Crafted by the Master Brewer of "Old Speckled Hen" this light golden beer delivers both flavour and refreshment. Brewed using the finest pale malts and the rare galaxy hop.

God pils. Kjøpt i butikk og drukket for å teste om det er et alternativ til annen pils. Litt tam smak, men går fint til litt sommerpilsing i sola. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Delightful little beer, if only AB-InBev could make a 4.1% beer that was this interesting. Crystal clear, golden color, decent head. Nice austere malt taste with an overlay of citrusy hops. After one taste I ran to the net to google the hops .. decidedly didn’t taste British. Galaxy, huh? Well, to my taste it seems very cleanly made ... a little hoppier than I expect in a 4.1% beer, and that is good. The malt comes through as the beer expands in the mouth. Quite a different style than I’m expecting from Greene King in a very good way.

abemorsten (3038) - Mosterøy, NORWAY - JUN 29, 2013
500 ml shared bottle from ICA Mandal. Clear sparkling golden body with a three finger thick head that diminishes quickly. Peach, honey and light malts on the nose. Fruity malts and a papery resiny bitterness. Medium bodied.

Very nice, some sweet features and nice aroma. Quite different from normal English traditional ales.

troopie (2291) - Munchen an der Willamette, Oregon, USA - JUN 24, 2013
Bottle. Yellow pour with thin white head. Aroma has some skunk, from light in clear bottle. Malty flavour with a rather greasy mouthfeel. Some hop in the finish but more grease.

Bottle to half-pint glass (shared with the Mrs.). Looks solid; a transparent orange with thin white head that dissipates into lacing fairly quickly. Smells of light caramel with some doughiness and funkiness. Tastes like it smells with a solid mouthfeel. Okay for what it is.
