Pint on draught. Clear golden colour with a good, frothy head that dissipates but leaves a good lacing. Fairly mild aroma with some yeast. Slight sweetness, some roasted malt flavours, a little toast and a moderate bitterness. Not quite balanced enough, needs some more bitterness or some astringency, but a passable session beer.

Little aroma or taste - thin looking and watery with thin white head and little carbonation. Ok on tongue and in mouth. Not the best.

Canít believe I havenít rated the most maligned real ale! Cask at the Assembly Rooms, Epsom (JDW). Pours mid brown with a white head. Aroma of caramel and toffee with the GK "taste". Bitter finish. Clearly not an IPAD but if you take it for what it is maybe not so bad.

Appearance is clear amber. Aroma is nearly nonexistent. Taste is pretty bland with very little bitter hops for an IPA. Overall not a good example of an IPA.

Drank while on a recent business trip to England -- on cask, decent English ale. Not at all on par with American IPAs. Very simple and low abv.

Pours a half finger of head on a medium straw body. The aroma is hay and a barnyard. The taste is hay, earthy, dirt and more barn. The texture is soft. Itís okay.

Deep amber with a decent head. No distinctive aroma but i had a head cold. Good solid beer with roasty malts and low bitterness for an IPA.

Dark copper color with a creamy off white head that leaves a nice lacing. Floral hoppy, fruity and toffee aroma. Medium body. Tad sweet and a moderate bitterness. Floral, fruity and toffee in the flavor. Nice easy drinkable ale.

Cask. Pours amber color, creamy, lasting head, nice lacing. Fresh aroma of herbs, fruits, tea. Ice tea. Taste is fruity, malty, thin, watery body, almost no bitterness. Drinkable and refreshing after tiring day.
