Not bad for one of the most generic real ales going. The sort of one you see going in a franchise pub or a huge mock Tudor pub off a slip road as a "hey look, we sell real ale now TAKE IT" option while children scrike and run around the place and the polite but thick waitress tells you the chefs gone off even though its not yet 2pm. All I can currently think of it is a template of an IPA, which isnt a bad thing. No, the reason Greene King IPA is a bad thing is that they close down smaller breweries. Also, I kept this in a can once for over a year before resorting to it, and the result was a completely ridiculously festy expired brew, which I used to scare my mates with before pouring down the sink.

Rijetko se desi da prospem pivo. Ne sjećam se - moda 2 puta u ivotu da je pivo zavrilo u sudoperu... E ovo sam prosuo. Ne moe se piti. Nije do pivara, do vremena je. Prosto pivo je previe vremena provelo u prozirnoj flai. Sunce i vrijeme su pretvorile hmelj u stare vojničke čarape, ručno prane u kasarni sa onim sapunom za ve. Ko je sluio vojsku 90tih sjetiće se. Nepitko. teta. Pivo izgleda jako lijepo. Divna boja. Imaju i novu etiketu. Na ovoj slici je stara etiketa.

A very nice session real ale with a good balance of hops and malt. I enjoyed it and would happily drink it again. Nothing spectacular and it could be said to be slightly watery, but drinkable. You dont always want to drink 8% IPAs and stouts!!!!

Bottle. Amber in colour. Small off-white head. Malty; caramel, toasty malts, grainy. Fruity; apple. Hoppy, some hop bitterness. Sweet-bitter malty and slightly fruity. Quite dry. Bit metallic in the finish. Drinkable but uninteresting. (2016-03-09)

DrNosha (2029) - Wrttemberg, Germany, GERMANY - JAN 4, 2017
500ml Dose. Helle Bernsteinfarbe. Der sehr grobe und flache Schaum zerfllt sofort. Es riecht nach Malz, Holz und einen Hauch Sherry. Auch im Antrunk erinnert es fern an einen trockenen Sherry. Dazu Karamell. Ziemlich flach und mit einem India Pale Ale hat das nichts zu tun!

Color t, ambar, limpia y de espuma blanca. Aroma cereal, otas de fruto seco. En boca, aguada y con gas abundante. Muy ligera. Sabor malteado, extrao, tostado y con cierto tono artificial, como plstico, poco agradable. Debe ser de lo ms barato en UK. Se explica.
