1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 2/20
Copper colour with a rapidly disappearing head. The initial skunky aroma settled down to a slightly toasty, sweet syrupy aroma. Tasted very watery with virtually no flavour at all.

1.4 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
As a such a low alcohol beer, not actually that bad. But forgetting that, pretty dull tasteless beer.

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 hadnít 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. Itís easy drinking, but itís quite pleasant and well balanced and thereís a decent amount of flavour for the strength, A surprisingly good effort from GK - well done!

28/04/12 - Bottle from Tesco Extra, a light one, a bit on the thin side. Not bad for low ABV.

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.

Bottled 500ml. -Clear amber coloured, small off-white head, slight herbal and butterscotch nose. Mild bitter hoppy, passion fruit and butterscotch taste with watery finish. Dryish finish. Has potential, especially with so small alcohol content.

Bottle 0,5ltr: Clear amber coloured brew with fruity and floral flavours, also some nice hoppiness. Quite great what they in England can make out of low alcohol brews.

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.
