Labelled, “Brewed longer for superior quality”, there’s very little difference to any other Greene King beer that I can make out.
Yes, the malting is slightly bigger, a little more caramel than, say their IPA, and the hopping feels a little sprightlier, but it’s that same flavour.
A bit green and a bit grassy.
The ABV is quite high for this brewery but it’s in your face, harsh and burning.
A good high ABV beer should be warming and the alcohol used to help carry and accentuate the flavours.
This is just alcohol burn.
By no means is this undrinkable but it’s undeniably unremarkable.
