Cask (gravity) Peterborough BF and Smithfest 2, 2008. Ticks the pale, fruity Thornbridge boxes with a hop stamp, albeit with a crepe sole rather than a steel-toecapped Doc Martin. That makes it a calmer and more contented brew compared to their usual output. Although you expect another hop kick, and in not getting it feel its undersold, it’s still analmost assured beer with real self-restraint.

Cask at peterborough beer fest. Alround rating: Pale and sweet richer malts, citrus lemon hop character. Super ronnie suprise, party shack of disco dance, 2 fingers on the ****, rochefort in hand, high five.... MesandSim (7117) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 2, 2008
A Mes rate: gravicask at Peterborough Beer Festival.maeib (8749) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - AUG 27, 2008
Pale gold with a thin white head. Typical Thornbridge blonde stuff really. The C hops are not as clear as I would like but there is a good amount of citrus showing. Decent level of bitterness. Straight forward and as a festival special this seems a little rushed to me.
Cask conditioned - gravity dispense - Peterboro BF 2008. A light gold coloured beer with reasonable lemony hops in the aroma and taste. Fairly bitter and decent enough, but Thornbridge can do tons better and the chosen hops should also lead to a far tastier beer. Is it the festival’s fault? I’d err on the side of saying yes. It just tasted understated. hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 22, 2008
Cask, gravity, at Peterborough BF ’08. Gold. Nettly, citric hop aroma. Lemony taste, mid bitter finish. It’s good but predictable.
