3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Amber body and stable head. Grapefruit hops, biscuit malts, tomato compote strangely. Well developed, nicely brewed. Quite classic in malts, but that’s no problem. Bit too light perhaps. (33cl bottle from Saveur Bière)

Bottle. Pours golden amber with a white head. Lemon, light malt aroma. Light to medium body, medium carbonation. Light pine, lemon, grass, sponge cake... OK.

4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
500ml Bottle. Poured in a my favorite Grimbergen glass.
Very decent IPA. This is the second beer that I get from Belhaven and, like the first one, it’s not disappointing at all.
a: Clear yellow gold color. Thin white head.
s: Fresh hops. Nevertheless, more discrete than a regular American IPA.
t: Dry and bitter (as is should be :)). Fresh malt and moderate alcohol.
m: Hop taste in the end. Leaves a reasonable bitterness in the tong.
d: For the ones that like bitters and IPAs like me, this would be a pleasure.

Poured with no head. A pleasant beer. Not as much aroma as I expected but a well balanced British IPA.

On tap at the Champion of the Thames, Cambridge. Dark gold, a bit of head and lacing. Lots of carbonation. Unfortunate vinegar sour smell. Forest floor and malt also in the aroma but no suggestion of hops. The taste is far better: savoury/woody and sweet with a long bittersweet finish. Champagne-tickly mouthfeel. It is what it is: a GK attempt at craft. Ok, but I’ve had better.

Tap@böackdoor. Copper clear. Light citrussy nose, fruity slight perfumy, caramels. Whoa, really tee- ish (camomille/lemon green) flavour, caramels. Light crackery malts. I used to drink tons of this stuff before, but can’t remember it being this... perfumy. Light ginger there too.,

330cl bottle from Systembolaget. A somewhat boring aroma with a surprisingly rich taste. Very fizzy for an IPA with a nice bitter finish.
