3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. It pours a clear, dark amber colored body and a finger-thick, off-white head. The aroma is lightly roasted and bready, some piney notes in the back. Caramel and some prunes too. Quite pleasant, in a nice way. A bit thin on the palate, soft carbonation. Dry. Roasted and caramel-ish flavor with a nice bitterness kicking in towards the end. A quite nice one, although a bit too British for my preferences. 120405

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
500ml bottle from Sainsbury. Attractive deep orange colour. Thin white head. Some GK yeast character on aroma, bit of cheese even. Then some spicy toffee also on the aroma. The Abbot Reserve I thought was better. But there is some interesting character there from the older ale used in this. That cheese for a start, but also a ton of malt character too. Settles down into a bit of a sipper to be honest. Just about the best GK beer I’ve had. Wow, this is half decent. Very drinkable and makes you want to go back to it. About the only GK beer I’d happily introduce other RBers to. Even thinking of taking it to LCRBM5. It’ll make up for the Mack beers I’m taking anyway. Any filtering or pasteurisation doesn’t affect it too much. Decent dessert/cheese beer. Would be good with a decent medium cheddar. Yes, it has done that hardest thing, it has won me round from my original scepticism and lack of interest in GK beers. Pretty good
