Rune (11744) - Troms, NORWAY - DEC 14, 2008
Half pint, fresh and kicking cask, hand pulled at Aikmans Cellar Bar in St Andrews. Deep, dark amber body under a small skinny strip of foam. Malt-fruity smell. Hints of caramel malts that works pretty well together with an underlying throughout going bitterness. Dry and easy to drink [04.11.2008].

gary07734 (500) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - NOV 29, 2008
Typical coppery bitter pint look with a creamy head. Quite viscous drinking, taste is citrus hops, touch of malt, medium bitter finish. Ok if a little forgettable.

downender (8270) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - MAY 20, 2008
Cask-conditioned at the Swan, Tockington Gloucs 20/5/08. Reddish amber with no head. Red fruit and caramel aroma with a touch of earthy hops. Easy drinking, with a sweetish flavour, some spicy hops and a good bitter finish. Surprisingly good for a GK beer.

FatPhil (15129) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAY 19, 2008
Cask (Zebra, Cambridge)
Deep orange, frothy head. A bit sweet, but a decent malty body. Normally (since GK) this isnt so good, but this was an exceptional sample. Tasted like it was made from real hops rather than nervegas. Solid English bitter.

zach8270 (4022) - Henrietta, New York, USA - APR 13, 2008
(cask @ The Old Toad - Rochester, NY) Dark orange pour with a foamy white head. Aroma is rich and malty with a little fruity sweetness to it. Flavor is smooth and sweet with some caramel malts and a light touch of hay and hops. Finishes semi-sweet and leaves a light bitter on the tongue.

evilsoc (191) - WALES - APR 4, 2008
Cask at The Windmill, Swindon. Served way too cold so aroma was killed off. It was in decent condition otherwise, moderate malt and earthy bitterness. I didnt really enjoy it despite the decent hop content.
