1.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Can’t miss having a pop at this while we’re here. Everyone knows the story. A standard session brew given an award by the indepeant organisation that Green King gives money to. Its dull. Its dishwater. Its a scandle.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle. Rich rusty brown. Thin cream head. Smells coppery and woody with some wheats. Smooth in the mouth, but the taste is a bit "blegh". Copper in the mouth, - dirty pennies soaked in wheatabix water. Needs more bitter hoppiness to really appeal to me as an IPA. And as a bitter, its just a little too unpleasant.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Can, 500 ml. Drunk from said can. I remember this pouring a generic amber colour with a fair amount of creamy white head. Aroma of honey, with perhaps a small amount of resinous hop presence in there, but very minimal for something calling itself an IPA. Tastes quite weak and watery, again the main presence being honey, with a little bit of hoppy bitterness on the back end. Very watery mouth feel with minimal carbonation. Quite bland overall but probably one of the better budget beers available, and for a while in my early years of drinking this was my go-to alternative to lager (still is on occasion, usually when there’s nothing better on tap).

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Amber pour, grassy malt aroma. Taste is earthy, malty and slightly tangy, light bitter notes on the finish. Easily drinkable, but nothing special

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Red, copper. Big foamy head. Smells like a pilsner. Watery body. Mild hops and bitterness. Some caremel and cooked vegetables and metal. Tastes a bit odd. This isn’t good but not horribly bad either. More like a bitter than an IPA.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
This is usually pretty cheep to buy in tins and is a surprisingly drinkable and alright weak bitter. It has enough bitterness of taste to make it worth getting through. Nothing to get excited about but it’s ok!

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: MAY 15, 2014 Nice clear amber with off-white big frothy head. Not that ipaish aroma has lots woody malt, caramel, earthy. Nice malty flavor but can’t say I think it is ipa, more bitterish, medium body, quite soft, medium long malty finish. Well this is just barely ok. Not good as ipa.
