2.2
fairwater (146) - Reading, Berkshire, ENGLAND - MAY 23, 2013
Cask @ Warwick Arms. Mid gold, there’s a definite Greene-kingyness about it, either lemongrass or dishwashing detergent, haven’t quite decided. Drinkable. Just.

2.6
berkshirejohn (6655) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - MAY 17, 2013
Cask at the Old Manor (JDW), Bracknell. Pale chestnut with a tight cream head; citrus aroma; creamy in the mouth with some light citrus and stale malts; and a dry biscuity finish with not a hop in sight. Under whelming.

Jonb5 (568) - Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 16, 2013
Pint, from the cask. A: Bronze, copper, clear, small taned head, some retention. S: Floral, had to think of Saaz hops. T: Phenol, berries on the turn, finish slightly bitter and wheaty. Like some other Greene King beers it reminded me of a Belgian Pale Ale. M: Smooth, light body. O: Lots of depth for a bitter, very decent.

3.5
mr_h (5949) - Ayr, SCOTLAND - MAY 11, 2013
Cask by handpump at The Doublet, Glasgow - clear golden, creamy off-white head, weak resinous malty aroma, good lacing, sweet, honey, hint of resin, creamy texture, refreshing, served just a bit cold

3.1
dogbomb (1254) - ENGLAND - MAY 9, 2013
Cask. Westgate Ale Fresco. Golden pour with a thick white creamy top. Fresh hoppy nose with light lemons and some wheatiness. Taste is instantly sweet and wheaty - nice and fresh. There's a light lemon and grass hop. Finish is sharp and bitter. Very decent drinking ale.

2.8
Theydon_Bois (20636) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - MAY 5, 2013
Gravity dispense at the Quins Head, Twickenham Stoop, 04/05/13 during half time of Quins v Northampton. 22-19 Quins FT. Clear golden amber with a thin white head. Nose carries the unmistakable waft of good ole GK yeast, darker malts, toffee, orchard fruits. Taste comprises toffee apple, malt, GK yeast, light hops in the background, straw, hints of citrus. Medium bodied, moderate carbonation, light bitterness in the finish. Drinkable but boring as one comes to expect with GK seasonals!

2.4
kwik-lime (2044) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 1, 2013
Somewhat sickly ale, hints of butterscotch and banana, very little hop here - not a great beer at all.

2.7
pivnizub (10811) - Bochum, Por�ř�, GERMANY - AUG 22, 2012
Cask (@Charlie’s Bar): Deep golden, a bit hazy, stable off-white head, herbal hoppy nose, fruity malt detectable; mild to moderate bitter-sweet flavour, light bodied; short herbal-bitter finish, fruits detectable. O.K., nothing more…

2.9
stouby (4781) - Holbæk, DENMARK - JUL 6, 2012
Cask at Charlie’s Bar. Clear orange with a white head, nice lacings. Aroma medium hoppy (citrusy) and malty (caramel). Flavor medium sweet and bitter. Medium body.

2.8
Ungstrup (38421) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUN 19, 2012
Cask at Charlie’s Bar, Copenhagen. An amber beer with a beige head. The aroma has notes of lemons and butterscotch. The flavor is sweet with notes of caramel, butterscotch, and citrusy hops, leading to a dry finish.
Earlier Rating: 10/17/2005 Total Score: 3.2
[Cask at Charlies Bar, Copenhagen] An orange beer with a small light orange head. The aroma is sweet and very fruity, with oranges coming thru, but also well hopped. The flavor is sweet and very fruity - again with oranges coming thru with most power, but also with a lovely dry bitter end and with a smooth body.
