Cask. Copper ale with a good cream head. Good hoppy head with mango and lemons. Sweet malty in the taste with light lemon, orange and a aspartame type aftertaste. It’s ok, but nothing overly special.

Amber-copper colour. Not really much aroma. Taste is actually more English, at least in terms of the bitterness and chewy malt balance. Nice beer.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cask at the Tilly Shilling (JDW), Farnborough. Hazy amber with a dense cream head; grainy aroma; served a touch too cold for my liking - even though it’s a very pleasant summer afternoon; the body is sweet and grainy, with a good level of fresh grassy bitterness that kicks in immediately; this turns out to be long lasting and lingers over a sweet digestive biscuit finish. A rather good effort from GK - more please!

Cask conditioned handpump Wig & Pen Northampton 29/04/13. A bright orangey gold coloured beer with a nice white head and a little lace. Actually looks really nice in the glass. A really good hoppy beer. Tons of citrus and a little soap which can be really nice in the mouth. Lots of US hopping. Seems a bit Amarilo like to me. Late spicy sting. Good bitterness. Really rather good. Well done.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cask at Christian Firtal. The best bitter I have had in a long time. Good of GK to take some inspiration from American brewing to brew such a fine bitter. Slightly hazy dark golden with a small white head. The aroma has toffee and breadcrust, fruity currant and raspberry notes and a touch of grass. Dryish malty flavour with fruity character, some grass and nettles and a mild bitter finish. Refreshing and very tasty.

Cask at The Wharf, Aalborg, Denmark
Deep blond color with small head. Very simple aroma, light malt. Totally flat, no vibe, a bit oily (and too warm); simple flavor, with moderate bitterness, and a light metallic feeling; very light grassy touch too.
