1.7 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
There are lots of very good arguments about why beer shouldn’t be packaged in clear glass bottles, normally I agree with them in general but in IPA Gold’s case that would have meant missing out on it’s beautiful golden colour. Unfortunately the colour is the best thing about this ale. The aroma is typical of Greene King and always reminds me slightly of stale cigarette smoke. The beer is not quite insipid, but definitely watery and lacking in flavour and despite pouring a good initial head it rapidly falls. All-in-all rather disappointing.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Served in a tulip from a 500ml bottle. Pours clear lemon-gold colour with a white head. Aroma is caramel, grass, slightly floral and metallic with stale tea notes. Taste is grass, stale cold weak tea (?) and not much else, very mildly and watery bitter-sweet. Watery and thin body with lively carbonation. Nothing special, quite dull and uninteresting.

From bottle, pours golden with small white head. Aroma is slightly tropical, metallic, spice and biscuit. Taste is mild in all ways, bitter and sweet. Rather fizzy however overall pretty easy drinking. Not terrible but certainly not special.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Light amber ale with short-lasting head and above average carbonation. Full aroma of lemon, marmite, hops. Lots of fizz in the light slightly watery taste, with lemon, biscuit, grass. Quite dry. Medium bitter finish with some smokey undertones. Not bad, but needs more taste and less fizz.
