3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Gold, thin frothy head; earthy aroma; grainy malt flavour at first, leading to a hoppy, dry finish; slight sulphuric tinge permeates throughout (this example was possibly slight past its best); easy drinking, but nothing special.

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.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.
