3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: DEC 29, 2009 Cask at Salisbury. Clear golden with a small-medium white head. Aroma is a walk in the park, earthy, grassy and tree leaves. Malt flavour is tree branches and the hops have a nice forestry character. Mild-medium bitterness. Very lively carbonation by casks standards. This is a rather common and very popular cask beer in England and I can understand why. I can’t say the same about their boiled beef.

This is an absolutely lousy IPA. It is a rather nice bitter, but no one who has ever tasted an appropriately hopped IPA would confuse this with one. And if you are brewing a bitter, what is the possible good of calling it an IPA?! Some brewer needs a dope slap. On to the notes... <!-- br --> <!-- br -->Cask at the Eagle & Child. Pale copper with a small layer of fine white foam. Lots of ripe fruit in the aroma, a little minty. Very clean and bright. Pleasant mouthfilling fruity yeast character, lively and interesting. A touch of toasted grain in the finish. Nice soft palate with a balanced sweetness. A very pleasant bitter. One thing lacking? Enough hops to make it an IPA!

Poured a nice Golded color with great smell of hops. I got this cask ale at tThe Nag’s Head Pub in Manchester. A little different than most of the bitters I tried (I know its an IPA). Closer to the american craft beers that I like.

May 06. Lemony golden body, white head, lacing. Lovely citrus taste, compared to what I have been drinking it was nice to notice the hops once again. Smooth, can see why it is in a lot ot pubs. Slipped down a treat but would stop at half a dozen or so.
