Finally a Greene King beer that I can honestly say tastes different to the rest.
The signature green and boring hop notes are there, but the malting is nice and thick.
Full of creamy toffee and black pepper, it coats your palate and offers little bursts of sugary all spice. All I ask is that Greene King try hopping differently.
Do something you’ve not done before like using a shed load of something decent in the dry hop. Anything.
Something to make me think, “Ah yes, they really enjoy making their beer.”
And ditch the clear glass while you’re at it.
