3.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
No aroma to speak of and only its name and history keep it from being classed as a golden ale. Pleasant on the palate and not in the least bit sweet, the over-riding flavour is of freshly baked bread. Surprisingly bitter finish. Very drinkable.

Cask. Aroma of roasted malt. Golden colour with lace top. Tastes of wholemeal bread and bread. Light and easy drinking with a refreshing bitter sparkle in the finish. My ideal session bitter if the aim was mainly to keep company but it’s unlikely to win a CAMRA award these days given the abundance of great IPAs around.

Ship tavern, cask. Duchars IPA 3,8% a deep golden orange with an old school UK IPA aroma that is more malty than hoppy. Soft bodied with a distinct earthy tobacco leaf & lemon flavor. Interesting as a mild or English bitter but not really my image of an IPA.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Faint hoppy aroma with yeasty notes. Clear gold colour. Slight bitter front with notes of bread and weak hoppy finish. Medium body with low carbonation. Sufficiently pleasant and easily drinkable, but not too interesting.
