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 didnít 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 Iím expecting from Greene King in a very good way.

abemorsten (2680) - MosterÝy, 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.

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.

b3shine (5301) - Indiana, USA - JUN 22, 2013
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.

wheresthepath (1532) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - JUN 17, 2013
[500ml bottle from Asda, High Wycombe] Pours deep golden with a slight white head and a light fizz. Some lemon up front then lots of leafy hops. Quite sweet. Impressed by GK making a beer where the hops actually show through; the unfortunate thing is that this particular hop flavour is one that Iím not particularly fond of. Nevertheless, itís not a bad beer. Clean finish too,

bottle. Deep gold with small head. Thereís a surprisingly big hop finish to this light bodied ale. Pleasant, and goes down easy.

Pizd (432) - Merseyside, ENGLAND - JUN 14, 2013
(Bottle): Pours a clear golden colour with small white head. Aroma of grassy, earthy hops, some sweet maltiness and a bit of skunk. Taste is initially of subdued malt and fruits which quickly gives way to some moderate hits of floral hops, citrus and grassy/earthy notes. I like the bitterness, itís just enough to give a kick but not too much to spoil the experience. Nothing special in this beer but itís drinkable.
