500ml Bottle. Im a big fan of GK IPA Gold but cant stand their ordinary IPA, so I was viewing this beer with mixed feelings. It pours a reddish brown with a medium thin white head. Its aroma is sweet, hops, with toasted malts and caramel. It tastes citrusy but with a twang of toasted malts and a bitterness towards the end. I quite like this and will have again.

Barwa: głęboko bursztynowa/ miedziana, klarowna. Piana biała, drobno pęcherzykowa, obfita, ale dość szybko opadająca. Wysycenie niskie. [ Aromat: kwiatowo cytrusowy, alkoholowy, z nutami karmelu. Smak: słodowy z lekką goryczką i owocami - trochę perfumowany. Wyczuwalna także nuta alkoholowa. Green King produkuje kilka niezłych piw i sporo przeciętnych. IPA Reserve lokuje się gdzieś pośrodku. Nie jest fantastycznym piwem, o którym będę pamiętał przez długi czas, ale też nie męczyłem się pijąc je i w sumie przyjemnie mnie zaskoczyło. Niewiele angielskich IPA przypadło mi do gustu, jednak ta nawet dała radę. Mam jeszcze kilka ale z tego browaru, zatem niebawem zobaczymy, jak sobie poradzą.

kerenmk (2001) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - JAN 18, 2014
Bottle sample at a tasting at Dancing Camel. Thanks TomL. Clear dark amber. Skunky - but in a good way - sweet fruity hoppiness and then soap. Sweet, cardboard taste. Dry sensation in the mouth, light body, sweetish finish.

At a tasting, thanks tom,smallish creamy head, clear and just a little light amber colour, aroma of herbs and tobbaco with some biscuit, flavour of soap and barnyard with a touch of malt. Not too inspiring and quite dull.
