Clear straight golden. Gentle lacy sticky off-white head. Slightly peppery, orangey mellow hops. Gentle melony malts play a supporting role and leave the sandy bitterness grow by the sip. Slight saltiness also makes an appearance. More than fair, rickgordon (3878) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - SEP 1, 2007
Cask at Bon Accord, Glasgow.
Amber colour. Citric hops behind a blanket of tea-ish hops. Fruity, citric hoppy flavour profile with a thorough bitterness, that is all pleasant. Light-medium body. omhper (25564) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - AUG 30, 2007
Cask at Bon Accord, Glasgow. Deep golden. Citrusy and fruity. Medium bodied with soft mouthfeel. Some light grain and rubber. Flowery bitter finish. Quite likable, if a bit sweet. rlgk (18852) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - AUG 30, 2007
(RBESG 2007, Cask at Bon Accord, Glasgow) Golden/amber color, small offwhite head. Nice hoppy, grassy perfume aroma. Hoppy, grassy, citric flavor with some fruits. RoyceH (1200) - Hesperange, LUXEMBOURG - AUG 16, 2007
Cask, Whey Pat, St Andrews. Pours a golden straw colour with thin white head. Nose is lots of hoppiness, some grassy floral play, but mostly drowned out in the sea of hops. Mouth has some summer fruit, some floral tones again, some grassy tones. Pretty standard, really.

Cask. Golden colour, mediumsized white creamy head, lacing. Aroma is sweet nectar, some hops and pleasant woodenness. Flavour is nectar, quite bitter fruity and grassy hoppy along with some slight hints of caramel and wood. Nice One! MesandSim (7117) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 21, 2007

Gravicask at Kent Beer Festival. Clean mid gold colour. Strong grassy hops in the nose. Flavour is very floral with some raspberry and sadly a soapy note that lets it down some. cgarvieuk (25734) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUN 1, 2007
Very pale yellow in colour, grapefruit hop nose, and a sharp grapefruit hoppyness. duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - FEB 9, 2007

Market Porter. Quite light, with a lightly sweet then slightly acidic mouthfeel. Some pale malt and light melony fruit flavours. Some sort of rubbery flavour seems to come through aswell, which lessened my enjoyment of this beer.
Any first impressions?
-A veil of foam tops the clear peachy golden.
-Honeyed maltiness seductively interacts with the citrusy, floral, wooden hop perfume.
-Cereal and citrusy hops have a firm grip on the tastebuds, and no one’s complaining, quite the contrary.
-The mouthfeel is clean, lean, and mean, always drinkable and amorously fed.
What if you dig deeper?
-The flavor profile is very well balanced.
-Apricot add to the already fruity finish.
-Lots of flavor for such a light brew, which makes this all the more commendable. A great session blond ale, no doubt. Thanks Gareth!
