Just a quick pint or two!
BeerABVScoreNotes
Greene King - IPA Gold4.10GoodA musty aroma with an overwhelming taste of mushrooms and a fairly bitter finish! I didn't think it was too bad but I can understand others disapproving.
Monty's - MPA4.00GoodI know there are lots of nice citrus and malty flavours in this beer. In this pint the flavours were a bit muted, in my opinion the beer was served too cold.
