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.

Senka (722) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - NOV 27, 2014
50cl bottle. Well matured. Simple old ale. Tangy, fruity hoppy. Numbing for some unknown reason. Has a distinctive Greene King taste. It is never bad. It is different form others, and they can reproduce it from batch to batch. Easy Thursday night drink.

Bottle 0,5ltr: Clear amber colored brew with an bitter taste and some fruity hints. IPA this one, no way but an delicous brew.

MichaelAwesome (4750) - Wanne-Eickel, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - AUG 7, 2014
Bottle from Tesco, Eastbourne shared with McTapps. Deep hoppy nose without being overloaded by citrus fruits. Some malt in the back. Smooth look, low carbo and foam. Develops a metalic background and a slightly sour aftertaste. Honestly said: Very average one.

McTapps (4751) - Ruhrcity, GERMANY - AUG 7, 2014
Pours out of the bottle in a amber-ruby colour with low head and flat body. Aroma of malt and hops with some sour mash hints. Taste of mild hops, barley, mild vinegar, nuts, bread and light whiskey. Easy drinkable yet nothing special.

500ml clear glass bottle - thanks marduk!
Almost decent sweet malty aroma, so greene king. Sweetish malty body, almost woody. Flatish palate, despite explosive introit. Finish sweetish, malty. Almost decent, nice aged feel.

suurjuust (1298) - ESTONIA - JUL 16, 2014
Orange beer, small soapy white head. Nose is grassy hops, caramel, malt. Flavor is sweet and malt, caramel notes, dry finish with weak hops. Pretty forgettable stuff.

Drunk from 50cl bottle bought in Wakefield, UK. Pretty standard IPA but no strong hoppy flavour. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
