3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cask at Great British Beer Festival. Rusty deep ale with a nice bubbly white top. Honey and orange marmalade style nose. Tastes nice and smooth with the same marmalade notes but not quite hoppy enough for my personal tastes. Finishes sweet.

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.
