Royal London is rich, fruity and full of flavour, combining crystal malt with Challenger and Golding hops. Greene King brewers have especially created this new cask beer called Royal London, to celebrate the country’s capital. It is available to savour in some of London’s most traditional and historic watering holes. Royal London is only available in selected Greene King pubs in London.

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.

Cask at Waterfront, Diss. Pours amber. Autumn fruit, light spice, sweet malt, bitter finish. Decent enough.

Hippoman (399) - Durham, ENGLAND - OCT 24, 2015
Cask as "London Glory" at The Market Tavern, Durham, £3.60/pint. Ruby amber pour with a smooth, off-white head that laces well. The nose is pleasant with cereal grains and biscuit, leading into a largely sweet tasting beer, malt-led with toffee notes and light cereal on a smooth palate. Aside from the fact its branding is a complete London Pride knock-off, I found this to be a decent beer.

Mild hoppy aroma. Very thin patchy head. Dark brown colour. Strong hoppy flavour with a bitter taste on the tongue and the throat. Work horse beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

KeefOz (1220) - Tarragindi, AUSTRALIA - MAY 2, 2013
Tasted 21/4/2013 draught "The Brewmaster", Leicester Square, London. Poured a clear dark amber colour with a one-finger beige coloured bubbly head. Aroma with a hint of sweet malt. Tasted of malt sweetness followed by a biting hops bitterness. Light body. Finish is long and of biting bitterness. OK but not my style.

Nice straight middle of the road pint. Smooth and Malty but not much character outside of that. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pyobon (1180) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - SEP 22, 2012
(on tap) Clear mahogany, white head. Very littel aroma. Light body, light carbonation. Candy and caramel foretaste, falls flat and watery. Overall OK, but rather disappointingly flat in finish.
