Greene King Mild

The recent changes at The Portland Arms reported elsewhere have meant the loss (hopefully temporarily) of another outlet for Greene King's delicious XX Mild. The number of pubs selling this under-rated brew locally is now down to a handful - in Cambridge, The Free Press, The Green Dragon and The Jenny Wren; in Ely The Prince Albert and in Willingham The Three Tuns.

Production of the beer was moved last year to Ridleys Brewery because volumes had become too small for it to be worthwhile GK brewing it themselves. Fortunately there was no loss of quality as a result - if anything, it's even better - a rich, succulent, fruity ale much more full-bodied than its strength would suggest. Try it whilst you can.
