3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pint from the JDW real ale festival. Dark amber colour, clear, one finger head, decent retention. Aroma was berries and yeast, reminded me of a Belgian pale ale. Tasted malt and notes of rasperry, some hoppy bitterness at the finish. Smooth, minimal carbonation, texture on the thick side. Overall this was a good beer, had character, kept me interested.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Clear deep copper color with a small off white layer on top. Flowery, sweet malty and faint citric aroma. Tad sweet and an ok bitterness. Medium body with a soft to flat carbonation. Sweet malty close to diacetyl, faint citric and nutty. Quite disappointing ale. Why call it an IPA when you forget to use a proper amount of hops.

Part of my 2013 backlog. Redish amber colour with a white head. Aroma was buttery and sweet, with malts. The taste wasn’t hoppy for an IPA more malty.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Red with large white head. Musty aroma. Slightly bitter for some balance. Getting used to the English hops, earthier and less resinous and fruity than what I normally drink.

Brown, slight amber glow, thin white head; taste is sweetish juicy malt and citrus fruit; still not that many hops for an IPA; it’s hard not to be prejudiced against this having had to endure a thousand handpumps for the awful basic product over the years; whatever, it’s a million miles better than it’s much-disparaged cousin; a nice full body, especially; pretty decent, in fairness.
