A reddy brown coloured beer with a whitish head. A fruity aroma with some toffee notes, but deliberate and not diacetyl. Jammy in the mouth with good alcohol notes. Nice and fruity and malty. Really surprisingly good. Shows that GK can brew really good beer if they try.

Cask by hand-pump at Sir John Moore, Glasgow - clear amber brown, thick creamy head, sweet malty aroma, good film of lacing, rich creamy toffee malty flavour, smooth, easy to drink for the abv

UPDATED: SEP 20, 2016 Nice fruit aroma with bubblegum. Caramel taste with good strength/ kick. Can see why it would be favoured in Winter. Really enjoyed and will drink again. Second pint one year later and even better. Third tasting and continues to impress. Amber colour.

[email protected] avion, aldridge. Dark copper beer with tight medium head and decent lacing. Aroma of malts and caramel. Taste is sweet malts, toffee, caramel and some dark fruits. A little spice is thrown in too. Light on the body. Decent enough, but would expect more from a ESA.

Cask @ The Angel JDW. Woah, Greene King whale watch!! The pour’s deep amber with a tiny head. The nose is spiced fruit cake, ginger powder, some of that distinct GK yeastiness. The taste is plum, brown bread. Acidic red apple tang. General mineral. More yeast. Leather. Dry finish. Medium body, fine carbonation. Overall, actually not terrible. One of GK’s better ones...

Draught. This was a bit of a let down. I was expecting a beer with more ommph.
