3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
[500ml bottle, gift from Maureen & Dave - cheers!] I hadn’t yet tried any of the new 2.8% ales bought out since the tax changes, and thought it was a bit of a shame that the first one I got to try was from GK. I shared it with my brother who (without knowing what he was drinking) said with some distaste "this taste a bit Greene Kingish". And yes, it does have some of their typical caramel and toffee notes in it. But it also has some soft and pleasant hops - lemon, orange and peach. It’s easy drinking, but it’s quite pleasant and well balanced and there’s a decent amount of flavour for the strength, A surprisingly good effort from GK - well done!

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
500ml bottle. Clear orangey dark amber colour, foamy white head that diminishes leaving some lacing, and a malty mash aroma. Taste is malt and grain, sweetish toffee, with a slight bitterness and a dry finish. Light watery body and medium carbonation. OK considering the low strength.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
A medium to dark amber coloured beer with a weak white head. A potent skunky aroma to start with, which is followed up with a slightly sweet malt aroma, hints of butterscotch, toffee and caramel. Medium-bodied, smooth mouthfeel. A medium-sweet taste of malt, there is a bready element that tags onto the toffee and caramel from the aroma, as well as a touch of honey and candy floss. After a while there is a light, prickly tang of hop, giving the beer a weak, fruity finish. Altogether a bit bland.
