2.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
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.

UPDATED: JUL 27, 2016 Draft. Amber with dense head. A: lightest note of exotic fruit, caramel malts. T: caramel malts, sweet apple notes, herbal, medium bitter finish. Better than bottled version.

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

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

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
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.
