2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap at the newly refurbished Melville Bar.
Appearance - honey with a decent head.
Nose - malt and honey
Taste - more of the same.
Palate - light to medium bodied with a creamy texture and a reasonably clean finish.
Overall - not unpleasant but neither does it do anything.

2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Dark gold. Aroma of hops and fruit. Taste is sour/bitter. A bland disappointment and a shadow of its former self. Currently a weak link in the Greene King portfolio.

I enjoyed 3 of these at Memphis Taproom (my favorite bar) during Philly Beer Week. As far as Iím concerned you simply cannot beat the English when it comes to Bitter or Pale ale in cask! Although this may not be the best of the best, it still blows away most American Cask Pale Ales. I know itís not high ABV or a Hop-bomb that will make ones face implode, and barely carbonated, but thatís the point: Itís an English Style REAL Cask Ale. It was enjoyable on itís own, but Iíd rank it even higher if I could assign Style Points

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
On cask at bridge bar Heathrow T1, badged as "bridge ale".
This seems like most likely candidate copper-brown with low head and strong caramel/butterscotch aroma. Low condition, bit tired, medium body, malt and caramel, little bitterness. Competent but dull dull dull.
