Not really an IPA, but I enjoyed it none the less. However seemed fairly creamy.

Amber colour. Smooth and medium bodied. Quite a fresh flavour with some haylage and grassy notes to finish.

MichaelAwesome (3871) - Wanne-Eickel, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - AUG 5, 2014
On tap at a Pub in Eastbourne. I still wonder how that one could have become that popular. It develops nearly no aroma, beside few hoppish moments, and offers no taste. I mean, I could have had some water with alcohol infused instead. Annoying drink.

McTapps (3869) - Ruhrcity, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - AUG 5, 2014
On tap at Alexandra Arms in Eastbourne. Pours out in a light brown colour with low head and flat body. Aroma of malt and torf. Taste of malt, straw, nuts and barley. Dusty and boring finish. Lacks body and deepness, plus it tastes like some cheap brew. Awful stuff.

cask. Amber, frothy head. Malty, no hop profile at all. Its drinkable enough, but very light and not terribly interesting.

Cask by hand-pump at Chestnuts Hotel, Ayr - clear copper coloured ale, thin creamy off-white head, fruity caramel aroma, excellent film of fine lacing, fruity, caramel, toffee flavour, carbonation good to high, easy to drink

Surprisingly caramel aroma and darker in appearance than I was expecting. Strangely fruity and caramel fusion. Bit unpleasant but weaker than hoped. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Marstonlad (407) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAY 30, 2014
At the Turf Tavern, Oxford. A color of copper with a little white head. Aroma contains some fruitiness and malty notes but is on the whole weak. Taste is very light bitter, drying toward finish. Fruitiness provides most of the flavours. Light, even a bit watery palate. This was way too light and thin for me, an IPA only in name.

Serapac (94) - CZECH REPUBLIC - MAY 24, 2014
Cask at Sherlock Holmes. Weak tea colour, almost no head. Faintly hoppy aroma, bland taste. One of the poorest IPAs tasted to date. A part of the experience was also the fact that it was served at room temperature, which I find most unusual for an IPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
