2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Fra fat på The George Inn, under navnet The George Inn Ale, april-14sammen med Håkon: tett skum fra håndpumpen, dog en kortvarig glede. En enkel ale på alle måter. Veldig synd at denne fantastiske puben under beskyttelse av The National Trust bare har øl fra Greene King, de er ofte så kjedelige. Eminently forgettable.

On cask at the George Inn and served under the name The George Inn Ale. Mild smell and taste with some caramel, malts and fruits. Mostly ripe fruit and green apple. Way too mild, doesn’t stand out.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Cask in the Assembly House NW5 on Wingy’s stag. Middle copper coloured bitter, thin white head. I’m guessing Greene King may have changed this slightly as it appeared to be a dishwatery bitter with a vaguely sweetish malty feel and not much hop going on. Disappointing.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Cask at the Wheathseaf, Frimley Green - 05/01/13. Note - also had this as Sherlock and also as Raglan Best (Rugby) spoilt so I am !
Clear dark amber/brown with a thin off white head - looks inviting!
Nose carries malt, yeast (that GK strain of course!), hint of fruit.
Taste comprises light fruits, malts, GK yeast, touch of paper.
Medium bodied with moderate carbonation and some bitterness in the finish.
Dull but not undrinkable!
