Suffolk Real Ale Beer Review: Scrum Down from Greene King

Welcome to the Shed. I am even-star and this is The Beer in Review. Today's Suffolk real ale beer review is for Scrum Down from Greene King.

Share It!

Yes indeed. The brewery we all love to hate on: Greene King. I can't say I have very strong feelings one way or the other. They make some decent beer. Not crazy about their pubs (if they could even be called that). Business is business and I can get over it.  At the end of the day, if a pub isn't serving beer I like I will go somewhere else.

 Not really sure what is going on with the pump clip. You would think GK would at least supply their pubs that are serving their beer with some decent point of sale collateral.

Scrum Down was a light amber bitter. Hoppy like an American lager, like a similar taste to a Sam Adams for example, and caramel, light butterscotch, and lightly floral. There was something a bit numbing on the palate and almost a fragrant seaside whiff.

The Beer in Review is a blog about beer. Mostly British beer because that is where I live. I post a review every week day. Make sure you check in on Friday which is when I reveal BEER. OF THE. WEEK! You can contact me with comments and questions on twitter or facebook.
