Bootlegger007 (17) - AUSTRALIA - AUG 23, 2014
Sweet floral aroma, clear golden colour with small white diminishing head, I found it lacked much flavour was a decent basic ale but lacked character, had a light body with mild carbonation

AlbionOakley (31) - Poulton, Lancashire, ENGLAND - AUG 7, 2014
This is a really lovely beer even from a can, golden colour not such a good head but great body. Lightly carbonated with a strong hoppy flavour but not too bitter, refreshing finish ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Aroma: Malt: Medium, toffee, Hops: Medium, fresh cut vines, passion fruit, naartjie, vanilla. No DMS. No Diecetyl. Appearance: Gold, light copper, clear body. Small off-white head. Good retention. Flavour: Malt: Medium-light bread. Hops: fruity. Medium to Medium-high vanilla, oak on initial taste. Casked, wooden, Dry finish. Almost whisky like flavours. Honey. Medium sweetness, medium bitterness. Balance towards malt in taste, but a bitter aftertaste. Mouthfeel: Medium body, Medium carbonation. Dry finish. Overall: Quite a surprise. Very complex malt flavours. It tastes like a wood aged bitter. Exquisite. 500ml bottle, poured. Thanks Andre! 8A. Standard/Ordinary Bitter

500ml can from Carrefour, Xintiandi, Changchun. Pours golden with a thin white head. Great hoppy aroma, I’ve been missing decent beer. Long bitter finish. A decent beer, one of GK’s better efforts.

downender (6245) - 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.
