Ethereal (2471) - Los Angeles, California, USA - JAN 1, 2009
Cask at the Eastbourne Beer Festival, 9th Oct 2008. Yellow with a foamy head. Almost burnt aroma, with lots of floral notes. Great fruity and nutty flavours in the mouth and a good finish. A strong golden ale from a strong brewery. evilsoc (191) - WALES - OCT 31, 2008
Gravity at Swindon Beerex08. Poured yellow blonde. Deep, metallic, puckering, tea like hops with grassiness. Fairly one dimensional but satisfyingly bitter. HogTownHarry (7066) - Toronto (Harbourfront), CANADA - SEP 22, 2008
cask @ The Eagle (London - Old Street) First off, how unfair is it that THIS PLACE (essentially a wine bar now) has Sierra Nevada Pale Ale on tap and I can’t buy it in Ontario?!! Anyway. Slightly hazy light gold pour with an average creamy white head (normally a 3/5, but first pint of the day ...). Soft aroma of dried roses, slightly acidic, with a light cereal classic "golden ale" aroma. The taste follows, very soft, no alcohol presence at all, a good balance between soft light cereal malt and light floral bitterness. Soft, wheaty body, with mild floral astringency, leaves a dry finish on the tongue. Another excellent, if understated golden. MiP (15973) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - SEP 9, 2008
Cask at GBBF08. OK fruity aroma. Almost clear shiny yellow colour. Very nice fruitiness in the flavour, flowery and slightly sweet. Refreshing and nice. bman1986 (173) - Broadstairs, Kent, ENGLAND - AUG 18, 2008
Cask at The Fleur De Lis, Sandwich: Light grassy yellow. Very hoppy and light pale ale. Really refreshing and easy to drink. Top notch pale ale.

A lovely pale yellow beer with a nice crisp white head and a nose of sharp grapefruit and lemon turning to summery fruit in the mouth with an almost piney minty hop finish. Refreshing! berkshirejohn (6662) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - AUG 14, 2008
Cask at the Smithfield, Derby. Straw with a dense white head; fresh floral aroma; taste has herbal hops and powdered ginger, giving a long, warming, ginger finish. Very pleasant. cluny6 (115) - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - JUL 21, 2008
UPDATED: DEC 27, 2008 Pour like a JHB but with more head. Aroma is very hoppy with lots of citrics undertones. Taste is the same. A very good beer. A MrRomero (1976) - Nolanville, USA - JUN 12, 2008
Half pint at the brewpub: Poured a clear yellow with a fizzy white head. Mild pine aroma. The flavor is similar to all the other beers I had here with mild pine and citrus notes. One doesn’t distinguish itself from the others. Watery finish. Nothing special. bobinlondon (1297) - Harrow, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 3, 2008
Gravicask at the Lower Red Lion beer fest, St. Albans. Handpulled cask at JDW Watford and JDW Hatch End Harrow. I just can’t get enough of this beer! Pale yellow with a lasting white head. Fantastic hop aroma and flavour. Luscious citrussy bitterness. I can’t believe a beer brewed with only english hops can taste like this! Superb!
