Great Escape (4.0% abv) is brewed with pilsner lager malt. This snowflake-clear very light ale has a great depth of flavour. It is brewed using four different delicate blends of hops to give a citrusy seasonal orange taste and floral aroma. Why Great Escape? Because itís always on at Christmas.

Hippoman (646) - Durham, ENGLAND - DEC 13, 2015
Cask at The Market Tavern, Durham, £3.55/pint. Very pale, straw-coloured beer with a smooth, white head. Weakly floral and sweet tropical fruit aroma and taste, with the taste also have a little crisp, biscuity, grainy backing. Light, refreshing and perfectly drinkable, but oh so dull.

imdownthepub (13032) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 28, 2014
Cask conditioned at Far From the Madding Crowd, Oxford. Yellow gold with white head. Quite a thin beer, slightly watery with a certain flowery, perfumed note. Some fruitiness later but little more than moving it from bland. Pretty average.

Martin243 (1006) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - JAN 5, 2014
1/2 at the Tilley stone Gateshead. Very light yellow with a white head. Floral aroma. Citrus and cereal flavour. Light bodied, slightly sour. Quite refreshing, but seems at odds with the season: Shouldnít Christmas beer be dark and comforting?

ManVsBeer (8490) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - DEC 20, 2012
Pale yellow coloured ale with a small golden glow. Has a very small head and full of citrus notes that give it a tangy sour taste.
