500 ml bottle. Big burst of skunk when opened, though balanced a bit with caramel malt and citrus, grass hop. Clear amber, low bubbly head. Nicely fruity andnhoppy, with light caramel and good bready malts. No skunk here. Decent, but they must lose the clear bottles.

downender (6780) - 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.

drowland (6668) - Georgia, USA - NOV 20, 2012
11/20/12. On tap at Kickback’s. Light golden pour with a frothy off-white head that sticks. Buttery biscuit aroma with honey and pale malts. Light caramel, pale malts, soap, and butter in the flavor. Not a fan.

larsga (6621) - 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.)

b3shine (6379) - 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.
