Bottle 50 cl. Copper color with minimum white head. Notes of floral, grass, citrus, caramel. Really light body and taste with decent crispy finish. Needs more depth and body.

Hardly an IPA. No crisp hops, no bitterness no freshness. Smooth indeed, almost velvety. As served at room temp and no carb it's not a summer beer.. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Canned. Orange with a creamy, dense and compact off-white head, good lacing. Aroma is light caramel, slightly fruity and brown sugar. Bittery and floral flavor, English hops with hints of caramel. Bittery final with good duration, dry sensation.

Theydon_Bois (7904) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - MAR 10, 2013
Tap at the Quin’s Head, Twickenham Stoop stadium, 09/03/13. Pours a (chill) hazed golden amber with a big creamy light beige head that retains well. Nose is GK yeasts, light caramel, biscuit, cereals. Taste follows - not a lot doing, touch citrus and slight metallic tones. Medium bodied, soft carbonation, smooth on the palate, cold !!! Bland keg offering from an already bland brewer - pretty much as I expected!

SarkyNorthener (1684) - Walsall (Yorkshire Expat), West Midlands, ENGLAND - OCT 23, 2012
Keg. Dark amber colour small head. Faint aroma of hops. Taste is pretty weak, small amount bittering hops. Unremarkable.

fletchfighters (1028) - AUSTRALIA - AUG 19, 2012
A-- Poured a clear, dark amber color. Very short lived off white head that quickly went to film. Decent head retention as head goes to one finger and slowly dies off. Little bit of carbonation showing in pour and just a few wisps of film. S-- Stewed asparagus, stewed cabbage and a bit of cat pee. Using a sav blanc reference. A bit herbal skunky and soapy but does have some freshness to this. Nose softens up a bunch with air and gets more palatable. T-- Lots of hop presence in the taste. Mostly spicy vegetable hop taste but not that bad. Not a fruit or pine bitterness and it is very short lived. M-- Thin and sweet. Very much like a simple syrup taste. Hops drop off and get a lot of residual sweetness. Keep thinking thin iced tea but quite clean. Light feel and medium carbonation. O-- Not a lot to this and not all that bad. As a palate changer it works. Not something I would want a lot of but it works in some odd way.
