COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Only available in pasteurised bottle.
India Pale Ale (IPA) is brewed to a lower original gravity and this beer undergoes a similar process of maturation to the Blue Label. The result is a lighter, more mellow ale with a distinctive hop character.

Travlr (11380) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - AUG 22, 2014
12/13/2008 Mail order in Barton Mills, Suffolk, UK. A bit thin, not much aroma, no head. Not enough hoppy bitterness for a pale ale. Not impressed.

jjsint (748) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 25, 2014
Cask @ White Hart, Crawley. Orange amber, negligible head/lacing. Scent is woody, musty and sulphurous. Bitter and sour notes dominate the taste. Grows on you, but perhaps a beer to respect but not necessarily to love.

ThirstyBird (1544) - Düsseldorf, GERMANY - MAR 22, 2014
Thanks to erzengel for sharing! Pours mahogany orange with a small off-white light tan head. The smell is mild caramel malt, cheerios. The taste is cardboard, mild malt sweetness, some complexity in the middle, fruit, caramel then bitter and dry on the backend. Light body with very mild carbonation.

Finn (4167) - Tromsø, NORWAY - FEB 20, 2014
Fra cask på White Hart, Crawley 22 Jan 14. Mørk gyldenbrun. Middels høyt luftig skum. Beskjeden humlearoma. Gjenkjenner bryggeriets huspreg. Smaken er svakt krydret. Holder seg uforandret. Litt syrlig i avslutninga. Ikke noe typisk IPA - men bra for styrken.

Pours orange. Slightly sweet caramel, not much on the hops, its not bad just not a great deal of taste, meh

Erzengel (2566) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - OCT 5, 2013
Rating from 2012: Sehr schöne schlichte Flasche, das Bier im Glas hat kaum Schaum, dunkelgoldene Farbe. Der Geruch ist interessant-malzig, nach Würze, wie in einer Brauerei. Das Bier ist im Antrunk angenehm herb, dabei leicht süßlich. Zum Hauptteil kommt eine leicht malzige Note hinzu, die Herbe hält sich dominant und kann einen Großteil der Leere, die die 3,2% lassen, ausgleichen. Trotzdem leicht wässrig-dünn - was aber dem Alkoholgehalt geschuldet ist. Der Nachgeschmack ist herb, leicht malzig mit einem Hauch Süße. --> Für 3,2% ein tolles, rundes Bier - deutlich besser als so manches deutsche Light-Bier. --> 12,12,13,11,12,12 - 12,00

Pizd (432) - Merseyside, ENGLAND - AUG 31, 2013
(Cask, GBBF 2013): Clear brown, small white head. Slight grass but not really anything else on the nose, however not unpleasant. Boring, weak flavour of caramel, malt and a touch of fruitiness. Watery and weak. Bad effort.

Desverger (1884) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - AUG 24, 2013
Cask@Charlies Bar, Copenhagen - Amber pour with a medium off-white head. Non distinct hops, sweet caramel malt, grassy, straw, some herbs. Kind of weird overall. Not great.

Scopey (6754) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 3, 2013
Cask at lord Nelson, Brighton. It pours clear brown with a small white head. The nose is earth, wood, light caramel and brown bread. The taste is wood, twig, dull bitterness, leather, cereal and toast with a dry finish. Bland and boring bitter....

mt_hall (111) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 20, 2013
Bottled. Clear, mid-amber, with very little head. Aroma is sweet with malt and a touch of syrup. Flavours are refreshing and clean. Slightly thin, but overall there’s more going on than you expect given the low strength.
