2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
On tap at Crown & Anchor in Eastbourne. Pours out in a hazy brown colour with low head and flat body. Aroma of light malt and bread., Taste of bread, malt, acid berries and basement. Dull and boring to drink with no deepness. Awful stuff.

On tap at Eastbourne shared with McTapps. Had two on that day and this one was more or less awful. Brown and dull with a bit of malt and some russian style malt syrup. Developed some taste of chocolate in the end but until that it was more or less undrinkable.

On tap at Turf Tavern in Oxford. Malty and bready smell, toasty. Similar taste but mild. Hint of banana. Mild bitterness. Smooth mouthfeel.

Pint på Royal national. Klassisk engelsk öl när den är som bäst. Bärnstensfärgad. Doftar citrusfrukter. Smakar bröd och citrus.

Really thick frothy head. Deep dark red colour. Quite bitter, and refreshing bite. Oaky malt flavours.

cask @ Who-Thought it Rochester; this is almost like a sweet Dopplebock in some regards but with out the booze and otherwise structure . .But there is similar Toffee apple syrupy palate that holds on to your tounge . A good pint of ale , the malt complexity is right there !

Darkish bitter with no aroma whatever. I would have given it zero for this feature but the system doesn’t allow me to. Doughy and rather flat palate which doesn’t encourage quantity drinking. It kind of finishes but has anybody ever noticed? Really dismal stuff. What on Earth do they make it from?

Dear God this is truly abysmal. My 1st GK beer for a long while and certainly my last. Has that terrible pungent sour GK smell that verges on manure. The palate is all over the place, between sweet malt and harsh astringency. A realeffort to finish. Possibly a beer that hadn’t been taken care of on the cellar, but I won’t be going near it again.
