COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask: Special - January, 2009
Abstain from your usual tipple with this fine seasonal ale. Dark in colour but with a refreshingly light, fruity taste and a splendid bitter linger this intriguing ale is the perfect start to the New Year.

maeib (8672) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - FEB 11, 2009
Cask conditioned - handpump Racehorse Northampton A nearly black beer with a whitish soapy head. The aroma has licquorice but also a bit of vinegar. The taste has both of those together with a hint of chocolate. This shows potential but wasnít at its best Iím sure.

cgarvieuk (14194) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - FEB 9, 2009
Cask at Cloisters Edinburgh ... Deep red brown ... sweet toffee malt nose ... pealy wally ... sweet fruit malts ... no real depth... but suprisingly drinable and more flavour if not depth than expected.

hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 24, 2009
Cask at Wellington Arms, Bedford. Amber with a small off white head. Etiolated in all areas: thin malt aroma and taste; slight ashy bitterness; not worth the trouble.

MesandSim (7119) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 21, 2009
A Mes rate. Cask at the Ranelagh. Typically bland GK offering. Burnt caramel malt. Some apple and vanilla and just a very slight hint of citrus. Watery caramel finish. Iíve had worse from GK but itís still arse.

imdownthepub (10170) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 17, 2009
Cask conditioned at The Wine Vaults, Banbury. Gold amber with white head. Popped in this pub on a tip off and yes this was on. All the hall marks of a similar ABV GK beer currently being sold cheaply, tea like dusty dry vegetal note with very thin malt. Not good.
