jjsint (2379) - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - JUN 18, 2015
Cask at the Royal Standard, Ely. Dark gold/copper. Extremely thin white head and lacing. Clear. Flowery/fruity aroma, not very enticing. There is a slight metallic scent as well. Taste improves a bit, sweet with caramel and orange notes. Very basic and not the best beer in the world, but it’ll do.

olsvammel (6293) - Örebro, SWEDEN - JUN 20, 2014
On tap at Turf Tavern in Oxford. Labeled as Westgate Ale Fresco. Fruity and flowery with a light citrus. Similar taste. Slightly sweet. Could have used more hops to balance the sweetness.

scotty (1157) - SCOTLAND - JUN 20, 2013
Cask, labelled as Westgate (?) Ale Fresco, ’Spoons Hawick. Just been for a 7 mile walk in scorching heat, this is going down a treat! Medium body, lovely fruity hops, good malt presence, long finish. I’d have another but I’ve a bus to catch!

fairwater (146) - Reading, Berkshire, ENGLAND - MAY 23, 2013
Cask @ Warwick Arms. Mid gold, there’s a definite Greene-kingyness about it, either lemongrass or dishwashing detergent, haven’t quite decided. Drinkable. Just.

berkshirejohn (6077) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - MAY 17, 2013
Cask at the Old Manor (JDW), Bracknell. Pale chestnut with a tight cream head; citrus aroma; creamy in the mouth with some light citrus and stale malts; and a dry biscuity finish with not a hop in sight. Under whelming.

Jonb5 (508) - Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 16, 2013
Pint, from the cask. A: Bronze, copper, clear, small taned head, some retention. S: Floral, had to think of Saaz hops. T: Phenol, berries on the turn, finish slightly bitter and wheaty. Like some other Greene King beers it reminded me of a Belgian Pale Ale. M: Smooth, light body. O: Lots of depth for a bitter, very decent.

Cask by handpump at The Doublet, Glasgow - clear golden, creamy off-white head, weak resinous malty aroma, good lacing, sweet, honey, hint of resin, creamy texture, refreshing, served just a bit cold
