Thanks to Bill for the bottle. Thin head, nice copper color, smells a bit off. Mildly hoppy and smooth with a pleasant creamy mouthfeel. Not too complex but solid in its own way.

Belle couleur brune dorée; arômes et goût intéressant mais trop discrets; un peu de malt et de houblon; finale légèrement amère; une bonne bière sans plus,

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Appearance with copper color and low head.
Medium Aroma: caramel, aged wood and burnt sugar.
In the mouth, it is a lightweight IPA without much personality, the caramel is more evident than the hops.
But it was worth the tasting.

50cl bottle at Feel good music cafe, Tartu. Pours dark amber with an off-white head. Caramely aroma with malty notes and lightly hoppy. Hints of mild citrus and fruits. Medium sweet with a bitterness on the lighter side. Weak in flavour and fairly boring, but drinkable enough.

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.
