przeciętne IPA, zbyt mało chmielone by mogło posiadać tę nazwę, no ale cóż marketing działa masowo.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Lighter brown with a thin loose foam. Light scent of citrus orange apple from the hops. Maybe some malt. Taste is light malt and hops. Some caramel, biscuit and I get a little apple at the finish. More biscuit as it warms. Palate is light and carbonation is very minimal but it’s a cask pour. Overall un-exciting light session beer.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
April 2009: I am having a Pale Ale day and this is my first one (Purity Mad Goose, Brew Dog Punk IPA and a Brooklyn East India Pale Ale to follow).
The 660ml brown bottle was out of date by two months on opening and was poured into two vase shaped glasses, one a pint, the other a half.
Looked fine, clear and mid-amber in colour, the head was almost white and full, staying for most of the tasting.
Hops dominated the aroma, not ’in your face’ nasty, just a good harty smell (First Gold and Challenger are used).
The hops are also the main feature of the taste, again not over the top. The beer has a good balance and all the ingrediants blend together to produce an easy drinking ale with a typical English IPA feel to it.
At 3.6% you don’t get a huge mouthfeel or heavy body, but you would never guess it had such a low alcohol content.
I am not a big fan of Greene King (for many reasons), but credit where credit is due, this is a good beer and one I have often drunk, although normally in cask form.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: APR 27, 2013 50cl bottle. Pours a light brown with a big creamy white head. Nose : toffee, dough, fruity cake. Crispy citrus. Sip : Low to medium density, the texture is creamy with low carbonation. The beer is dry and decently bitter. Malt flavours are bread, ginger cookie. It ends herbal bitter. Overall it’s a regular bitter with almost no alcohol but the flavour is decent and texture is really good. Easy drinker.
