2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 8/20
Smells very bready and malty almost like peanut brittle. Nice sunset orange with little to no head on the pour. Medium body and lacking in the carbonation.. it is not flat just not crisp. Flavor was more malty than hops. I would almost consider this ESB than an IPA but I am no expert. The malt over powers any hop influence and there is not citrus of pine

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask-conditioned at the Robin Hoods Retreat Bristol, 30/10/07. Clear amber coloured with a decent white head that left rings down the glass. Subdued aroma of biscuit malt with some earthy hops. The flavour began with some sweet malt before a spicy hop finish, that left a pronounced aftertaste. Not bad, but the alcohol was more prominent than the hops.
