Mainbrace India Pale Ale.
This exquisitely smooth ale boats a light, malty flavour and is brewed with locally grown hops and chalk filtered mineral water drawn from the well of Britainís oldest brewer.

This is a bitter, although not a bad one it suffers from tasting the same as lots of other shepherd neame beers. An Amber ale with a caramel aroma, fruity flavour with dry hoppy finish. It is a good example of a kentish ale, but the ipa moniker is misleading and annoying.

Swaroga (1826) - Brussels, BELGIUM - AUG 10, 2015
Amber color with a medium head. The beer has a delicate aroma overall. It has a typical for a bitter bread skin and caramel notes to it. Also some herbs, zest and cat piss. Flavor is the same but with lots of water. It has a dry dough and bread malt flavor and herbal bitterness in the aftertaste. The finish is medium long. Not a bad pint of dull bitter.

I really like this one. It tastes much better than most beers Iíve tried, and with it being an ASDA beer you can usually get four bottles for £5. Bargain.

SangreSani (294) - Głowienka, POLAND - MAR 22, 2015
Short head. Golden to amber colored beer. Good amount of hops in aroma, some malts and hints of honey. Hints of esters. Some melanoidins, I think. Delicate scent/flavor of hooch or whiskey. Light to medium bitterness. Lightly carbonated, slick texture. Medium body. British must have different thoughts on IPA style than Americans.

Erzengel (6242) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - OCT 16, 2014
A bit watery, boring. Fresh-smooth beginning, not too deep. Easy to drink, slightly hoppy, a bit of malt but not more. The aftertaste is medium, watery sweetish with nice floral bitter hints.

Bottle. A boring bitter than can be found in many different guies in all supermarkets.

Imaena (2126) - Maputo, MOZAMBIQUE - AUG 7, 2014
Bottle from ASDA. This is a boring bitter without much hop character. Just poorly put together.

MichaelAwesome (6008) - Wanne-Eickel, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - AUG 6, 2014
Bottle from ASDA, Eastbourne shared with McTapps. Drinkable one with dry aftertaste, some malt in the aroma and bit of hops. Watery moments combined with some barley and rye in the back. Classic one without being rocket science.
