Amber colour, thin white head. Faint caramel aroma and very subtle hops. Bland and watery, not an IPA!

Can from 7-11 Taiwan....as part of the beers of summer range. It cost a whopping 109nt and that is post Brexit....not sure why I said that as A- the Brexit doesn’t affect expats in Asia and B - there would be no time for it to affect anything. I am not sure if this is the right version as it was labelled cask. Anyway, it is not an IPA more like a lightly carbonated bitter. Pours a nice amber colour with an off white foamy head...some decent lacing on the glass. Nose reminds me of Abbot ale but taste is more bubbly. Caramel, light malts and hops and a creamy, slightly bitter-sweet aftertaste. Slightly weaker than some Greene King efforts but a good beer for sessioning despite the heavy price tag.

UPDATED: JUN 17, 2016 On tap. Color : clear amber ale, with no white head. Almost no carbonation. Nose : slight aromas of malt. Taste : yeast and herbal. Low bitterness, not really an IPA, rather a low alcohol bitter.

Beautiful brow gold color Thick and creamy foam Very little smell and the taste is almost non existent. An English Ale more than an IPA ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Amber oranje bier met een goede witte schuim kraag. Ruikt zoet, honing. Geen ipa. Smaakt ook zoet, honing. No hop at all.

Beer5000 (5818) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - FEB 29, 2016
Cask @ Fleming Arms, Southampton. Unclear deep golden body with a small off-white head. Not much aroma here, hint of malt and caramel. Flavor is light and smooth malt, some caramel, light fruity with a hint of dry fruit and very moderate bitterness. Medium body and short aftertaste. Smooth with no faults, but to light and smooth for my likings.

Cask in Cairns, Argyle St. Clear amber with a decent creamy head. Slight aroma of cereal, grass, taste is sweet, creamy with a little fruity hop in there somewhere. Pretty bland tbh
