0.33 bottle. pours clear gold with small white head. Faint arome of piney hops. sweet initial taste of caramel malts, followed by cream and light hoppy bitterness. Light and easy dringing

Diabobale (310) - Vallata, SUD ITALIA, ITALY - SEP 1, 2015
Un ibrido tra una pale ale americana e una inglese almeno considerando il corpo e i malti. Si presenta di color ambrato, molto limpido, con schiuma abbondante e beige abbastanza persistente. Al naso le note caramellate accompagnano le fruttate (albicocca su tutte) e un leggero sentore di carruba. Al palato la carbonazione abbastanza esile come pure il corpo, in puro stile british. Al gusto ancora note caramellate e biscottate, con lievi sentori caramellati ed erbacei. La bevuta facile.

BeerViking (3265) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 1, 2015
Bottle from Morrisons, light toffee on the nose, dry and earthy bitter, some nutty dry-sweet malt, a nice hoppy bitter but a bit lacking in body.

From keg at the Plough, Clapham Junction on 28 August 2015. Hazy bronze colour. Scant off-white head. More Wells than Dogfish Head. Not bad but all rather underpowered. Somewhat thin and watery mouthfeel although it is fairly refreshing. I have some better notes from an earlier tasting (from cask) somewhere so will update when find them.

It's a watered down dogfish 60 served at the traditional English bitter temperature. Better than most bland London ales but not that good if you want some hops. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

peponi (832) - Krakow, POLAND - AUG 17, 2015
Aroma: caramel and nothing else. Appearence: amber color and almost no head. Taste: medium herbal bitterness, quite stalky, caramel, herbs everywhere, dry. Palate: low body and medium carbonation. Overall: What a joke! It is a tragic beer. Dogfish, where are you?

Bottle BBE: 11/03/16. Well-chilled. Pours a rich, hazy amber with small/negligible patchy head. Low-medium intensity floral hop aromas, a little fruit (banana/tropical). A hint of biscuity malt. A pleasant, light floral sweetness works in harmony with a light bitterness. Light-bodied with a thin texture, medium carbonation and a gentle, lingering finish. Nothing much of note here, but an enjoyable, sessionable ale. The subtle hop character is fresh and pleasant.

Wow, I think this beer is a little bit underated. Well, this is not IPA, this is more American pale ale style. Nice bitter taste, great beer for hot summer days. Grass, floral and light citrus aroma, taste of caramel, toffee, biscuit. Nice beer.

Id say this is a session IPA. Light gold color, clear, average head. Thin malts profile, smooth american hops. Light body, watery, mild bitter finish. Sadly not as expeted, pretty weak and average, what a pity... still ok tho.
