Greene King IPA Gold is a light, refreshing golden ale that truly brings out the best in the unique and aromatic Savinsjki Goldings hop variety. The craftsmanship in this beer lies in the late hopping which creates a perfect blend of tropical fruits, mango and spicy notes and delivers a beer with a clean bitter taste and a crisp dry finish.

Who ever came up with the packaging should be ashamed. I cannot not piss when looking this bottle. That said the smell is refreshing hoppy, and gives sweetness. Taste is very typical English ale. Aromas has usual hay and floral contents, and nothing is strong. What comes to world of beers this is ok, but as category beer of ales I’d say one has to be mad to say this is nothing more than boring, boring and badly packaged.

Bottle from Tesco. As soon as this was opened I knew it was going to be ropey. Aroma was musty and old. Taste was pretty dire; earthiness and not much else. Thin and unexciting Drain pour about 3 mouthfuls in.

2016 catch up - Bottle at home - A very pleasant beer. Hops and an underlying floral flavour. It could have probably coped with a bit more chilling, but it was still very nice and a pleasant surprise.

Nice Gold colour thinish head. Sweet fruity aroma. Taste is nice sweet malt with citrus fruitiness and dryness but not too strong/overpowering so a nice easy drinker.

Pours a pale blonde colour. Aroma is of fag ash.Some Kentish hops and more fag ash on the taste. Ok to drink but a bit would be nicer if it didn’t taste of discarded Benson and Hedges

Sigmund (8025) - Tau, NORWAY - NOV 1, 2016
Clear 500 ml bottle, from a corner shop in London. ABV is 4.1%. Golden colour, large white head. Heineken-like aroma of lightstruck hops, not unpleasant though, also hints of toffee. Fairly fresh and refreshing flavour, not very exciting, but not bad.
