2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
7th July 2015: hand-pulled cask half-pint in the Old Moseley, Birmingham. Very pale body, the thin white head managed to give some impressive lacing from somewhere. Decent blend with no real outstanding flavour or aroma, hops just about winning in the taste stakes towards the end of each sip.

500ml bottle. Honey dominates on the nose, and this is the taste that shines through on the palate too. Disappointing head. A decent refreshing beer, although I would consider this beer to be more of an amber ale than an IPA.

Bottle from Tesco in Dartmouth. Pale tawny aspect. This is not to my taste I’m afraid. It’s dry, yet sickly sweet. Like bad biscuits. The taste is persistent.

Bottle, 500ml. A clear pale straw colour with no head. Aroma of fresh grassy hops, a little citrus. Flavour is a little hoppy with citrus, a little malt and caramel. Watery on the palate. Moderate carbonation. Slight bitterness in the finish. Not an IPA and not interesting as a bitter.

One thing which is really annoying me about London is the fact there are so many beers labeled as ’IPA’ which are in fact Bitter’s. This is one of them. Very caramelised nose and malt driven. Slightly nutty with hints of lemon zest. Taste is quite biscuity with loads of lemon and lime, light pepper, lemon rind. Clean and balanced is a plus. Just doesn’t do it for me considering what I was expecting

Bottled 12/08/13. An orange gold coloured beer with pretty much no head. Definite Goldings fruity character with a bit of sticky malt. Pretty tasty and well brewed although the nose does have a fusty character.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Gentle malty nose with not much hops to speak of. Pours slightly muddy gold with a bit of a dishwatery vibe. The taste is ok - pleasant bitterness and a nice hoppy finish but sadly the whole is slightly undermined by a wateryness and a thinness in the mouthfeel. In summary it’s a fine example of a session bitter, but as they’ve badged it as an IPA I’ll assess it on those terms and it falls short.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask. Golden yellow. Dense white head that stays and laces. Aroma is light. Grassy and hint of citrus
Taste is slightly sweet floral start with hop bitterness at the end. Pleasant enough but it is a bitter - no way an IPA
