Hmmm, pours well with a lingering white head and full dark amber body. Smells of nothing particular and tastes the same. A very standard beer but reasonable and drinkable example.

ManVsBeer (8689) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - FEB 25, 2016
Cask @ White Swan, Hebden Bridge. Clear copper with a glow. Has a small creamy head. It’s a malty session bitter with a very malty-sweet nose.

jjsint (2333) - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - FEB 1, 2016
Pint at the Eagle, Cambridge. Auburn brown with a small loose cream-coloured head. Lots of lacing. Raspberries, chocolate, cola and oak reward you in the modest aroma. Fruity taste, very sweet, with only slight bitter undertones. Chocolate and raisin in the finish. Oily body. This is really good, especially considering the source.

Herbaciane piwo z puszystą pianą oraz drewnianym aromatem. W smaku lekko wodniste, leśne i drewniane z łagodną goryczką na finiszu.

The_Osprey (6351) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 5, 2015
Cask at The Swan, Pimlico as ’Greene King London Glory’. Dark orange, clear, still, small bubbly white head. Aroma is bread, resin, apple peel, a touch farty. Body is medium, smooth, low carbonation. Taste is malt syrup and bread, very light bitterness, breathy finish. About as basic as a bitter can get without it being insipid.

Cunningham (6976) - Halden, NORWAY - DEC 2, 2015
Amber color with a creamy off white head. Quite fruity and caramel malty aroma. A bit thin body and very soft carbonation. Tad sweet and a mild bitterness. Fruity and toffee in the flavor.
[Handpull in London, England]

Munken (2) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - NOV 4, 2015 does not count
Mild og frugtig ale med flot farve, god krop og god eftersmag. Måtte prøve 2 stk, idet den virkede lidt for overfladisk, hvilket 2. pint bekræftede. Men absolut en godkendt øl.

niquillis (2344) - Stoke on Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 1, 2015
Cask at Waterfront, Diss. Pours amber. Autumn fruit, light spice, sweet malt, bitter finish. Decent enough.
