COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Great Escape (4.0% abv) is brewed with pilsner lager malt. This snowflake-clear very light ale has a great depth of flavour. It is brewed using four different delicate blends of hops to give a citrusy seasonal orange taste and floral aroma. Why Great Escape? Because it’s always on at Christmas.

Towey1989 (2130) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 12, 2017
Cask at The Roebuck, Leek (Titanic) A clear straw colour with a medium white head. Aroma of cereal malts, slight lemon and some floral hops. Taste of lemon, subtle orange, some cereal malts and slight floral hops. Light bodied and soft carbonation. A soft, dryish, floral hop bitterness in the finish. Subtle citrus and floral hop aroma and flavour but overall quite bland.

Peteorn (13) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 3, 2017
Very pale ale. Poored well but soon lost its head. Sweet aroma and quick finish. Think I’ll swerve in future.

Hippoman (646) - Durham, ENGLAND - DEC 13, 2015
Cask at The Market Tavern, Durham, £3.55/pint. Very pale, straw-coloured beer with a smooth, white head. Weakly floral and sweet tropical fruit aroma and taste, with the taste also have a little crisp, biscuity, grainy backing. Light, refreshing and perfectly drinkable, but oh so dull.

imdownthepub (13720) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 28, 2014
Cask conditioned at Far From the Madding Crowd, Oxford. Yellow gold with white head. Quite a thin beer, slightly watery with a certain flowery, perfumed note. Some fruitiness later but little more than moving it from bland. Pretty average.

Martin243 (1065) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - JAN 5, 2014
1/2 at the Tilley stone Gateshead. Very light yellow with a white head. Floral aroma. Citrus and cereal flavour. Light bodied, slightly sour. Quite refreshing, but seems at odds with the season: Shouldn’t Christmas beer be dark and comforting?

ManVsBeer (8951) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - DEC 20, 2012
Pale yellow coloured ale with a small golden glow. Has a very small head and full of citrus notes that give it a tangy sour taste.
