Cask in the Ship in Exeter. Looks like an old school pub, but oh no it’s 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. I’d happily drink this again.

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.

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

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

UPDATED: APR 29, 2011 Cask at the City Barge, Strand-on-the-Green, rating 2.2, 25 April. This is the dullest beers I’ve tasted in a little while. It’s not actually bad - it’s a bit biscuity and dry, and it’s 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.
