3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Hand pulled at Out of the Vaults, Leicester. Very firm, crispy dryness all the way. Tasty hops indeed, with some fruit where required. Orange colour, with a soapy top. This really could be labelled as an IPA, and is a good example of the British interpretation of the style.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A touch of pretol in the aroma starts this beer. Oddly pleasant, though. This has a malt liquour flavour about it, although it isn't that bad. Sugar, caramel and a desert-like dryness sum up this beer. All alc. but no trousers.
