Pours copper brown, thin head. Nose is lots of sweet caramel malt. Taste is lots of fruit, with pineapple coming through. Dry hop finish, little bit chalky dry in mouth, but very nice overall.

Clear medium amber color with a average, frothy, good lacing, mostly lasting, off-white head. Aroma is moderate malty, roasted, light caramel - nutty, light coffee. Flavor is moderate sweet and light to moderate bitter with a average to long duration. Body is medium, texture is watery to oily, carbonation is soft to flat. [20100804]

Sigmund (6108) - Tau, NORWAY - MAR 24, 2011
Cask at The Old Explorer (a GK pub), London, under its assumed alias London Glory. Beautiful mahogany colour, coarse small off-white head. No aroma detectable. Thin mouthfeel. Dry flavour, moderate hops. Drinkable, but not exciting. You’d think GK should be able to come up with something better than this.

harrisoni (16047) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - DEC 29, 2010
Cask handpull at Betjamen Arms, St Pancras station. Darkish brown, thin beige head. Some GK yeast over an ok if underwhelming bitter. Some bitterness on finish. It’s ok-ish. GK yeast runs through it. I mean it is a bitter so ticks those boxes. Not unpleasant.

[3257-20100803] Cask sample. Green wet peas and grainy malt aroma. Clear, amber brown body with a quick foamy white head. Leafy grains malt flavour. Medium body seems a little thin. Meh, not great.
