fiulijn (14609) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 9, 2012
Cask at Cockney Pub, Århus; just tapped
Hazy blond color, with sparse head. The aroma I light, with whispers of malt, toffee and manure. Crispy malt flavor, with some toffee; dry but smooth mouthfeel; good hopping with just a grassy hint.
Very fresh, light, drinkable.

Leighton (11030) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 6, 2012
Cask at the Red Lion, Twickenham, London. A rare GK beer! Pours clear, yellow-gold with a tight, white cream head. Nose is all sunny straw with nips of lemon. Has a lightly sweet flavor with plenty of biscuity malts, light dough and some sweet lemon and light lime, too. Light bodied with fine, smooth carbonation. Very good condition. Mild sweetness on the finish with lightly toasted dough, white sugar, wimpy lemon and other citrus, and some faintly tangy grass. It’s a pretty standard golden ale, but it does refresh a good bit.

imdownthepub (10297) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - APR 21, 2012
Cask conditioned at The Turf Tavern, Oxford. Gold with white head. Sharp, metallic malt note overlaid with the tea like, spruce G.K twang. It is the typical taste from this brewery. I really don’t get this flavour but I was with others that do and who went back for more, so it’s down to personal taste really.

maeib (8726) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - JUN 3, 2012
Cask conditioned handpump Lion & Lobster Brighton 22/05/12. A vivid orange gold coloured beer with a whitish head and lacing. Decent citrussy Summery hops with oranges and lemons. The malt backbone is OK and there’s only a hint of the GK house yeast. Served too warm which is a shame as this is a decent golden ale which proves that GK can brew good beer when they try.
