From old tasting notes. Bright orange copper color. Huge rocky beige head. Toasted malt nose with a talcum powder backdrop. Toasted malt flavor upfront with a hint of bittersweet hop character. Light dryish bitter hop finish. Bitter tart aftertaste is long and tasty. Nice balance. Good lacework. Fin (10841) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 28, 2006
Cask conditioned at The Crown, Charlton On Otmoor 28-07-06. Dark reddish amber coloured beer, with a large frothy white head. A decent enough uncomplicated malty session bitter that provides us with an alternative to the ubiquitous GK IPA. imdownthepub (15160) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 19, 2006
Cask conditioned at a Wetherspoons. Darkish amber with a wisp of a head. Phew, what a surprise, Tolly Cobbold back on the menu, of course, this is 2 breweries later under the GK banner, but hey whatever. It always was a malty brew this one with a thinnish body but an ovaltine sweetness. I was never overkeen on TC beers and I’m glad to say that the GK tea like hop hasn’t taken over this. Only below average at best though. hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 11, 2006
Now presumably under the Greene King banner. Cask at The Three Tuns, Biddenham, Bedford. Dark amber. Pleasant malty aroma. Unassuming sweetish session beer with a little bitterness. haddonsman (1234) - Derby, Derbyshire, ENGLAND - OCT 24, 2005
Cask (handpulled) at the Babington Arms, Derby. Half decent malty bitter, easy going, solid session stuff

UPDATED: JUN 24, 2006 Jun 06 Cask conditioned @ Lord Raglan, Wokingham. Fruity malts and toasty caramel with tea like hops. Unsuprisingly this now distinctly GK tasting beer was not to my tastes. 2.4

Cask ConditionedUngstrup (38248) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAR 10, 2005
Beautiful amber color. Simple aroma, with notes of malt and caramel, yeast. Easy drinkable; ordinary bitter, with some yeast (bringing in some fruitness too).
[Cask at Charlie’s Bar, Copenhagen] A red beer with a nice orange head. The aroma is sweet with notes of berries, especially lingonberries, and malt. The flavor is malty, slightly roasty, and with a nicely hoppy and dry end. The mouthfeel is smooth, but the body is thin. Hildigöltur (5104) - København, DENMARK - MAR 10, 2005
[Cask conditioned] Brownish amber coloured. Sweetish and fruity aroma and flavour. Quite soft and tasty. MrWalker (926) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAR 8, 2005
Cask @ Akkurat, Stockholm 1 March 2005
Ruby brown. Slightly sweet. Malty toffee and harsh. Could use some more flowery hops at this strenght and as a session beer.
