Clight minty, fruity, malty, sweet taste. Red berries aftertaste. Smooth low CO2 mouthfeel, medium low a bit dry bitterness. A slight bit hazy golden color, white head with lacing. Hint of butterscotch, fruity, a tad apple scent.
Cask @ Earl of Derby, Cambridge. Clear, golden with a thin but creamy white head. Yeasty, banana aroma. Light, citrus, floral flavour ManVsBeer (10485) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUN 18, 2015
Cask @ Waterhouse, Manchester. Had a soapy sourness to it (possibly didn’t travel well), however still recognisably a Greene King brew. allmyvinyl (10634) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 14, 2015
Cask at the Mercat. Pours clear golden, thin white head. Aromas are floral hops, light lemon. Taste is biscuit, sweet, light lemon again. It’s ok. Bit sweet on the finish. AshtonMcCobb (6615) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 9, 2015
On cask at the Mercat.
Appearance - golden hazy with a nice head.
Nose -floral and citrus notes.
Taste - lemon with toffee biscuit backbone.
Palate - light to medium bodied with a creamy texture and a long dry finish.
Overall - probably the best I’ve had from Greene King. Not sure why the score is so low.

Cask at Earl of Derby, Cambridge. Mid gold, clear. Wisps of head but mostly flat. Aroma of sulphur and orange blossom. Chemical bittersweet taste with a bitter-sour finish. Unfortunate lingering aftertaste. One of GK’s less palatable efforts. AndySnow (7683) - Huddinge, SWEDEN - OCT 2, 2014

Golden colour with, in this case, a tight foamy head. Not much aroma to speak of and falls just the wrong side of the line that defines ’subtlety’ or ’blandness’. Fairly inoffensive but it still has that sogginess which typifies all Greene King beers. I’ve certainly had worse but it’s really nothing to write home about. dEnk (4200) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - MAY 11, 2014
Handpump. Aroma is grassy and earthy hops, some yeast. Flavour is yeasty malt with faint soapy grassy hops notes.
