The cask ale in a London pub is the best. Highly recommend on your next trip to England......................................... shoulderbroken (4256) - Tokyo, JAPAN - NOV 27, 2011
Cask at Allsop Arms. Amber coloured with small white head. Aroma is yeasty and malty. Slightly floral. Quite smooth in the mouth and with a very slight bitterness. Tastes quite like a De Konninck, but not as special. Slight herbal element. thepegjett (1281) - Cambridge (via Winnipeg), Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - NOV 16, 2011

P - mid and creamy
O - where’s the flavour? prawlie (1702) - Berkshire, ENGLAND - OCT 22, 2011
Pint at the Queen’s Head in Wokingham. I’ve has this before as Royal London and didn’t think much of it then either (I’d have given it a miss if I’d known it was an alias). This is amber, with slow rising bubbles and a creamy head. Smells of hops, the aroma’s ok. Bitter, a little fruity. Just about drinkable. 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 ain’t 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 (7086) - Toronto (Harbourfront), 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. rickgordon (3878) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - AUG 12, 2011

Amber colour, small off-white head. Aroma is fruits, wood and saltwater. Flavour is much the same, but has some quite vegetably notes to it as well. Quite grassy finish.
Cask at GBBF 2010. An amber beer with a yellowish head. The aroma has notes of malt, caramel, elderflowers, and hops. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt, citrusy hops, and caramel. The malt seem chewy.
