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.

jamaty (1982) - Madrid, SPAIN - NOV 14, 2016
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.

vinivini (1431) - BELARUS - NOV 8, 2016
Tap. Amber beer, clear, minimal dense head. Malty aroma of candy, caramel. Fruity esters. Light body. Thin texture. The flavour is dryish. Caramel malts cooperate with spicy hops. The ending is empty. No hop kick. So so.

Benzai (14453) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - NOV 8, 2016
Bottle @ home shared with dad. Clear amber color, average sized off-white head. Smell and taste malts, lightly hops, malt bitter. Oh well, its drinkable. Average body and carbonation.

Trolleo (1411) - Pula / Zagreb, CROATIA - OCT 12, 2016
Clear dark amber color, nice looking creamy, medium sized off-white head. Aroma of vegetables and caramel. Taste is malt and hints of cheap whiskey. Watery, soft carbonated. This is bad. "IPA" without and hop character. //on tap at Harats pub Zagreb

badhack (543) - San Francisco, California, USA - SEP 25, 2016
Pours a gold color. Tasted of malt and barley with some bitter hop finish but really no hop flavors. Nothing remarkable and not a lot of complexity in any form hop, yeast or grain. As a bitter this is about right.

It can be a lot of things, but certainly not IPA... to me it is just some colored water.

bonev (428) - POLAND - AUG 24, 2016
Piwo w kolorze bursztynowym z biala grubopecherzykowa piana na grubosc jednego palca. W aromacie minimalne slady karmel, zilowosc i slody. W smaku dosc ziemiste, troche slodowe i troche herbaciane. Niezbyt duzo sie dzieje, wszystko bardzo ztonowane bez wyrazu. Dostepne w prawie kazdym pubie w UK. Trzeba sprobowac ale wystarczy jedno w zyciu, nie warto powtarzac.

Harats stand, Opatovina beer fest, courtesy of Domagoj V., G., and Ogivlado. Poured an old gold body, slightly darker, with a small white head. Dry aroma, herbal touch. Smooth empty dryish taste, vague herbal note, vague maltiness. This is just useless, even for the strength.
