Suffolk Craft Beer Review: Gangly Ghoul from Greene King

Welcome to the Shed. I am even-star and this is The Beer in Review. Today's Suffolk craft beer review is for Gangly Ghoul from Greene King.
Share It!

Gangly Ghoul was a dark red bitter. Sweet and fruity with some malt. Strawberry, cherry, rhubarb. Light flavours and not something that is usually my bag but very pleasant! Cream Soda!

Ok so I have this ambivalent view of cask Greene King beers but probably not for the reason you are thinking. I have tried Greene King beers at Greene King pubs and Greene King pubs in my area don't sell a lot of real ale. They sell a lot of lager. And strange coloured stuff in bottles. Which means the real beer is not ever in the best shape. In fact, it is often down right rancid. But this is the first Greene King that has been on at our London station local and it was decent.

The Beer in Review is a blog about British craft beer and real ale. Keep up with new posts and contact me with comments and questions on twitter or YouTube. I'd love to hear about your craft beer adventures and recommendations from your home town.
