cask at No. 2 Baker’s Street in Stirling - Pours dark amber-red with a lasting, off-white head. It has a minimal aroma mostly of grainy malt. The flavor is caramel malt with light bitterness. It’s light to medium bodied and pretty good overall. It would be improved if it was a bit more aromatic.

Cask at Cumberland bar ... i only popped in cause i was passing... and its usually got nothing ... Imagine my amazement to find 2 new ticks ... then my disappointment to find they were both Green King ... Still this one was worth the discovery ... deep red brown ... ovaltine toffee nose ... sweet toffee malts ... little blackcurrant ... little ovaltine ... DARE I SAY IT... while lacking the body and the it has tones that remind me of WESTVLETERN 12 ...

I love this beer, despite its dubious heritage. Dark and sweet, very drinkable, and a bit different.

Draught @ Clockwork Beer Co. Brewpub, 153-1155 Cathcart Road, Mount Florida, Glasgow G42 9BH, Scotland. [ As Westgate Ale Pril Fool ].
Clear medium to dark red brown color with a average, frothy, good lacing, mostly lasting, off-white head. Aroma is moderate malty, roasted - nutty, creamy caramel. Flavor is moderate sweet and light to moderate nutty bitter with a average to long duration. Body is medium, texture is oily and smooth, carbonation is soft to flat. [20090410]

Rodders (137) - Norwich, Norfolk, ENGLAND - APR 22, 2009
(Cask at Waterfront, Diss) Another Greene King ’guest’ ale. Dark red with a small white head. Toffeish malt and some red fruit, berries all in the aroma. Taste is sugary sweet fruit with some malt backing and a little hop bitterness to finish. Was nice with the chedder I was eating. Smooth and medium bodied. Unimpressive - an average bitter really. Ok.

downender (6445) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - APR 21, 2009
Cask-conditioned at the Bishops Tavern, Bristol 21/04/09. Brown with a slight, off-white head. Indifferent malty brew, with some fruit and sweetness and not much else. Forgettable.

imdownthepub (10581) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - APR 4, 2009
Cask conditioned at The Old Bookbinders, Oxford. Dark brown with white head. Quite sweet and overbearing fruity, bordering on a sicky flavour then the trademark G.K hop which I really can’t get on with. Not very pleasant.
