PalCabral (140) - - NOV 10, 2012
Bottle from Systembolaget. Pours amber slightly hazy, with a white head that settles to a thin film on the beer. Aroma is classic Fuller’s stuff, flowers, honey, citrus. Of all british beers, I think Fuller’s may have the most lovely aroma of them all. The taste is more ordinary. The goldings hops play first violin with the malty backing from crystal malts, but it makes it slightly one dimensional. Compared to the Pride and the ESP, in between which IPA is sandwiched, the increased bitterness is not matched with an equal increase of caramel malts, thus the beer is weighs over to the bitterside and fails establishing the balance we are accustomed to with Pride and ESP.

gorkogrlo (217) - Zagreb, CROATIA - MAY 24, 2015
Bottle. Amber color. Clear. Medium white head which actually goes very fast. Spicy, peppery, caramel notes in nose. Too light for ipa. Flavor is sweet and well rounded. but again, missing hop character. Medium-full body with semi sweet finish. Overall: ok beer, with great body (which is a signature of fullers), but obviously missing hops. It is not ipa it is more like esb.

PabloZab (403) - Wroclaw, POLAND - MAY 20, 2015
Butelka 0.5l (08.12.2016). Barwa ciemno zlota z biala, niezbyt obfita piana. Lacing slaby. Aromat slodowy, slodkawy, nic specjalnego. W smaku slodowe, lekko kukurydziane z minimalna goryczka. Pijalne ale szalu nie ma.

Amber colour with light brown head, wich immediately disappear. Very mild - or better - poor aroma, you can detect only some herbal notes. Similar problem is taste: mild notes of hops. Firstly sweet, with lightly bitter finish. Body is medium, soft carbonation and bitterness. Very forgettable IPA.

Tognetta (218) - Campinas, BRAZIL - MAY 18, 2015
Ambar, dourada, espuma alaranjada (pouca), com grandes bolhas, se desfaz rapidamente. Aroma leve lupulado, mel. Paladar com amargor e dulçor leves, sem muito impacto, aftertaste bastante breve e maltado. Corpo leve, carbonação média. Uma IPA com boa drinkability, para paladares menos acostumados com altas doses de lúpulo, mas esperava mais.

flemmingwillum (1081) - Nysted, DENMARK - MAY 10, 2015
Rating #1073. Mørk gylden og tydeligt filtreret øl med lille ustabilt skum. Duft af karamel, honning og mild citrus. Smagen har jordbær, citrus, lidt metal, smør og en god bitterhed. Mere humlet end duften umiddelbart indikerer, men alligevel ret ensidig og bliver desværre ødelagt lidt af metalsmagen. Blød og cremet, medium fylde.

50cl bottle at home. Clear amber with a medium white soapy head. Medium body with low to moderate carbonation. Nice bitter tones combined with subtle sweetness. Pine, citrus, grapefruit, hay and herbs. A tasty English IPA.

Deep yellow with thick head. Medium body. Rich aroma of honey, spice, citrus. Medium sweet & bitter taste. A beer of decent class just not my choice.
