RichardGretton (4177) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - OCT 2, 2013
Cask. Amber beer with a strong frothy head. The aroma is yeasty, and the flavour is mildly bitter with an element of yeasty hoppyness. Overall an average mildly hopped beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

kwik-lime (1159) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 28, 2013
Not much hop character to this one but a pleasant enough smooth mouthful with some orange marmalade notes in the finish. Surprisingly decent.

JorgeLee (1067) - Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 26, 2013
Cask at St Margaretsbury CC. Light golden colour with thickish white head. As per the bottled version, this Gold appears to hide some of the house dishwater character, and has some pleasant fruity hop notes. Nothing special but drinkable.

JanLaursen (2731) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - OCT 19, 2012
Draft at The Cambridge, London. Clear golden amber with a small white head. Flowery and malty with faint hints of caramel, honey and flowery hops. Taste is medium sweet pale malts, flowery, light citrusy, with a slightly metallic and rather short finish. Watery texture - not exactly packed with flavor, too restrained to be interesting.

wheresthepath (1467) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - OCT 9, 2012
[Cask at the Hinds Head, Bray, Berkshire - thanks to my wife for taking me!] Light amber with a moderate white head and a light, frothy carbonation. A mellow, fruity beer with orange and lemon flavours. Very comforting and happy-feeling, and a pleasant surprise coming from Greene King!

SarkyNorthener (1416) - Walsall (Yorkshire Expat), West Midlands, ENGLAND - SEP 23, 2012
Cask@Thebell, walsall. Gold colour with large white creamy head that had great lacing. Looks very nice. Very faint citrus aroma. Taste is of mild hops and hints of citrus. Tastes slightly stronger than Greene King IPA, whic isn’t hard to do. The palate is excellent, very smooth and creamy. Overall a good beer, the weakness in taste lets it down a bit though. Very easy to drink.

Theydon_Bois (7002) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - SEP 12, 2012
Cask at the ’Quinns Head’ pub inside Twickenham Stoop Rugby ground during half time of the Harlequins vs London Welsh game - 07/09/12. Clear golden with a medium white head that retains well. Floral hops in the aroma, citrus notes and slightly perfumed. Not as much of that usual GK smell! Tastes of hops, apricot, passion fruit, a decent mix of tropical fruits for GK, sweet malts. Medium bodied with moderate carbonation lending to a sweetish dry finish.
