2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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 it’s from Greene King.

UPDATED: NOV 30, 2014 Sampled on draught at the Red Lion and Sun in Highgate. This is a fairly standard low-ish strength bitter. Copper colour, low carbonation and not much hop taste. Some toffee-ish malts but no complexity of flavours. Slight sulphur taste. Not very memorable.

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.
