(Keg at William K Annankatu, 20140829) The beer poured golden and clear. Its head was small and white. Aroma had sweetness, earth and malts. Palat was medium bodied and fizzy. Flavours were malts, earth, sweetness, grass and bitterness. Aftertaste was hoppy and bitter. Nothing American here but strong English hops according to my brain. Too fizzy.

Bottle 330ml (K-Kamppi)
Clear orange color, small white head. Aroma has diacetyl? yeast? ... fruityness. Light-bodied. More character than many other Greene Kings ... in its unclean touch. Fruity yeasty flavor with light touch of hoppy bitterness.

Clear golden/orange with a medium sized diminishing off white head. Grass, bread, herbal, dry flowers, light caramel, butter. Light/medium body, watery/oily texture, medium carbonation, light/medium sweet and bitter. Not sure where the inspiration from by bold American IPAs has gone, but definitely not into this bottle.

allmyvinyl (3181) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - AUG 4, 2014
I’m going to put the leg rating under here, as it seems more reasonable than a cask rate. Pours clear golden amber, thin white head. Aromas are buttery, light citrus. Taste is more butter, light sweetness. Too fizzy. Not very good.
