downender (6391) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - JUN 20, 2014
Bottle. Deep gold with a momentary, white, head. Sweet malts, a hint of toast, stone fruits, a touch of soap, lime and a gentle finish. Would probably be better in a brown bottle, but I have had far worse from GK.

larsga (6255) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUN 16, 2012
Medium offwhite head. Clear coppery body with carbonation. Light caramelly peppery aroma with perfumy orangey notes. Dryish peppery fruity perfumy taste with orangey papery notes. Mid-bodied. Fizzy mouthfeel. Dry mealy papery orangey aftertaste with dusty perfumy notes. Not bad, but a bit perfumy for me. (0.5l bottle, Meny Ringnes Park, Oslo.)

KnutAlbert (6143) - Oslo, NORWAY - AUG 1, 2012
Another English golden ale, as if that was what we needed. Beautiful dark gold. The aroma is very English. Bittersweet flavour, hous character. Very drinkable, not at all challenging.

PorterPounder (5600) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - OCT 5, 2012
Tallahassee, Fl - Market Square Liquors - 12 oz bottle. Dark golden leading to copper pour with a tight white head that diminishes pretty quickly. Aroma has a hint of vanilla and butterscotch. Flavor has a nice subtle bitterness to it with some vanilla hints, a bit of nuttiness, some buttery notes and just a hint of spearmint in the back end. Mouthfeel is crisp. Good session starter.

b3shine (5577) - Indiana, USA - JUN 22, 2013
Bottle to half-pint glass (shared with the Mrs.). Looks solid; a transparent orange with thin white head that dissipates into lacing fairly quickly. Smells of light caramel with some doughiness and funkiness. Tastes like it smells with a solid mouthfeel. Okay for what it is.
