COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask: Regular.
St Edmunds is a new golden beer and the first of its kind in the UK. A revolutionary take on a traditional dispense, the unique beer engine allows drinkers to choose how their cask pint of St Edmunds is served. Reflecting regional tastes, drinkers can opt for a ‘northern head’ – tight and creamy or a ‘southern head’ – a crowning glory of loose bubbles.
Recently voted Beer of the Month by renowned beer writer Roger Protz, St Edmunds is crisp and fresh with zesty, citrus notes. Offering drinkers a choice of styles, St Edmunds still provides the great flavour of a quality cask beer. Specially brewed to be served between 6-8 degrees - cooler than traditional cask beers – it delivers the refreshment of colder drinks while retaining all the depth of character, taste and aroma of real ale.

Vladivostok (250) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - AUG 8, 2014
Golden colour with, in this case, a tight foamy head. Not much aroma to speak of and falls just the wrong side of the line that defines ’subtlety’ or ’blandness’. Fairly inoffensive but it still has that sogginess which typifies all Greene King beers. I’ve certainly had worse but it’s really nothing to write home about.

DandyLion (518) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - APR 19, 2014
Cask @ The Black Horse, Braunstone Gate, Leicester. I don't know if it was particularly well kept (probably) but this beer was very nice- bright coloured with a citrus aroma. Nice balance of malts and hops. Liked it surprisingly. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
