gegwilson (3033) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAR 20, 2016
Cask in the Brewery Tap, Abingdon. Amber with a frothy off white head. No aroma. Peppery malt flavour. Thin and bland. Yet another dreadful beer from the Greene King stable.

The_Osprey (5781) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 13, 2015
Cask at The George Inn as íThe George Inn Aleí. Clear orange, still, small foamy white head. Aroma is bread, varnish, apple peel. Body is medium to light, smooth, low carbonation. Taste is light, gluey, biscuity with a soft bitterness. Very plain old-school bitter. Drinkable but not very interesting.

George inn ale pours an amber gold with a malty bready caramel. Typical English ale with a bready figs and fruity flavor. Decent enough but kind of boring.†

LetsGoState (788) - Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 2, 2015
Appearance is amber. Aroma isnít particularly interesting. Taste has a decent balance of malts and bitter hops, but Iím not a big cask fan. Overall not the greatest, but not terrible.

jjsint (2180) - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - JUN 5, 2015
Cask at the Griffin Hotel, Attleborough. Light copper, flat, slightly hazy. The aroma is as uninspiring as the colour... caramel malt, bread, TCP, sulphur. Taste is an improvement - just - with sweet malt and bitter/sour citrus notes. Thin chalky palate. This is pretty sub-par.

BlackHaddock (6085) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - APR 16, 2015
Two cask pints in different pubs on the Isle of Man, 10th and 11th April 2015. Basic session bitter with a typical UK blended feel to it. Amber/brown and a decent head on both my hand-pulled pints. Malts lead the way in both the aroma and taste with the hops preventing any real sweetness taking over the brew, semi-bitter finish and pleasant enough even if itís from Greene King.

niquillis (2344) - Stoke on Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 15, 2015
On cask at Mildenhall Town FC, Mildenhall. Pours nut brown with a light tan head. Quite a nutty and malty bitter. Itís OK.

Poured medium amber with an off white head. Aroma of bitter hops, light fruitiness. Light body, flavour of a pretty bog standard bitter.
