2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
16th August 2012: hand-pulled pint in my local Wetherspoons into a UK sleeve.
Yet another golden brew with a citrusy nose: I’m getting fed up with them now.
No better or worse than the rest: middle of the road IPA where the blend of hops from around the world cancelled each other out a bit. The alcohol was just about detectable and helped to at least give the brew some ‘umph’, otherwise it was as forgettable as all the rest in this increasingly annoying style.
