Holmen1 (2715) - Stavanger, NORWAY - APR 17, 2014
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.

Clear light amber colour with a lasting thin white halo. Aroma is sweet caramel, slight staling. Flavour is brown bread, caramel, light metallic. So so.

JorgeLee (1250) - Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 29, 2013
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.

Leighton (11649) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 5, 2013
Cask at the Cleveland Arms, London. Pours clear, red-gold with a lastig, creamy head. Sugary bread and berries in the nose. Light sweet flavor, bready malts, light toast, berry fruits, mellow leafy bitterness. Light bodied with fine carcination. Great condition. Moderately sweet finish, mild dry earth, berries and leaves. Good balance overall. Solid bitter.
