Theydon_Bois (15004) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - DEC 31, 2015
Bottle at home, 31/12/15 as M and S Southwold Summer IPA. Clear golden orange with a well appointed off white covering. Nose is orange, grain, toasted bread, light metallic notes, citric pith. Taste comprises orange squash, bread dough, toasted malt, light caramel. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, drying close with light hop bitterness. Ok drinkable affair if somewhat pedestrian for style and under hopped for my liking.

kermis (8508) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - SEP 1, 2015
Bottle shared, as Marks and Spencer Southwold Summer IPA. Pours clear amber with a small off white head. Aroma of toffee, caramel, yeast, dark fruit, a light herbal note and a touch of orange. Flavour is moderate sweet and bitter with a slightly resinous hop juice coating palate in contrast to the not so hoppy nose. Medium bodied with soft carbonation.

Swaroga (1864) - Brussels, BELGIUM - AUG 19, 2015
Amber color with small but consistent and lasting white head. The beer has a sweetish aroma of malts with mango, orange, white grapes, zest and a bit of raisin. The malt profile is on a dark bread skin and spice cake. Flavor is strong malts, medium sweet and the finish is bitter. Bitterness is zest and metal and isn’t elegant because it lasts long on the metal side. But somehow it gets erased each sip thanks to a powerful malt flavor.

blackradioboy (137) - SCOTLAND - JUL 10, 2015
Bottle from M&S. This beer ticks all the boxes - beautifully balanced, everything seems to fall into place here. Slightly sweet, then bitter with a long, lingering finish. The depth of flavour here is special. To date, one of my favourite bottled beers. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

allmyvinyl (7779) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUN 20, 2015
500ml bottle as M&S Southwold Summer IPA. Pours clear amber, short-lived white head. Aromas of limes, chalk, fresh orange, bubblegum. Taste is more citrus, with white sugar sweet notes rather than caramel. Develops into a lime marmalade kinda thing, with more hubba bubba. Bitter finish. Yeah, pretty good.

As M&S Southwold Summer IPA. Adnams are a first-rate brewer, but alas they’ ve gone for a heavier American-style IPA (which isn’t a true IPA at all). Can’t taste the supposed citrus edge to this...disappointed.
