Cask conditioned at Banbury Beer Fest ’08. Copper gold with white head. Full with a strong alcohol note, heavy body with a slight roasted background. There is a dry fruitiness, almost apricot in the beer, as is usual with Milton beers, really well brewed to deliver the hop notes which were dry and spicy. Not bad at all.

Cask conditioned at Banbury Beer Festival 09-05-08 Pours warm gold with a tiny thin white head, warming sweet honey flavours, spicy hops this is really rather nice although it can be just a tad cloying at times, still an impressive beer and reminds me just a little of Oakham. hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - APR 14, 2008
Cask at Wellington Arms, Bedford. Copper amber. Delightfully sweet malty aroma. Fruity taste with pear, apple and other luscious stuff. Gentle bitterness. Unsubtle, yes, but very enjoyable.. albertane (377) - Nottingham, Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - MAR 29, 2008
Cask at the Bell, Nottingham. This copper beer has an enjoyably rich palate, a floral aroma, and a fruity flavour with lots of lemon. evilempire (153) - sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - FEB 21, 2008
A red ale with fruity overtones. not as hoppy as I usually like, but a very drinkable red ale with no alcohol burn, nicely balanced

A Mes rate:
Gravicask. Citric hoppy nose, mainly grapefruit. Nice dust and creamy mellow hoppy flavour. Straight down the line but a typically scrumptious Milton offering. haddonsman (1234) - Derby, Derbyshire, ENGLAND - JAN 12, 2006
Cask (gravity) at the Lion Inn beer festival, Basford, Nottingham. On the Deep Black stag crawl. A rather up-front flavoured beer; smoky malts, fruity mouthfeel, a little too unsubtle for me to really love it. chriso (7533) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 10, 2005
Cask (gravity dispense). Beer #14 at Bedford Beer Festival 2005. A copper coloured beer with the emphasis on nutty malt. Some smoky notes and lots of toffee. Powerful fruity malt flavour, with caramel and some chocolate nuances. Reminded me of Caramac chocolate bar (do they still make that). Well made to the style. I just prefer a touch more bitterness to balance things out.

Cask conditioned - gravity dispense - Bedford BF. A rich brown coloured beer with a malty sweet aroma. There is a little diacetyl and some good toffee together with fruity alcohol. The taste is sweet and quite alcoholically warming. A full mouthfeel and almost medicinal. Very nice.
