AJL1980 (100) - West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - OCT 31, 2016
Pint off keg from skinners arms in London. Has the aroma of dishwater. Pours flat looks like a lager. Tasteless fare. Not surprised to see this is a greene king offering, tastes like their vile IPA but not as bad.

On tap. Color : hazy golden ale with thing white head. Nose : nothing really striking. Aromas : mainly malt. Texture is dry, low bitterness, high carbonation. The aftertaste bitterness is quite unpleasant.

allmyvinyl (9949) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 18, 2016
Cask at Carters Tap. Pours clear golden with a thin white head. Aromas of butterscotch, oat biscuits. Taste is pretty grim, astringent, sweet, buttery. Thin finish. Hard to like.

Vladivostok (466) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - JAN 23, 2016
Pale and quite pleasantly hoppy without actually having much aroma. Generally quite drinkable but rather fails in what it is intended to do. Very much an accountants homage to an American pale ale.

MissPxx (959) - Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 9, 2015
Mildly hoppy aroma. Quite fruity but lovely. Dark honey appearance. Quite sweet and hoppy, fruity and quite Morrish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Nothing special. Very light, drinkable. It is not bitter, if not that little aftertaste, I would say that it is boring drink.

Beese (2570) - Watford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 30, 2014
Cask at The Three Frogs (GK), Wokingham on 9 March 2013. Poured a clear dark golden colour, with a rocky white head. Aroma was typical GK; sweet malts, GK yeast and some faint hops. Flavours of caramel, flat malts and some grassy hop. Finish was much the same. Not awful, but a sad approximation of much better beers.
