopsacky. Hop-dominated and almost approaching the fruitiness of an American IPA. Too headily citrussy to be a sessionable summer refresher, but very good all the same. 647416
(Cask, Raglan Arms, Rugby) Clear gold draped finely with white. Wine gum, passionfruit and stewed tea aroma. Sweet red apple, tangerine and passion fruit hop drying into a discreetly punchy finish, linger of vanilla and wafer. NZ soft fruitiness and wafery biscuit; a bit Kipling or punk IPA top, husky bitter afters. Impressive and surprisingly hoppy quencher. 737314
(cask handpull at the brewery) Lush tangerine-Ovaltine balance, overripe orange aroma, crunch of red apple. Top US hopped English sessions, 738415. MiP (15667) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - APR 12, 2007
Cask. Nicely fruity hop aroma. Nice fruity hoppiness in flavour, hint of yeast. Good, medium bitterness. A very good bitter. gunnfryd (14886) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - APR 8, 2007
Cask at the Wharf, Aalborg. Golden colour with a white head. Aroma is fruit, hop, malt. Flavour is sweet, fruit, hop, malt. Ok beer. yngwie (17053) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - APR 6, 2007
Cask at the Wharf, Aalborg. Clear, pale golden, almost yellow, with a small white head. Citrus, bitterness and some malt in the aroma. Very citrusy flavor with some malt as well. Medium body and a citrusy and piney finish. Quite nice. (070331) hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 26, 2007
UPDATED: FEB 28, 2007 Cask at Wellington Arms, Bedford. Golden with a white head. Floral hop aroma. Strong citric fruity taste and a sharp dry finish. It seems churlish to complain after condemning some other golden ales as ’watery’, but curiously I found the taste experience of this one rather too intense and flavourful. Perhaps it was the weather.
