maeib (8749) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - SEP 16, 2011
Cask Conditioned Handpump Wig & Pen Northampton. An amber brown coloured beer with a white head and lots of lace. Greene King yeast throughout this. There is also some sweetness in a creamy texture. A little hoppiness too. This aint bad and quite flavoursome, and although safe stands out from most GK beers.

Floral with caramel malts. Actually OK for Greene King, but obviously nothing special. Served as London Glory (Greenwich).

HogTownHarry (6564) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - AUG 23, 2011
August 15, 2011 - cask at The Sherlock Holmes (Trafalgar Square). As London Glory. Oh boy, Greene King - yay. Decent looking clear bright amber pour with an average but quick-diminishing frothy/creamy off-white head. Overly sweet caramel malt, decent but characterless floral bitterness (6+). The taste ... sort of fails - sugary, wet paper, sort of wet straw; cheap sweet, watery caramel. Average body, decent carbonation - starts balanced enough, but leaves a somewhat harsh aftertaste- meh; a tick.
