An Anglo-American ale brewed with a reduction of 60 minute IPA and Charles Well’s traditional English brewing ingredients.

Anglo American with the emphasis on Anglo. Caramel malts to the fore with citrus well behind. Rusty orange, little head, little aroma and fairly thin. Nicely drinkable though.

Not really enough alcohol to be classed as an IPA. Neither has it the hopping to be anything American. Pours much darker than you would expect of either. So this is a pleasant pale ale. No more, no less.

Nothing like a ’new world IPA’. Tastes more like an English bitter. Nothing’s tands out in terms of anything.

I really like this beer. Just doing an IPA session and this is leading the way. Nicely balanced, good hoppy character and citrus. Love it !

On tap. White, frothy head, fairly persistent. Not very intense and persistent at nose. Malty, grassy, poor fruity esters. A bit of coffe in the mouth. I tried it in bottle and it was better and different.

330 ml bottle. The first thing that you notice when you crack it open is a weird kind of cardboard aroma. The appearance is fairly typical but the head is thin and foamy and taste is fairly typical of a pale ale but would be better with a bit more body. Overall this is okay but nothing special - seems to lacking a bit in flavor with a limited hop presence on the tongue.

Butelka 0.33L.
Wygląd: Bursztynowe, klarowne z iskrą. Niska, biała piana, redukuje się do pierścienia. Lekko znaczy szkło.
Aromat: Nikły, mokry karton, metaliczny. Pachnie koncernowym, starym, eurolagerem.
Odczucie: Niskie ciało, wysycenie średnie, faktura papierowo-metaliczna.
Smak: Delikatne, jasne słody, ziemiste, lekko karmelowe. Lekkie brytyjskie ALE.
Całość: Rozczarowanie roku (pite 31 grudnia;)

Bue en bouteille de 33cl. Pale ale style, houblons présents mais discrets. Peu de corpulence. Bel équilibre général.

Not bad, but over-fizzy and a bit lagery. On the pale side of the pale ales, without much of a head.

Pale golden pour. The aroma is awesome. A soft zestiness and a touch of light fruit. Soft honied malt . Has a bit of lemon and some nice zestiness. It’s really a lovely beer.
