2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
03-JUL-2014, @draft Union Jacks (Jamie Oliver) in Covent Garden.
Clear golden with low off-white head. Weak aroma. Taste is malty and hoppy. More malty than hoppy actually. Fruit, spice, citrus. Sweet with a touch of bitterness. Not an IPA.

Really pleasantly surprised to find this slightly malty strongish beer. IPA is the rage but this isn't following a trend. Nice, well balanced and great with a curry.

Bottle at Zeera in South Shields. I ate alone. They put me in the centre of the room like an exhibit. The meal was really delicious. Naga chillies but used correctly so that it had all the flavour without a totally dominant spice. It’s been a while since I had a curry that good. The beer was alright too. Acted as a good foil to the curry.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
330 ml bottle. Clear, dark golden body with a light off-white head. Mild but nice aroma of malt and citric fruit. Flavor is mild as well, soft, sweet light malt with a rather discreet fruitiness and low bitterness. Medium body and moderate in aftertaste. I choose to ignore the fact that this is supposed to be an IPA, as otherwise this is actually a quite nice, clean British style session beer. Nothing extraordinary rally, but tasty and balanced in a modest way with no off flavors.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. A clear, golden beer with a small, dense, off-white head of moderate size. Some lacings. The aroma is weak, with a light fruityness. Not much malts to be detected. The flavor has some bitterness, a faint touch of toffee, and a biscuity maltyness. Medium body, quite dry, with a decent carbonation level. Bitter finish. Pretty boring this one, not much IPA-ish. 140110

Bottle, pours amber, nose of citrus fruits, orange a hint of grass and floral notes. Malty sweetness with a touch of hoppy bitterness, the smell is better than the taste which is a real pity.

14th December 2013
Bright clear amber beer, good pale cream coloured head. Palate is light, airy and a little crisp. Smooth and semi dry malt - sweetish and slightly lagerish. Whispers of spice and lactose. Hops are somewhat in the background but there is a little mellow tropical fruits. Finishes dry with a light spice. Not really an IPA but not a bad beer.
