3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cask - The Bell Hotel (JDW), Norwich. Poured a clear golden copper with a lasting, medium sized off-white head. Citric & floral hop profile with a sharpish, tangy edge and a light earthiness. Fair, crisp bitterness in the finish. Quite bright on the palate, light to medium body, medium length bitterness. Seemed to struggle to hit any heights but a drinkable ESB though a bit too chilled & dulled in that Spoons way.

500ml bottle shared by blankboy with me and garthicus. Clear amber, bright, small frothy/creamy off-white head. Smells like an ESB - sweet grain, floral and fruity. Taste is pretty solid - chewy floral grain, solid low-level vaguely herbal bitterness - very grainy, hardly any alcohol (7-). Chewy, fairly thick body, mild carbonation, a well-balanced grainy/floral finish, slightly overly sweet in the aftertaste: clean.

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.
