3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from the Co-op, deep red-brown with a thin head, and a spicy, lightly toasty nose. Body is earthy and toffeeish, with hints of toasted sugared citrus and a light crisp and spicy bitterness. Very much an English style IPA but with American hints.

Bottle from Waitrose. Pours mid amber with thin head which rapidly dissipates. Aroma includes caramel and slight honey edge. Taste is well balanced with light cereal but nothing particularly interesting.

500ml bottle. Clear amber colour with a good frothy white head. Hoppy aroma, citrus, malts. Flavour is quite hoppy and bittersweet, pleasant mouthfeel. Fairly nice IPA I thought.

A nose like Pinocchio’s, had Pinocchio’s nose been cut off. It should have been long and full, but is short and weak. The lie with Butcombe Brunel Atlantic IPA is that it isn’t an American IPA, more of a lager beer. Drinkable though, it passes that test.

500ml dark bottle from Asda. Clean and crisp. Pleasant enough and inoffensive, but no character and lacking in all respects. More of a lager than an ale. It’s all in balance and professionally made, but there’s nothing much here for me. Can’t believe this is 5% abv.

Bottle from Tesco, as Brunel Atlantic IPA at 5% so rated here. Amber colour with a thin off white head. Over fruit aroma. Taste mainly sweet, with a very light bitter finish.

*Old rating from 2010. Sweetish-malty, slightly floral, but a bit too sweetish. But nice and round.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle at home split with Sarah, picked up from Waitrose online. Light amber / golden coloured pour with a lasting thin off white head. Aroma is nutty malt, some caramel, sweet orange, bit of vanish / solvent and a little green apple ester. Some hay on the nose as well. Flavour is composed of dark burnt sugars, caramel, nutty malts and semi sweet sugars. Palate is semi sweet, moderate carbonation. Pretty standard fare.
