KeefOz (763) - 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 (861) - 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.

Theydon_Bois (7004) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - SEP 16, 2012
Gravity dispense at the ’Quinns Head’ pub inside Twickenham Stoop Rugby ground during half time of the Harlequins vs Salegame - 15/09/12. Badged as ’London Glory’. Clear mid amber with a thinnish off-white head that retained well. Typical Green King nose, yeast, light toffee. Taste follows, grain, toffee. Medium bodied with that dry GK finish. Dull.

jmgreenuk (3580) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - SEP 1, 2012
Cask at the Goat and Tricycle, Bournemouth. A lovely golden brown pour, with a nice white lacy frothy head. No real aroma and nothing special taste wise either. It's a classic English bitter with a nice malty flavour and a bitter palate. A very decent session ale, but nothing that makes is stand out from the crowd. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
