Fin (7697) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 6, 2007
Cask/Gravity at The Swan Beer Festival, Islip 05-10-07 Pours warm gold with good clarity the merest whiff of hops. Slightly medicinal flavour, in fact this tastes like drinking beer with a squirt of toothpaste added at the same time, sweet totally devoid of character.

KnutAlbert (6267) - Oslo, NORWAY - OCT 4, 2007
Cask, Wetherspoon, Heathrow, Terminal 4. Nice malty ale, full flavour, but like many English golden ales, it could have done with more of a bite. Some flowery hops in the (rather short) finish.

Cask Counting house glasgow ... Nice copper ... sweet toffe malts ... lots of rich bitter caramel fruit malts ... definite toffee notes ... all round not bad but id rather lose the bitter edge. Served a bit cold. None the less i was suprised how much iejoyed the GK outing

DonMagi (5596) - bantervile, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 3, 2007
Counting House as Hooker No2. Aroma is caramel and sulphury, hints at apply sweetness. Taste is similar cloying not a good beer in any way.

imdownthepub (10653) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 25, 2007
Cask conditioned at a Wetherspoons. Gold amber with white head. Boring flat beer, thin, eggy and cereal. There is the raw tea GK (is it?) hop note with a little boiled cabbage on the side. Poor stuff.

maeib (8750) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - SEP 15, 2007
Cask conditioned - handpump - Briar Rose, Birmingham. A golden bitter with a whitish head. The aroma is thin but there is a faint trace of sulphur in there. The taste is grassy with more sulphur notes. Dull.

harrisoni (14138) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - SEP 12, 2007
Cask handpull at The Drum Inn, Stanford North. I guess this is brewed for the Rugby World Cup. Gold, lasting beige head. Hoppy grassy aroma. Sweetish citrus fruits. Good cellarman works here I think as the beers are always in good nick even if they are GK. Bit of peach or rose petal. Malts are a little syrupy in mouth. It’s a little too sweet for me. I prefer something more bitter. Fruits rather than hops on finish, although there is a hop presence. Inoffensive.

hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 1, 2007
Presumably a Rugby World Cup themed product. Cask at The Banker’s Draft (JDW), Bedford. Amber with a small white head. Fresh apply aroma. Fruity taste with a little sweet malt. Slight sourness and bitterness. Fair but nothing special.
