2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
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.

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.

1.2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
Tasted 22/4/2013 draught "Garrick Arms", Leicester square, London. Poured a clear golden amber colour with a few bubbles for a head. Laced poorly. Aroma-less. Tasted semi-sweet fading to a very very slight bitterness - not much of a taste of anything or any bitterness. Light body (watery). Smooth, soft, light flavoured - a bit like drinking water.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Solid brown pour with decent white head that sticks around for creaminess. Simple malt/hop combo. Mildly nutty. Quite smooth. Nothing grand.
