500ml Bottle. Im a big fan of GK IPA Gold but cant stand their ordinary IPA, so I was viewing this beer with mixed feelings. It pours a reddish brown with a medium thin white head. Its aroma is sweet, hops, with toasted malts and caramel. It tastes citrusy but with a twang of toasted malts and a bitterness towards the end. I quite like this and will have again.

2016 catch up - bottle at home - To me there was a strong taste of caramel in the beer and it completely overpowered everything else. There was some malt and bitter hops, but the caramel was everywhere! Two drunk because they were part of the mixed pack, but this is not one that I would want again.

Surprisingly good. Not very bitter for an IPA, full of sweetness and a rounded maltiness. Some fruit in the taste with a nice refreshing finish.

Bottle. Orangey Gold in colour. Malty; biscuity malts, caramel, hint of vanilla. Fruity; orange citrus. Hoppy; floral and herbal hops. Sweet malty fruity throughout leading to a dry bitter finish. Drinkable. (2012-11-30)

Sigmund (7920) - Tau, NORWAY - NOV 1, 2016
500 ml clear bottle, from a cornershop in London.ABV is 5.4%. Deep golden to amber colour, large white (or slightly off-white) head. Strong Heineken-like aroma of lightstruck hops, not unpleasant though. Also notes of nuts, toffee and caramel. Drunk too cold. The flavour is a bit on the sweet side, with nutty notes, some lightly roasted malts, and a little caramel.
