Gelada (12) - ENGLAND - MAR 27, 2003
A solid session beer, not much more needs to be said. The balance of hops, malt and alcohol good for a longer night's drinking.

SilkTork (5157) - Rochester, Kent, United Kingdom, Kent, ENGLAND - MAR 26, 2003
UPDATED: MAR 12, 2005 Can. Clean, soft and dry. Quite drinkable with some hint of apple. Lacks character, but is quite inoffensive.

brewboy (152) - AUSTRALIA - MAR 1, 2003
A refreshing ale with a slight taste of granny smith apples. Nice creamy head. No need to rush out to taste one.

PorterPounder (5341) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - FEB 22, 2003
Nice malty aroma - dark copper colored appearance. Medium head - with a fair amount of lacing. Flavor is a great balance of hops and malts. Great session ale - could see having several of these - goes down well - just the right amount of bitterness.

imdownthepub (9954) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 15, 2003
This is a bog standard session ale, not too bitter, not too sweet, right amount of nose. After 5 pints you are still standing and discussing all the normal stuff. I prefer many other session beers but as a standby this is o.k

   AROMA 9/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 5/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 13/20
ToadMan (559) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - FEB 12, 2003
I absolutly love the aroma, reminiscent of a belgian strong, lots of hops, floral notes and a bit of pine. The color is dark brown with a creamy lace. The taste however is rather plain, has some hops and a slight very plesant citrusy hint. Its very mild in all regards, low carbonation gives it a creamy mouth feel that I quite enjoyed. In the end its just too watery and lacks rich flavor.

Aurelius (4028) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JAN 30, 2003
Deep nut brown with nice froth, something bothers me about the greene king -- he appears a little foppish. So let's split the difference and call the appearance a 4. Nice aroma freshly opened. Flavor has got raisin notes, decent Kent/Fuggles hopping against a moderately sweet brew, but the palate ends up a little watery and a little tinny. Not bad, just a little ragged, and given the choice I'd much prefer Greene King Abbot.

jgb9348 (4628) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - JAN 10, 2003
Caramel in colour, great dense head. Real fruity smell. Very light pub ale with fruity characteristics!

nigos (631) - Ipswich, Suffolk, ENGLAND - JAN 2, 2003
Very weak and bland in taste with a rusty after taste. Below average beer

ogivlado (5539) - Zagreb, CROATIA - DEC 25, 2002
Sampled draught in some pub in London, England. - hoppy nose, thin body, drinkable but not so good
