Thanks to Blankboy. Appearance: golden orange, small snow white head. Aroma: some initial sweetness that makes way for hops and a nice maltiness. Flavour: Perfume hops, quite bitter, good malt backbone with a nice long black tea finish.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle from Maruhn, Darmstadt
Hazy amber-copper color; small-sized creamy head. The malt and hop arma, very light, is covered by a stronger smell of vegetables and cabbage, not rare in English bottles; also, refined white sugar; somehow perfumy. Still, the aroma is better than the flavor, where there is just some dry and dusty caramel (how can they rate the sweetness 4.5/5.0 on the label???), and more vegetables. Low bitterness. Confused.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Really nice orange-colured British IPA with discreet but endearing scents of citrus, pine and hops. Very well balanced maltbase - and a super-refreshing taste. More forthcoming than many of its American cousins.

Bottled (BZ, BB 01/2011)
Clear amber color, decent creamy off-white head. Yeasty, pine, pineapple, bread, citrus in the nose. Medium-bodied. Flavor is similar: a bit yeastyness, citrus, bread, spruce, fruity hoppyness. Very British bitter and the best Butcombe beer so far I’ve rated.

Bottle picked up at Bellingers, Jet Garage, Grove, Nr Wantage, Oxon, consumed 28-07-10 Pours dark gold, amber with white head. Lacks in aroma but there is some malt. I didn’t mind this but not really in the vein of an IPA at all, quite earthy, malty, some hops and fruit. A6 A3 T7 P3 Ov13 3.2
