Cask at North Bar, Leeds. I had this while being told that I hadn’t secured the job I wanted, so I may mix up my emotions and characteristics of the beer, for which I apologise in advance. Aroma is of disappointment. No, sorry, I mean hops. Lots of hops. Floral, piney hops. Taste is BITTER. Sorry, that was me again. I mean BITTER. Floral, resiny, piney hops, big, brash, bitter aftertaste. Alcohol is warming. Nice, but not really my thing. The taste of personal failure...

On draft at Tap 25. It pours orange with a very floral, piney aroma. The flavor is extremely floral with lots of rose petals, some apricots and a piney/woody bitter finish. The alcohol is very noticeable and a bit distracting. Pretty brutal finish too. Love the Centennial flavors, but it’s a bit tough to drink.

On tap; this seems to have potential but misses for me. The nose is strongly Centenial and nice. It poured really cloudy dark yellow. Taste is just off for me, it’s syrupy and somehow still seems thin. The alcohol is hot and not subtle at all.

Ok, this was a gift from the salesman to prove to me that Flying Dog can make some decent beers. This one isn’t all bad, but not great either. Typical from this brewery, on the thin, weak, and meek side. Single dimensional, the 10%abv. gives you a warming feeling, and probably saves this beer. I’m glad I didn’t waste money on this.

Draft. Pours court with a thin head. This its the lightest ten percent ipa that I’ve ever had. Smooth like a champagne. Enjoyable.

RBESG August 2011, White Horse on Parsons Green. Golden with a small white head. Sweet juicy fruit and citrus aroma. Sweetish juicy hop flavour on top of (too much) caramel.
