3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
500ml bottle. Pours light copper with a very thin head. A little darker in colour than expected. Mild, fresh aroma. Slightly floral with moderate to strong hops and a light sweetness. Mild malt and a moderately long finish that’s not too sharp. Not quite as smooth as I’d hoped but well balanced and very enjoyable.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
It’s like an English Pale Ale, a bit stronger, a bit more bitter ... but not an IPA!
Nose is really weak, palate is unbalanced: malt backbone is missing.

2.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: NOV 2, 2012 IPA...Basic English ale with IPA label with a some plums in the flavors and German Hallertau hops taste. Pretty ok, but definitely not IPA as is of 2012. Good ale, drinkable sure but dull.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
500ml Bottle Aroma is biscuity maltiness giving way to slightly floral hoppy notes. Appearance is an amber body with a vanishing white head. Taste is moderate carbonation passing into biscuitness and into a grassy hops and through into a bitter citrus finish. Not a lot to write home about in this one - a bit bland and lacking in character.
