Weak but pleasant ale to quaff easily in a session without getting you the least bit excited. Mildly floral and citrusey, not much bitterness, feels like a summer beer yet strangely served in December.

2.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Cask at the Wheelhouse, Nottingham. Amber with a thick white head. A little malt in the aroma and the taste. Some traces of bitterness. Nottingham people say it doesn’t taste the same as when it was brewed in the Kimberley Brewery with Trent water. This Greene King version is bland and boring.
