Copper / amber pour. Some notes of hop and sweet toffee. Hop finish accompanied by a bold citrus ending. It was ok. I thought it lacked charecter.

0,5 l bottle, Tesco, South Tottenham, Greater London.
Amber cloudy beer with a nice creamy-foamy off white head. Moderated aroma and flavor with some pale malt, sourish fruitiness of an average english pale ale, some herbal hop.

0,5 ml bottle, bought at British Store, Budapest.
Poured orange reddish with a froathy white head that diminishes quickly to a small but stable creamy tan head. Aroma of some caramel, light fruits and fine herbal-resiny hops. Medium body, oily texture with fruits on the palate some raisin, fig and apple, toasted charamel, nice powerful but balanced resiny herbal hop. Delicious!

Donker amberkleurig bier. Helder. Matige witte kraag, bier is snel dood. Fris zoethoppig met bittere nasmaak.

UPDATED: NOV 3, 2011 18/10/2011 50cl bottle @ Klaasí place - BB: 17/5/13 (2011-560) Thanks to Klaas for sharing the bottle!

clear deep orange beer, small white irregular head, unstable, bit adhesive. Aroma: lots of peaches, some pineapple, sweet fruity, piny when swivelling the beer around. MF: lots of carbon, medium body. Taste: fruity, some pineapple, some citrus, gently bitter, little nutty, hops. Aftertaste: still very fruity, peaches, bitter orange zest, almonds. Iím pretty sure I like English IPAís just as much as American ones, at least if they can match this quality.

futre7 (149) - Taipei, TAIWAN - OCT 18, 2011
Bought in an import store near my work on Nanjing East road Taipei City. Pale amber to look at. The nose is a slightly bitter hoppy smell. It has a thick white head ( although mine was bouncing around in my bag on the way home so maybe thatís the reason). The taste is not as distinct as London Pride or the ESB but still it has a lovely flavour. Hoppy and slightly bitter with elements of biscuit and malt and nut. The finish is crisp with no aftertaste. Very enjoyable.

Gold and amber color, a thin white head. Moderate fruity hop aroma. Bitter hop on the palate. Orange peel, sweet and fruity malt. A slight mineral feel. Long, bitter and astringent finish. B@H

ration (1971) - Tampere, FINLAND - OCT 15, 2011
Bottle 500ml. Copper with a rocky foam. aroma bread cereal. Not nearly as hoppy as the average IPA out there. Medium body with a soft carbonation. Somewhat disappointing overall.

SilkTork (5277) - Rochester, Kent, United Kingdom, Kent, ENGLAND - OCT 15, 2011
500ml bottle, 5.3%, live. Pale gold colour. Juicy aroma. Sweet biscuit malt, rather thin and dry for the strength, and fragrant hops with candy peel and other citric notes. A pleasant drink. Hoppy, but not aggressive. The malt is a little too clean and characterless for my licking, but the whole package is very pleasant and drinkable, leaving a refreshing hoppy citric zing in the mouth.

Amber, thin head. Citrus, grassy, floral aroma. Grassy hops, citrus notes. Thin palate, bit flat. Well balanced, drinkable.
