Cask in the Ship in Exeter. Looks like an old school pub, but oh no itís Greene King! Tried this in case it broke the trend. Light golden ale. Still had that soapy dishwater mouthfeel of a Greene King brew, slightly redeemed by a reasonably pleasant mild hop bitterness on the finish.

Cask conditioned handpump Eastgate Northampton 06/06/12 A copper to gold coloured beer with a whitish head and lacing. A typical Greene King yeasty note to this, with some sweet tea. Leafy hops. The yeast actually works really well here and is quite enjoyable. Iíd happily drink this again.

DnAuK (112) - South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUN 6, 2012
Dangerously drinkable with a sweet malty aroma and a sweet yet refreshing taste. Doesn't come across as being in excess of 4% at all. More like a shandy. Could drink this all day. Then fall over. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Malty aroma and taste, but has a weak texture that lets it down. Crisp.

Half a pint at the railway pub. Decent white head. Clear golden pour. Subtle hoppiness.

Leighton (10466) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 15, 2012
Cask at the Crosse Keys, JDW, London. Pours clear, shiny gold with a fine, foamy head. Sweet, doughy malt nose. Light to medium sweet flavor with some dry straw, doughy biscuits, and faint lemon tang. Light in body with fine carbonation. Mild sweetness to finish, lightly sticky with white sugar, some hay, light lemon and floral notes. Very basic.

BeerViking (2293) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 25, 2011
UPDATED: APR 29, 2011 Cask at the City Barge, Strand-on-the-Green, rating 2.2, 25 April. This is the dullest beers Iíve tasted in a little while. Itís not actually bad - itís a bit biscuity and dry, and itís drinkable - but it is even less interesting than GK IPA. I guess that means it is indeed a fitting tribute to the Royal Wedding. Re-rate at the Magpie & Crown, 29 April, far better with a good malty and bitter-sweet flavour.
