Theydon_Bois (9960) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - JUL 6, 2014
Bottle at home, from ABM, 06/07/14. Hazed golden orange with a good sized white head of bubbles. Nose is orange marmalade, straw, bread dough, citric peel, light floral notes, caramel. Taste comprises floral hops, light minerals, bitter orange, touch of grapefruit, honey, pithy citrics, mineral wash. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, sharp citric and earthy hop bitterness in the close. Ok stuff, I’d put this more as an APA than IPA bearing in mind the ABV and hop contents.

FatPhil (9643) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - NOV 1, 2013
500ml bottle (Drink Shop, Tallinn)
Lovely English hop aroma, really citrussy like a very fresh EKG or Fuggles, at flame-out ot later. Not lacking in pleasant sweet malts though, a good balance. Lovely in the mouth, gentle bitterness, pleasant carbonation, pleasantly full biscuity malty sweetness, smooth, and succulent. Lovely ESB taste, perfect balance, lacking nothing. So easy to drink, and really makes you want another. In some ways there’s a bit of Fullers 1845 in it, but this is hoppier. I think I might have a few more of these, and see whether I can persuade myself to bump up one of the scores, as 3.7 seems a bit of an underrate, this is an *excellent* strong bitter.

Moderately bitter and slightly sweet flavour, medium to light bodied with a smooth carbonation. Citrus-fruity (grapefruits) and also a bit exotic fruity hoppy taste with a soft pale malt-character; quite dry bitter-sweet fruity hoppy finish. Pleasant pale Ale with a hearty body. 20.IX.10
