50 cl bottle. pours a flat amber with no head. Aroma is of weak caramel. Taste is slightly sweet. Palate is watery and bland. Poor beer.

Bottle : Nice amber colour, thin head. Hoppy aroma not overly strong. Mild hops and fruitiness. Quite refreshing. Ok.

Absolutely awful drink, it cannot be called a beer. The first association is with carbonated water with slight caramel taste and thatís all. Almost no aroma, absolutely no hops, slight caramel aftertaste. Poor lacing head. No hops in the taste, it has no bitterness and it doesnít need it because it is like water. I really donít know why somebody would make this and who would gone to buy it. Even a stone taste more like IPA than this.

Clear deep golden color with a fine off-white head. A nice fruity and hoppy aroma. Medium (-) body and a fine carbonation. Fruity, malty, mild grassy and mild citric flavor. Mild and nice British ipa.
[Bottle from an off licence in Liverpool, England]

Bottle 500 ml. Making people believe they are buying an IPA while in fact it tastes almost like a bloody lager. Itís not that bad, but itís definitely not an IPA either.

Kolor: bardzo ?adny, bursztynowy i klarowny. Piana zbudowana z drobnych p?cherzykůw, wzorowo oblepia szk?o i prawie idealnie zaznacza ka?dy ?yk. Piana ma kolor lekko ?o?tawy. Aromat: wiod?cy jest karmel, toffee, pů?niej pojawia si? jeszcze troch? suchego zielska. Smak: na etykiecie naskrobane jest IPA, wi?c nastawi?em si? na bodactwo smakůw i mega goryczk?, pierwszy ?yk i ... karmel, kolejny i ... toffee, jest lekko kwaskowo. To by by?o na tyle. Goryczka: nik?a, sucha, trawiasta i jedynie na finiszu. Wysycenie: wysokie, orzezwiajace.

Bottle. Amber, medium carbonated with large foamy head. Aroma of grass and flowers. Characterless taste with grass, pepper, metal and a bland finish. Watery palate. IPA? Really?

A bland excuse for an IPA, Iíve had this on draught twice in my life and both memorable for the wrong reasons. My o/h bought a bottle and I thought Iíd give it a try. Aroma - almost non-existent, taste - some toffee malt, where are the hops? Aftertaste - think again. I really canít understand why this stuff is still made or who would buy it.
