Bottled. My good buddy Dake, just sorted this out from the Whole Foods Store. Lovely clear amber colour, with a nice semi-lacy head. Crisp and lovely malt flavours. Smooth and bread like in character. Very quaffable indeed. Drunk in NYC because Fullers want sell it in the UK. Fools!!!

Clear amber coloured, thick head. Malty aroma, some apple, not really impressive. Very nice flavour though, hops and malts in the right balance. Hopbitter finish. Thirst quenching, good beer.

Color is rich amber, like their London Pride. Malty aroma, with some delicious Goldings hops detected. Thin head, clinging lacing. English IPA, meaning there is plenty of malt flavor and some gentle balance from the Goldings hops, which taste so damn good. Maybe I just needed a break from the grapefruit/pine-sol attack of some american IPA's. Sorry, hopheads. Light body and low alcohol. Tastes great, but overpriced for the end result. Aftertaste reminds me of buttermilk biscuits.

A good English IPA that has the biscuit flavor I always associate with Fullers. Lots of lacing, starts big but finishes a little small; my only disappointment.

MaiBockAddict (1497) - Good Beer Bar Deprived, New Jersey, USA - NOV 15, 2003
Light golden color, with lasting white head. Pleasant hop aroma mixed with butterscotch. Pleasant malt flavor, with light hop balance, and a slight butterscotch note. Very drinkable and likeable.

The difference between an english IPA and an american IPA is huge. English IPA's are much milder beers compared to their american counterparts.

Sham (1845) - Seattle, Washington, USA - NOV 15, 2003
Pours a pretty standard amber with a nice frothy white head, leaving good amount of lace. Small malt nose with a little hop aroma. Big malt body starts the flavors and finishes with small hops. Nothing too significant.

harlequinn (2744) - Tacoma, Washington, USA - NOV 12, 2003
Pours a bit of a golden, almost a light brown color. A little tiny head, that tries to hang on but fails, and leaves some light lacing in its wake. A very mellow aroma, has a nicely balanced hop profile, with a sufficient malt backbone. Taste is slightly buttery, but has a nice clean mouthfeel, that is medium bodied and very drinkable. I prefer their ESB.

Bought this in the beautiful 1pt.2.6 oz bottle!! Nice raised brown glass and a classy label. Poured into the glass a nice tasty bright brown , very nice indeed..small head , which lingered down to the bottom of my glass. Smell was not too strong//slighy toffee scent even a slight hint of coffee! Good taste hits the spot! Iv'e had other IPAs with too much taste ..this is nice stays but doesnt linger to long. Feels very good in the mouth. Very drinkable indeed..if not too cold.

UPDATED: JUL 14, 2004 This is a good, big bodied beer with bitter hop flavors, but those flavors and the relative aromas are fairly subtle. Savory malts reign here. The kind of beer I hate to judge without trying it on cask somewhere across the pond.
