3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours copper-brown and clear with a finger head. Aroma has strong toffee and nuts. Weaker aromas has fruits. All in all, aroma is a little dull. Taste is very buttery and nutty. It also has little fruits and little sweetness. Palate is quite thin, bitterness is quite mild and palate is all in all very sweet. This was little dissapointment, very nutty (as brittish beers often), but very buttery and little mild.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
0,5 bottle with an interesting design. Dark red amber in the glass, small beige head. Looks good. Musty malty in the nose. Starts dry malty, light coffee, citrus hints in the background. In the middle the citrus gets shortly the overhand, followed again by the coffee. Low hop herb. Dry and flat to the end. Not an IPA as expected.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Maybe not directly an IPA, but a rich and good ale with many pleasant malt flavors laced with balanced bitterness.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Not as typical IPA as I was expecting. Quite boring and flavourless. Some ok hops but not even close to a IPA on my standard

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
(Bottle) Brownish amber colour with frothy, beige head. Malty, slightly fruity nose with notes of crisp-bread, dried apricots, treacle toffee, nuts and dusty hops. Malty taste with rye bread, dried apricots, orange peel, honey, a slightly syrupy malt character and dusty hops in finish with a balanced bitterness. Medium body, with a touch of sweetness. Decent but hardly exciting.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
je moet in Tallinn zijn om een Britse IPA te proeven.. Aanvankelijk fris, maar afdronk is zéér kort. ok voor 5% alcohol ben je met dit nog beter af als een normale pint, maar kan toch beter.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
33cl bottle from Auchan (Luxembourg). A real deception... Waiting for an IPA and I got a flavourless beer. Start bitter and ends rapidly to an empty, void of flavour.
