Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I see. I think we only have dead beers in Sweden.


However GK have perfected a process where the beer "drops bright", ie looks cosmetically acceptable, in just a few hours. However, the beer thus served is pretty kack and that, sadly, is the GK real ale IPA you'll get served in most pubs in the UK.

What i'm saying is that, if you give it time to settle, it's actually a really good beer, but GK don't do this.

So it is GK in their role as pub chain that is the real problem. Ok, another non-brit question: Is the UK pub market to a large part owned by breweries?

Yes, it's GK distribution and sales that is at fault.

No the UK pub market is now largely in the hands of independent owners who are doing their best to destroy the pubs as businesses. (It's more lucrative to sell off the building for other purposes)

An essay on this subject is being built
