3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Lightly hazy, light golden ale with a medium-sized, creamy, eggshell head. Thick, whispy lacework.
The nose is mild and doughy. Bisquit, butterscotch and light toffee. Butter too.
Mild and perfectly balanced flavor. Lightly bitter and tart.
Light-bodied with a creamy mouthfeel and feather-soft carbonation. Flat, boring finish. Ever hear of English comfort food? This is an English comfort beer.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a darkish-amber, thick creamy white head and oodles of lacing from the nitro tap. Aroma is fairly dead, but mildly malty. Flavor is bready, biscuity, somewhat sweet, minimal hop presence. Body is creamy, but somewhat thin. Might not be too bad if it wasn't for the nitro tap sapping it's aroma and some of the flavors away.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A classic from Doomsday brewery. Beautiful deep copper color with fine medium thick head. Fruity and hoppy/spicy aroma. Pleasantly caramelly and fruity, loaded with aromatic bitter hops in the finish. Greene King rules!
