ManVsBeer (9421) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUN 16, 2016
Cask @ Dirty Dicks, Halifax. Blonde with a smooth head. Hoppy ale with its strength fairly hidden, and a dry fruitiness which is most stated in its nose, alongside a floralness.

maeib (8749) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - AUG 27, 2008
Cask conditioned - gravity dispense - Peterboro BF 2008. A slightly hazy golden coloured beer with a nice hoppy nose with lemons and pineapple. Sweet in the mouth like pineapple fizz bombs. Decent enough but the sum of chinook and Mount Hood should produce a spanker.

hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 22, 2008
UPDATED: SEP 6, 2010 Cask, gravity, at Peterborough BF 08. Pale gold. Sweet, almost sugary aroma with just a little lurking sourness. maeibs unerring nose accurately identified the fruit I was looking for: pineapple. Taste is soft and fruity with biscuit in the background and a final mid bitter rush. Full of interest. 6.9.10, Cask, gravity at the Pig n Falcon, St Neots, Cambridgeshire.To be honest I thought this was more copper than my previous pale gold. In addition to the above comments, I noted hair oil and wet dog. Rating:6,3,6,4,11:3.0

Fin (10157) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 29, 2008
Cask at Merton Summer Beer Festival July 18th and 19th 2008 Light golden pour with white frothy quickly disappearing head. Plenty of grapefruit on the nose but not a lot else. Taste is dry and really quite bitter initially that grapefruit come bounding back along but there is a little malt to give this beer a bit more character its really quite refreshing and a decent drop.

A Mes rate: Gravicask at Fins excellent Merton Beer Festival.
Hazy yellow gold with a thin white head and yet more evidence of Fin’s hard work to keep all the beers at the festival in sparkling form. Assertive lemon sherbet hop aroma with a decent malty backbone. The flavour follows on really well. The hops are very good and give bags a fruity character. The earthy malt is adorable and it is all wrapped up in a really pleasing dry bitter finish. Straight forward English class. Jolly good.

StueyD (1579) - Heacham, Norfolk, ENGLAND - OCT 24, 2006
A golden, hazy beer with a thickish white head. A distinct citrus fruit aroma, along with a touch of malt. The taste is dry, citrusy fruit flavours accompanied by a slightly sweet malty taste that does make the finish slightly bitter. (Cask - The Fox & Hounds, Heacham, Norfolk).

Cask (handpulled) at the Flowerpot, Derby. Pale gold, a fair old citrus whiff, tame lemons in the taste, slightly sour alcohol, expected a bigger taste for the ABV.
