Pint on draught. Clear golden colour with a good, frothy head that dissipates but leaves a good lacing. Fairly mild aroma with some yeast. Slight sweetness, some roasted malt flavours, a little toast and a moderate bitterness. Not quite balanced enough, needs some more bitterness or some astringency, but a passable session beer.

Una birra ipa fatta male, manca il sapore del luppolo, manca di sapore in generale, leggera e sa di acqua

This was a really awful experience. He beer was bitter (not in a good way) and watery. Looks dull, too. Nothing IPA-like in it I'm afraid. Avoid if you can.

Brown water. Little to recommend it. Boring standard best bitter not IPA and not "best" either. Why bother brewing it at all and why oh why do the England Cricket team take sponsorship money for it ?

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.
